Study Title

Retrospective Analysis of 68Ga-PSMA-PET in Patients With Prostate Cancer: Experience From Brazil (LACOG pPR015)

Study Details


Gallium-68-prostate-specific membrane antigen (68Ga-PSMA) positron emission tomography (PET) has been increasingly used in the management of PCa in Brazil. Thus, the detection of metastatic lesions is improved over traditional methods e.g. MRI and the diagnosis of mCSPC patients has been proportionally increasing. Due to a lack of guidelines and clinical trials including 68Ga-PSMA-PET imaging, the management of these patients is extrapolated from data based on conventional imaging. Treatment decision and duration of treatment for mCSPC patients based on 68Ga-PSMA-PET imaging is currently unknown. 68Ga-PSMA-PET allows a diagnosis of a different set of low volume oligo-metastatic prostate cancer patients. Based on that, a new gap has been built up, since there are no standards of how those patients are managed and how they respond to conventional therapies, to metastasis direct therapy or even if they could be spared of any treatment, reducing costs and toxicities. This patient population has not been included in clinical trials and its critical to generate information on the diagnosis, treatment and outcome of these patients in clinical practice.
