T-Cell PET Imaging With [18F]F-AraG in Lung Cancer


Brief description of study

This is a single-center cross-sectional imaging study in patients with localized lung cancer undergoing immunotherapy with or without stereotactic radiation therapy as part of the companion clinical trial (NCT03217071; Pembrolizumab With and Without Radiotherapy for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer). Each patient will undergo a single [18F]F-AraG PET exam as part of this study. [18F]F-AraG will be administered at a single time point intravenously prior to PET imaging. Whole-body PET will be acquired along with a whole body low dose CT (PET/CT) used for attenuation correction and anatomic localization of [18F]F-AraG uptake, SUV calculation, and volumetric selection for radiomic analyses.

Detailed Study Description

This is a single-center cross-sectional imaging study in patients with localized lung cancer undergoing immunotherapy with or without stereotactic radiation therapy as part of the companion clinical trial (NCT03217071; Pembrolizumab With and Without Radiotherapy for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer). Each patient will undergo a single [18F]F-AraG PET exam as part of this study. [18F]F-AraG will be administered at a single time point intravenously prior to PET imaging. Whole-body PET will be acquired along with a whole body low dose CT (PET/CT) used for attenuation correction and anatomic localization of [18F]F-AraG uptake, SUV calculation, and volumetric selection for radiomic analyses.

A total of 20 patients will be enrolled over an accrual period of approximately 12 months. Approximately 10 patients will be enrolled in the immunotherapy alone cohort and approximately 10 patients will be enrolled in the immunotherapy and stereotactic radiation therapy cohort.

Patients will be evaluated one day and one week via telephone after each radiopharmaceutical injection for safety follow-up. All adverse events will be recorded. Due to the noninvasive and non-therapeutic nature of the study, potential risks of the study are anticipated to be low.
