Study Summary

This trial is testing a new way to image multiple myeloma lesions using PET/MR. The hope is that this will help with early detection and choosing the best treatment.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults over 18 with multiple myeloma, including those newly diagnosed or previously treated who are starting new therapy. Participants must be able to consent and have no metal implants that interfere with PET/MR imaging. They should not be pregnant/nursing and have a GFR of at least 60 mg/mL/1.73 m^2 if receiving MRI contrast.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial tests the use of a radioactive tracer called 64Cu-LLP2A in combination with PET/MR imaging to detect multiple myeloma lesions accurately. It aims to improve early disease detection and influence treatment choices by providing better molecular images of cancer.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include reactions related to the injection of the tracer (like discomfort or bruising), allergic reactions, exposure to radiation from imaging, and any risks associated with biopsy procedures if performed.

Study Objectives

Outcome measures can provide a clearer picture of what you can expect from a treatment.
Primary outcome measures
Feasibility of imaging MM patients with 64Cu-LLP2A-PET/MR as measured by average organ activity concentration of 64Cu-LLP2A
Feasibility of imaging MM patients with 64Cu-LLP2A-PET/MR as measured by image quality of 64Cu-LLP2A-PET/MR images
Feasibility of imaging MM patients with 64Cu-LLP2A-PET/MR as measured by lesion detection of 64Cu-LLP2A-PET/MR images
+2 more
Secondary outcome measures
Comparision of tumor burden (SUVmax) of 64Cu-LLP2A to clinical measurement of tumor burden as measured by the plasma cell fraction within the bone marrow
Comparison of tumor burden (SUVmax) of 64Cu-LLP2A to clinical stage
Comparison of tumor burden (SUVmax) of 64Cu-LLP2A to clinical tumor measurement of tumor burden as measured by M-protein of myeloma

Awards & Highlights

No Placebo-Only Group
All patients enrolled in this study will receive some form of active treatment.

Trial Design

2Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Group I: Cohort 2: Quantitative 64Cu-LLP2A ImagingExperimental Treatment7 Interventions
20 patients with MM will be recruited Subjects who enter on study in Cohort 2 will undergo a 60-min dynamic imaging over the known site of disease (OR pelvis and lower lumbar spine, if no site of disease is known). Following a simple DIXON MRI or low dose CT scan for attenuation correction, subjects will be injected with a dose of up to11 mCi of 64Cu-LLP2A and a list mode dynamic imaging acquisition will begin for a total of 60 mins. Following the dynamic study, or at the optimal time point determined from cohort 1 imaging, after a simple DIXON or low dose CT scan for body (top of the head to below the knees) attenuation correction, emission scans (2-5 min per bed position) will be performed
Group II: Cohort 1: Pilot 64Cu-LLP2A ImagingExperimental Treatment7 Interventions
16 adult individuals (6-8 patients with known MM; 6-10 healthy volunteers) All subjects who enter the study in Cohort 1 will be injected with up to 11 mCi of 64Cu-LLP2A and will undergo body imaging at least twice within 0-30 hrs following administration of 64Cu-LLP2A to study tracer biodistribution and calculate human dosimetry 6 subjects will also undergo dynamic study for 60 mins immediately after administration of 64Cu-LLP2A.
