  Purpose

RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as copper Cu 64-DOTA-trastuzumab-labeled PET, may help doctors to plan a better treatment

PURPOSE: This pilot trial is studying copper Cu 64-tetra-azacyclododecanetetra-acetic acid (DOTA)-trastuzumab-labeled positron emission tomography (PET) in women with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive breast cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose of pre-administered cold antibody that optimizes image quality of 64Cu-DOTA-trastuzumab PET [ Time Frame: 24 and 28 hours after injection of 64 CU-DOTA-trastuzumab ]
  • Correlation of tumor uptake on 64Cu-DOTA-trastuzumab PET with tumor expression of HER2 [ Time Frame: 24 and 28 hours after injection of 64 CU-DOTA-trastuzumab ]
  • Relationship between uptake on 64Cu-DOTA-trastuzumab PET, HER2 overexpression, and inactivation of the PI3K/Akt pathway [ Time Frame: 24 and 28 hours after injection of 64 CU-DOTA-trastuzumab ]
    Peak SUV will be plotted against HER2+ status.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Determine the dose of pre-administered cold antibody that optimizes image quality of 64Cu-DOTA-trastuzumab PET without increasing the radiation dose to the heart in women with metastatic HER2 positive breast cancer.

II. Determine whether tumor uptake on 64Cu-DOTA-trastuzumab PET correlates with tumor expression of HER2 in women with metastatic disease.

III. Perform an exploratory analysis of the relationship between uptake on 64Cu-DOTA-trastuzumab PET, HER2 overexpression, and inactivation of the PI3K/Akt pathway.

OUTLINE:

This is a part one dose-determining study followed by a part two study. PART ONE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 3 dose levels. Patients undergo a PET scan 24-48 hours after injection of 64 Cu-DOTA-trastuzumab. PART TWO: Patients undergo a PET scan 24-48 hours after injection of 64 Cu-DOTA-trastuzumab at the optimal dose as determined in part one of the study.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Eligibility Part I (Determination of the cold dose)

  • Participants must be women who have histological confirmation of metastatic invasive breast cancer that has metastasized outside the region of the primary tumor and axilla. Biopsy must be obtained within 28 days prior to study. Patients must have metastatic disease in lung, liver, soft-tissue or bone to qualify for the study (more than one site is permissible).
  • At least 1 non-hepatic site of metastasis greater than or equal to 2 cm in mean diameter must be identified in addition to the site that was biopsied.
  • The cancer must over express HER2 as determined by IHC and FISH.
  • Patients may have received trastuzumab in the adjuvant, neoadjuvant, or metastatic setting, but cannot have received the drug within the prior 2 months.
  • Participants must have normal cardiac ejection fraction.

Eligibility Part 2 (correlation of HER2 expression with PET uptake)

  • Participants must be women who have histological confirmation of metastatic invasive breast cancer that has metastasized outside the region of the primary tumor and axilla. Biopsy must be obtained within 28 days prior to study. Patients must have metastatic disease in lung, liver, soft-tissue or bone to qualify for the study (more than one site is permissible).
  • At least 1 non-hepatic site of metastasis site greater than or equal to 2 cm in mean diameter must be identified in addition to the site that was biopsied.
  • Participants with HER2 1+, 2+ and 3+ by IHC are eligible.
  • Patients may have received trastuzumab in the adjuvant, neoadjuvant, or metastatic setting, but cannot have received the drug within the prior 2 months.
  • Participants must have normal cardiac ejection fraction.

Ineligibility

  • Participants who have received trastuzumab within the prior 2 months
  • Participants who are not considered candidates for trastuzumab
  • Metastatic disease in a single site
  • No metastatic site greater than or equal to 2 cm
