68Ga-FAPI superior to 18F-FDG in Advanced Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer
Cancer operates insidiously, shaping a distinct microenvironment even before the emergence of actual cancer cells. This inherent challenge makes crucial early detection difficult. Enter the groundbreaking 'tracer,' designed to detect the FAP alpha receptor on cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAF). This innovative approach unveils the early fingerprints of cancer, akin to fingerprint powder, facilitating early diagnosis that significantly enhances therapeutic decision-making, as evidenced by the latest study.
In another noteworthy study, 68Ga-FAPI PET/CT proves its superiority over the conventional 18F-FDG in oncological diagnostics, especially for detecting metastases and local malignancy recurrence in advanced metastatic pancreatic cancer. The scans exhibit higher lesion intensity (SUV), underscoring the effectiveness of FAPI in targeting the microenvironment of solid tumors prevalent in sarcomas, breast, colon, and pancreatic cancers. Precise diagnostics translates to improved therapy decisions. Our clinic offers 68Ga-FAPI; contact us for a consultation and appointment.
