This is a Phase I, first-in-human study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the [68Ga]Ga DOTA-5G and [177Lu]Lu DOTA-ABM-5G theranostic pair in patients with locally advanced or metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC).

Official Title

First-in-human Study of the Theranostic Pair [68Ga]Ga DOTA-5G and [177Lu]Lu DOTA-ABM-5G in Pancreatic Cancer


This is a Phase I, first-in-human study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the [68Ga]Ga DOTA-5G /[177Lu]Lu DOTA-ABM-5G theranostic pair in patients with locally advanced or metastatic pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). PET imaging using [68Ga]Ga DOTA-5G will be used to diagnose patients who are eligible for the [177Lu]Lu DOTA-ABM-5G. The overall purpose of this study is to identify the dose limiting toxicity (DLT) and recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of [177Lu]Lu DOTA-ABM-5G. A 3+3 study design in is proposed to identify the RP2D of [177Lu]Lu DOTA-ABM-5G. An expansion group will receive the RP2D in order to obtain initial estimates of response and additional information on safety of [177Lu]Lu DOTA-ABM-5G.

The hypotheses of this phase I study are that a) [68Ga]Ga DOTA-5G will detect lesions in patients with locally advanced or metastatic pancreas cancer b) the theranostic pair [68Ga]Ga DOTA-5G/ [177Lu]Lu DOTA-ABM-5G will be safe and well tolerated c) we will be able to identify a Recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D) for [177Lu]Lu DOTA-ABM-5G therapy to be used in subsequent Phase II trials.
