Correlation of 16α-[18F]Fluoro-17β-estradiol PET Imaging With ESR1 Mutation

2018-06-11 01:09:11 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The propose of this prospective study focuses on the role of [18F]FES PET imaging in patients with breast cancer who might receive or are receiving hormone therapy. First, we will develop and optimize the radiosynthesis and quality control tests of [18F]FES in conditions that meet good manufacturing practice (GMP) requirements. Secondly, patients with or without metastatic breast cancer will be enrolled for the conduction of human study. [18F]FES PET imaging will be performed on patients before the initiation of hormone therapy to predict the prognosis and therapeutic response to hormone therapy. The [18F]FES PET results will be compared with ER status obtained by immunohistochemical (IHC) staining on surgically obtained specimens. Moreover, in patients with progression of metastatic disease, the [18F]FES PET will be correlated with ESR1 gene mutation, which is one of the mechanisms for resistance to hormone therapy.

Description

Breast cancer is the fourth leading cancer death both in female and general population in Taiwan. Breast cancer is a cancer with heterogeneous subtypes, based on gene expression profiles and clinicopathological characteristics. Estrogen receptors (ER) expression of breast cancer has significant prognostic values and determines candidate patients for hormone therapy in both adjuvant and metastatic situations. However, ER expression may be variable within the regions of the tumor or discordant between primary and metastatic lesions. Furthermore, ER expression can change over time along the progression of the disease. Many patients receiving hormone therapy finally develop resistance to hormone therapy despite of ER positive result on prior pathologic specimens. Recently, the mutation of ER-related gene ESR1 has been reported to be associated with the mechanism of development of endocrine resistance.

To assist breast cancer treatment, accurate method for patient selection and response prediction to endocrine and other targeted therapy are required. 16α-[18F]fluoro-17β-estradiol ([18F]FES) is currently the only ER-targeted PET agent validated in previous clinical trials. With the development of [18F]FES PET imaging, the status of ER expression could be detected ER status of tumor cell in vivo without the need of an invasive biopsies.

The propose of this prospective study focuses on the role of [18F]FES PET imaging in patients with breast cancer who might receive or are receiving hormone therapy. First, we will develop and optimize the radiosynthesis and quality control tests of [18F]FES in conditions that meet good manufacturing practice (GMP) requirements. Secondly, patients with or without metastatic breast cancer will be enrolled for the conduction of human study. [18F]FES PET imaging will be performed on patients before the initiation of hormone therapy to predict the prognosis and therapeutic response to hormone therapy. The [18F]FES PET results will be compared with ER status obtained by immunohistochemical (IHC) staining on surgically obtained specimens. Moreover, in patients with progression of metastatic disease, the [18F]FES PET will be correlated with ESR1 gene mutation, which is one of the mechanisms for resistance to hormone therapy.

[18F]FES PET is proposed to be served as an interval assessment tool to evaluate the dynamic changes of ER status in patients receiving hormone therapy. Also, the results of this study will demonstrate the impact of [18F]FES PET as a non-invasive tool on decision making of hormone therapy of breast cancer in addition to IHC stain and ESR1 mutation genetic test. After finishing this project, the non-invasive [18F]FES PET imaging will be proved the potential for the improvement of personalized cancer care.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)

Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
