Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Sensitivity of PSMA PET for the detection of regional nodal metastases compared to pathology at radical prostatectomy on a per patient basis using nodal regional correlation. [ Time Frame: one month ]
    Patients who have a positive node on imaging and on pathology will be considered a true-positive. Patients who have no nodes on imaging and pathology will be considered true- negatives. Patients with positive nodes on imaging and negative on pathology will be considered false positives and those with positive nodes on pathology but negative on imaging will be considered false negatives. Point estimate of the sensitivity will be calculated with the corresponding 95% confidence interval.

  • Specificity of PSMA PET for the detection of regional nodal metastases compared to pathology at radical prostatectomy on a per patient basis using nodal regional correlation. [ Time Frame: one month ]
    Patients who have a positive node on imaging and on pathology will be considered a true-positive. Patients who have no nodes on imaging and pathology will be considered true- negatives. Patients with positive nodes on imaging and negative on pathology will be considered false positives and those with positive nodes on pathology but negative on imaging will be considered false negatives. Point estimate of the specificity will be calculated with the corresponding 95% confidence interval.

  • Positive Predictive Value of PSMA PET for the detection of regional nodal metastases compared to pathology at radical prostatectomy on a per patient basis using nodal regional correlation. [ Time Frame: one month ]
    Patients who have a positive node on imaging and on pathology will be considered a true-positive. Patients who have no nodes on imaging and pathology will be considered true- negatives. Patients with positive nodes on imaging and negative on pathology will be considered false positives and those with positive nodes on pathology but negative on imaging will be considered false negatives. Point estimate of the Positive Predictive Value will be calculated with the corresponding 95% confidence interval.

  • Negative Predictive Value of PSMA PET for the detection of regional nodal metastases compared to pathology at radical prostatectomy on a per patient basis using nodal regional correlation. [ Time Frame: one month ]
    Patients who have a positive node on imaging and on pathology will be considered a true-positive. Patients who have no nodes on imaging and pathology will be considered true- negatives. Patients with positive nodes on imaging and negative on pathology will be considered false positives and those with positive nodes on pathology but negative on imaging will be considered false negatives. Point estimate of the Negative Predictive Value will be calculated with the corresponding 95% confidence interval.


Estimated Enrollment: 150
Actual Study Start Date: October 2016
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Ga-68 labeled PSMA-11 PET
PSMA PET imaging: Patients will receive Ga-68 labeled PSMA-11 PET and then undergo PET/CT or PET/MRI approximately 55-70 minutes later.
Drug: Ga-68 labeled PSMA-11 PET
Patients will be imaged using Ga-68 labeled PSMA-11 PET to determine if the presence of metastatic disease. Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen (PSMA) is a protein expressed on prostate cancer cells that can be imaged using small molecules that target this protocol.
Other Names:
  • Ga-68 labeled DKFZ-PSMA-11
  • Ga-68 labeled Glu-NH-CO-NH- Lys(Ahx)-HBED-CC
  • Ga-68 labeled Glu-urea- Lys(Ahx)-HBED-CC
  • Ga-68 labeled HBED-CC PSMA

Detailed Description:

Imaging and staging of prostate cancer is critical for surgical and treatment planning. Patients with suspected metastatic prostate cancer will be imaged using Gallium-68 labeled PSMA-11 in order to demonstrate its utility. The investigators plan to utilize this data to obtain further approvals of the Ga-68-PSMA-11 compound, so that this agent will become available for clinical imaging in prostate cancer patients. In the pre-prostatectomy population, the primary objective is to determine the sensitivity and specificity for detection on nodal metastasis.

This compound has been shown to be superior to choline based PET agents for the staging of prostate cancer, both Carbon-11 and Fluorine-18 compounds. But this compound was not patented and therefore no company or private entity will make the investment required to bring Ga-68-PSMA-11 to market. In the vacuum of availability, academic groups must take the lead in order to collect the necessary data for future FDA approval.
