Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Men with metastatic castrate resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), who have disease demonstrated by PSMA (prostate specific membrane antigen) PET/CT scan will, within 2 weeks of their positive PSMA PET/CT scan, each have a single Exendin PET/CT scan to see whether the Exendin PET/CT scanning can detect mCRPC.

Details of the Exendin PET/CT scan are as follows.
Radiopharmaceutical: [68Ga]-DOTA-Exendin4.
Activity: 68Ga: 2.6 MBq/kg, maximum peptide administered 20ug/patient
Injected: Intravenously over 30 seconds via a peripheral cannula.
Patient status prior to injection: Well hydrated (orally) and not fasting, and having had baseline finger prick blood sugar confirming not hypoglycaemic and 2nd peripheral cannula in situ in case intravenous glucose is required after injection to maintain blood glucose.
Monitoring: Finger prick blood glucose measurements
Scan Acquisition: At least 60 minutes after injection and having voided prior to scanning.
Scanning location: Department of Cancer Imaging in a major cancer hospital
Scan supervision: Nuclear physician

Summary
Brief summary
Exendin PET scans are special nuclear medicine imaging scans. These scans can detect cancers whose cells have a chemical, called the GLP1 receptor, on their surfaces. However, we are unaware of any reports of the use of Exendin PET scanning in prostate cancer. The purpose of this study is to determine if prostate cancer can be detected by Exendin PET scans.

Who is it for?

You may only be eligible for this study if you have metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer and have already been identified as potentially suitable for the study by our research team.

Study details
The study will assess whether PET scans using the chemical called Exendin can detect metastatic prostate cancer. Participants will have had a PET scan using the chemical PSMA (which is the usual type of PET scan used to detect prostate cancer) within the preceding 2 weeks. They will then have a single Exendin PET/CT scan at a major hospital. The procedure will involve:
a) Injecting the study chemical (called [68Ga]-DOTA-Exendin) into an arm vein.
b) Finger prick glucose testing to confirm participant blood sugar levels.
c) An Exendin PET scan 60 minutes after the chemical injection.

We hope this will demonstrate that prostate cancers can be detected by Exendin PET scans. If we can demonstrate that, we will have confirmed that prostate cancers bear GLP1 receptor.
