18F-DCFPyL PET/CT in Men with Prostate Cancer


18F-DCFPyL PET/CT in Men with Prostate Cancer

The purpose of this study is to see if [18F]DCFPyL (PyL) PET/CT scans are able
to find prostate cancer tumors. PyL is a radioactive drug (tracer) that targets
prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA). Because PSMA is a protein found
mostly on the surface of prostate cancer cells, we are testing to see if PyL
will be able to correctly identify prostate cancer. We will also see if we can
detect prostate cancer tumor DNA (ctDNA) and cell particles (exosomes) in the
blood. We hope that this may one day lead to better tests to evaluate patients
with prostate cancer.
