SOMscan: Towards a Ga-68-labeled Pan-Somatostatin PET Imaging Probe Based on SOM230 (Pasireotide) Abstract #447

Introduction: The somatostatin receptor subtype sst2 is largely expressed on neuroendocrine tumors. However, current clinical studies indicate that the subtypes sst1, 3, 5 are of substantial relevance as well.
Aim(s): We intend to develop a Ga-68-PET tracer covering a broad spectrum of ssts for clinical application.
Materials and methods: The sst1, 2, 3, 5 highly specific SOM230 (Pasireotide) was coupled with the chelators DOTA or NODAGA and labeled with Ga-68. We investigated the tracers’ sst-subtype binding and internalization profiles in vitro and the biodistribution and tumor uptake by microPET studies in hsst2- and hsst5-tumor xenografts.

#26 Molecular imaging of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours with Ga-68 DOTANOC PET/CT and correlation with an immunhistochemical quantification of somatostatin receptors using novel monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies
Introduction: Receptor PET/CT with somatostatin analogues marked with Gallium-68 (SMS-R-PET/CT) is currently the golden standard in diagnosing gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET), which are known for an overexpression of somatostatin receptors (SSTRs).
