Brief Summary:

Study objective:

Cohort 1: To quantify the uptake of 68GaNOTA-Anti-HER2 VHH1 in local or distant metastases from breast carcinoma patients and to assess repeatability of the image-based HER2 quantification. The uptake will be correlated to results obtained via biopsy of the same lesion, if available.

Cohort 2: To report on uptake of 68GaNOTA-Anti-HER2 VHH1 in different cancer types that might overexpress HER2

Cohort 3: To explore the feasibility and added value of 68GaNOTA-Anti-HER2 VHH1 in the neoadjuvant setting of HER2-expressing breast carcinoma

Time schedule: After inclusion, patients will be injected intravenously with 37 - 185 MBq 68GaNOTA-Anti-HER2 VHH1 with a total mass of up to 200 μg NOTA-Anti-HER2 VHH1. Serum and plasma samples will be collected at injection. At 90 min after injection, a total body PET/CT scan will be performed.

Patients in cohort 1 will undergo a second PET/CT procedure, identical to the first procedure, within 8 days, with a minimal interval of 18h and maximal interval of 8 days. Patients in cohort 2 can undergo an optional 18F-FDG-PET/CT within 21 days prior to or after 68GaNOTA-Anti-HER2 VHH1. In cohort 1 and 2, based on PET/CT images, up to 2 lesions will be selected for optional image-guided biopsy. Biopsy will be performed max. 28 days after the last PET/CT. Plasma and serum samples will be obtained between 60 and 365 days after first injection for patients in cohort 1 and between 42 and 365 days after first injection for patients in cohort 2.

Patients in cohort 3 will undergo 68GaNOTA-Anti-HER2 VHH1 PET/CT prior to the start of neoadjuvant treatment and again after the last cycle of neoadjuvant treatment but prior to surgery. Plasma and serum samples will be obtained before each injection and between 42 and 365 days after the last injection.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Cancer patients

Cohort 1: locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer patients

Cohort 2: Patients with locally advanced, unresectable, or metastatic cancer disease of breast with low, intermediate or high HER2-expression, salivary gland; gastric body or gastro-esophageal junction; endometrium; uterus; lung; biliary tract; gallbladder; pacreas; colorectum; urothelium; prostate; other solid with intermediate or high HER2-expression

Cohort 3: Patients with local or locally advanced HER2-+ breast carcinoma, who are planned for neo-adjuvant treatment prior to surgery, and who are suspected for axillary lymph node invasion.

Drug: 68GaNOTA-Anti-HER2 VHH1

All subjects will receive at least one single intravenous injection of the IMP followed by a total body PET/CT prior to receiving standard-of-care therapy.

A second injection of the IMP can be administered before or during standard-of-care treatment, depending on cohort.

Other Name: HER2-PET/CT




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Repeatability of lesional PET/CT characteristics [ Time Frame: 90 min post injection ]
    The lesional tracer uptake in local and distant metastases of at least 12 mm (for lymph nodes short axis) will be measured on both PET/CT's (expressed as standard uptake value (SUV) and repeatability will be calculated.

  2. Tracer update of 68GaNOTA-Anti-HER2 VHH1 in different cancer types [ Time Frame: 90 min post injection ]
    The lesional tracer uptake in different cancer types of at least 10 mm maximal diameter (for lymph nodes short axis) will be measured on PET/CT (expressed as standard uptake value (SUV).

  3. Feasibility and added value of 68GaNOTA-Anti-HER2 in neoadjuvant setting of breast carcinoma [ Time Frame: time of surgery following neo-adjuvant treatment (typically within 14 days following the second intervention) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Within-patient tumor heterogeneity for HER2 expression using PET/CT imaging [ Time Frame: 90 min post injection ]
    Within-patient tumor heterogeneity for HER2 expression, observed on 68GaNOTA-Anti-HER2 VHH1 PET/CT or biopsy analyses

  2. Immunogenicity [ Time Frame: prior to and between 60 and 365 days after the first injection ]
    Immunogenicity assessed on plasma samples obtained prior to injection of the IMP and obtained between 60 and 365 days after the (first) injection

  3. Histopathological results of biopsied lesions and correlation with PET/CT results [ Time Frame: max 28 days after the second PET/CT ]
    semi-quantitative score of HER2 expression using immunohistochemistry performed on biopsied/resected tissues if available

  4. Influence image-guide biopsy on patient management [ Time Frame: Within 3 months following the last intervention ]
    To determine in which relative number of patients, the patient management was altered after 68GaNOTA-Anti-HER2 VHH1 PET/CT and the subsequent optional biopsy
