Study Objectives

This trial is evaluating whether 64Cu-DOTA-ECLIi will improve 4 primary outcomes in patients with Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma (Ductal Adenocarcinoma). Measurement will happen over the course of Completion of first scan (day 1).

Month 2
Evaluate whether tumor take of 64Cu-DOTA-ECL1i post therapy correlates with CCR2 expression and is predictive of response to therapy as measured by visual tumor uptake on 64Cu-DOTA-ECL1i images
Month 2
Evaluate if tumor take of 64Cu-DOTA-ECL1i is predictive of response to CCR2-directed therapy measured by comparison of SUVmax at imaging prior to the start of CCR2 directed therapy and SUVmax at imaging performed after 2 cycles of CCR2 directed therapy
Day 1
Cohort 1b only: Evaluate whether tumor uptake of 64Cu-DOTA-ECL1i prior to therapy predicts response to standard of care chemotherapy as measured by tumor SUVmax
Determine whether 64Cu-DOTA-ECL1i detects CCR2 expression in PDAC tumors as measured by direct comparison of visual tumor uptake on 64Cu-DOTA-ECL1i images to CCR2 measurements in surgical specimens

Not currently pregnant or nursing: Subject must be surgically sterile (has had a documented bilateral oophorectomy and/or documented hysterectomy), post-menopausal (cessation of menses for more than 1 year), non-lactating, or of childbearing potential for whom a urine pregnancy test (with the test performed within the 24 hour period immediately prior to administration of 64Cu-DOTA-ECL1i) is negative

Patient Q&A Section

What are common treatments for pancreatic adenocarcinoma (ductal adenocarcinoma)?

"Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas are treated by major surgical techniques such as distal pancreatectomy, local surgery, and neoadjuvant chemotherapy in selected patients. New surgical techniques such as subserosal dissection and robot-assisted hepaticoduodenectomy might be more efficient in selected patients." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What causes pancreatic adenocarcinoma (ductal adenocarcinoma)?

"It appears that this condition is not just a single entity, but a group of conditions which are caused, or worsened, by a variety of different factors. For most ductal adenocarcinoma patients, the cancer appears to have formed for a long time. Many patients with ductal adenocarcinoma develop the condition as a result of a previous history of other cancers, including liver and colon, and in less common circumstances there may be a link between genetics, toxins, and other environmental insults." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Have there been other clinical trials involving 64cu-dota-eclii?

"There are more than one million treatments annually for [colorectal cancer](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/colorectal-cancer) in Ontario. Of these, approximately 45,000 involve chemotherapy and over 5% involve 64Cu-DOTA-eclii. No clinical trial was found concerning 64Cu-DOTA-eclii treatment of patients with colorectal cancer. Until there is a better understanding of colorectal cancer, our present knowledge of therapy for cancer is largely based on research done using other modes of imaging. Clinical trials in this area are needed." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What is the average age someone gets pancreatic adenocarcinoma (ductal adenocarcinoma)?

"This is the first study to produce a complete analysis of age at the time of diagnosis for pd-pCRM. Results from a recent paper of this study demonstrate that there is no consensus among surgeons or pathologists, whether or not pd-pCRM should be regarded as a "serous" or a non-serous tumor. This fact, and the lack of the consensus as to "serous" versus non-serous pd-pCRM, is probably the most important reason why pd-pCRM behaves differently than previously thought. The data also show that p-PD-pCRM is a disease of the very old." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the latest developments in 64cu-dota-eclii for therapeutic use?

"The majority of the 64Cu-dota-eclii treatment centers in Germany have shifted from ECLIT alone to BEACT-2, the BEACH-2/EART trial comparing ECLIT with standard chemoimmunotherapy. In many studies, the chemotherapy-related death rate is now markedly reduced in BEACT-2 compared to ECLIT. In the following years, more chemotherapy regimens, in particular the TACE approach, will be investigated further, which might result in more efficient treatment, which can result in much improved survival rates in advanced stages of carcinoma of the pancreas." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Has 64cu-dota-eclii proven to be more effective than a placebo?

"Results from a recent clinical trial has demonstrated that 64Cu-dota-eclii, a single radioembolization treatment of pancreatic adenocarcinoma, is an effective treatment. It is associated with low rates of serious toxicities, and allows for the administration of systemic therapy for patients with unresectable pancreatic adenocarcinoma, by a procedure that is easy and safe for patients to undergo. Therefore, 64Cu-dota-eclii should be investigated for further investigations." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is the latest research for pancreatic adenocarcinoma (ductal adenocarcinoma)?

"The treatment of pancreatic cancer in the 21st century is mainly centered on the use of newer technologies and more efficient drugs. The survival rate for pancreatic cancer patients in developed countries has improved considerably recently. However, the median survival period remains in the 1- to 2-year range when compared to the previous decades. There is an urgent need to find a more effective treatment approach for pancreatic cancer. The development of more effective treatments for pancreatic cancer is a goal that deserves our attention and it will benefit all individuals with this rare tumor." - Anonymous Online Contributor
