Imaging Study for High-Grade Epithelial Ovarian Cancer

common.study.values.description

18F-DCFPyL PET/CT in High-grade Epithelial Ovarian Cancer (PET HOC)

The purpose of this study is to determine whether high grade epithelial ovarian cancers (=HG EOC) are 18F-DCFPyL (=2-(3-(1-carboxy-5-[(6-[18F]fluoro-pyridine-3-carbonyl)-amino]-pentyl)-ureido)-pentanedioic acid)-avid and to compare the performance of this PET to CT and findings at time of surgery Background: There is a need for better noninvasive tools that will map disease extent in HG EOC. A recent study has shown that at immunohistochemistry GCP=II is overexpressed in ovarian cancer tumors, both primary and metastatic. Glucose carboxypeptidase-II (=GCP-II), also known as prostate specific membrane antigen (= PSMA) has been used clinically to assess patients with prostate cancer and many other tumors have been shown to be PSMA-avid on PET (including renal cell carcinomas). 18F-DCFPyL has the potential to improve patient selection for primary therapy. If successful, this may decrease the rate of futile surgeries and associated morbidity and better direct patients to the most appropriate therapy primary debulking surgery (PDS) vs neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT). Furthermore, if high-level GCP-II expression is shown at preoperative imaging in patients with HG EOC, this may be used in considering feasibility of future theranostic applications. Study Design: This is a single arm pilot study to assess whether HG EOC are 18F-DCFPyL-avid. In this prospective trial, the investigators will recruit 20 women whom will undergo conventional staging with contrast-enhanced CT of the abdomen and pelvis as per standard of care. All disease sites, primary and metastatic will be recorded using a standardized reporting template. Subsequently, 18F-DCFPyL-PET/CT will be performed (within 6 weeks of CT). All disease sites on PET will be recorded using same reporting template in addition to qualitative and semiquantitative evaluation (SUV measurement) of all known tumor sites.
