Study Description
Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 1 study is to visualize biodistribution of a PET tracer called [18F]F-AraG (VisAcT) in cancer patients expected to undergo immunotherapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cancer Drug: [18F]F-AraG Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This is an exploratory Phase 1, prospective study assessing the biodistribution and radiation dosimetry of the Positron Emission Tomography [18F]FAraG (VisAcT) in cancer patients selected for immunotherapy. Each patient may have up to two [ 18F]FAraG PET imaging sessions, a baseline image and a post start of immunotherapy image. For each imaging session, patients will receive a single injection of [ 18F]FAraG and undergo up to four whole-body PET scans in the same day. Blood samples may be collected at up to 9 time points post-injection to analyze whole-blood/plasma time activity of [18F]FAraG. Following each imaging session, we will also assess safety in each subject. Blood pressure, heart rate, pulse oximetry, temperature, and respiratory count measurements as well as an electrocardiogram (ECG) recording will be taken prior to imaging, and after whole-body PET scans are completed.

Arms and Interventions

Intervention Details:
    Drug: [18F]F-AraG
    Single dose IV injection of [18F]F-AraG for each imaging day.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Visualize biodistribution of the PET tracer [18F]F-AraG pre-immunotherapy [ Time Frame: Up to 6 weeks before immunotherapy is administered ]
    Whole-body [18F]F-AraG PET scans will be performed at up to 4 different consecutive time points the day of the intravenous injection of the PET tracer. Up to four whole-body images will be obtained that will reveal biodistribution of [18F]F-AraG at up to 4 different consecutive time points on the day of the intravenous injection.

  2. Visualize biodistribution of the PET tracer [18F]F-AraG post start of immunotherapy [ Time Frame: Up to 12 weeks after start of immunotherapy ]
    Whole-body [18F]F-AraG PET scans will be performed at up to 4 different consecutive time points the day of the intravenous injection of the PET tracer. Up to four whole-body images will be obtained that will reveal biodistribution of [18F]F-AraG at up to 4 different consecutive time points on the day of the intravenous injection.
