Prostate Cancer Clinical Trial
68Ga-RM2 PET/CT in Detecting Regional Nodal and Distant Metastases in Patients With Intermediate or High-Risk Prostate Cancer
This phase II trial studies how well gallium Ga 68-labeled gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPR) antagonist BAY86-7548 (68Ga-RM2) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) works in detecting regional nodal and distant metastases in patients with intermediate or high-risk prostate cancer. 68Ga-RM2 PET/CT scan may be able to see smaller tumors than the standard of care CT or magnetic resonance imaging scan.
I. To evaluate 68Ga-RM2 PET/CT for detection of intermediate and high-risk prostate cancer prior to prostatectomy.
Patients receive 68Ga-RM2 intravenously (IV). Within 45-60 minutes, patients undergo a PET/CT scan. Patients may undergo a second PET/CT scan immediately after the first scan for attenuation correction. Patients may undergo also a repeat 68Ga-RM2 PET/CT scan after the completion of their treatment to evaluate response to therapy, if requested by the treating physician.
After completion of study, patients are followed up at 24-48 hours and within 3-12 months.
Biopsy proven prostate adenocarcinoma
Planned prostatectomy with lymph node dissection
Intermediate to high-risk disease (as determined by elevated PSA [PSA > 10], T-stage [T2b or greater], Gleason score [Gleason score > 6] or other risk factors)
Able to provide written consent
Karnofsky performance status of >= 50 (or Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group [ECOG]/World Health Organization [WHO] equivalent)
Diagnostic CT or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed within 30 days prior to the 68Ga-RM2 PET
Inability to lie still for the entire imaging time (approximately 30 minutes)
Inability to complete the needed investigational and standard-of-care imaging examinations due to other reasons (severe claustrophobia, radiation phobia, etc.)
Any additional medical condition, serious intercurrent illness, or other extenuating circumstance that, in the opinion of the Investigator, may significantly interfere with study compliance
