An Investigational Scan (Me-4FDG PET/CT) for the Detection of Sodium-Glucose Transport for Early Diagnosis of Lung Cancer

About

Brief Summary

The phase I/II trial assess the safety and efficacy of a new positron emission tomography (PET) test for early diagnosis of lung cancer. This study uses PET and Me-4FDG new glucose tracer (alpha-methyl-4-deoxy-4-[(18)F]fluoro-D-glucopyranoside) designed specifically to determine glucose update into cells in the body. PET is a non-invasive imaging method used to detect cancer in patient. Me4FDG is a radioactive glucose tracer used in PET to locate cells in the body taking up glucose by SGLT2. SLGT2 is a sodium glucose transport protein that accumulates glucose in some cells, e.g. kidney cells and tumors. This study may help researcher determine how effective PET with ME4FDG tracer works in detecting lung cancer.

Healthy Volunteers
No
Minimum Age
18 Years
Maximum Age
N/A

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age > 18 years
  • Lung nodule >= 1 cm visualized by CT imaging
  • CANCER ARM: Pathologically confirmed lung adenocarcinoma. For patients who are surgical candidates, the pathologic report on the surgical specimen will confirm the diagnosis. For patients who are not surgical candidates, the enrollment will be contingent upon a pathologic diagnosis of lung cancer obtained by needle biopsy
  • BENIGN ARM: Lung nodules considered to be clinically benign, according to the Guidelines for Management of Incidental Pulmonary Nodules from the Fleischner Society. Will consider "benign" the nodules with a lung-RADS score of 1-3

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pregnancy
  • Diagnosis of diabetes
  • Current treatment with SGLT2 inhibitors or metformin
