99mTc-HFAPI SPECT/CT in Pulmonary Fibrosis
This prospective study will investigate the potential usefulness of 99mTc labeled FAPI SPECT/CT in the diagnosis, treatment response assessment, and follow-up of pulmonary fibrosis.
Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years - 90 Years|
- - suspected or confirmed pulmonary fibrosis patients; - signed written consent.
- - pregnancy; - breastfeeding; - known allergy against FAPI.
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis refers to a specific form of chronic fibrous interstitial pneumonia that occurs spontaneously, limited to the lung, and shows features of usual interstitial pneumonia on high resolution computed tomography and histological examination. Radionuclide labeled FAPI has been developed as a new tracer for tumor and inflammatory lesions imaging. Recent studies have shown that FAPI PET/CT imaging is a promising new imaging method for pulmonary fibrosis. HFAPI is obtained by conjugating 99mTc-chelator moiety (6-hydrazinonicotinamide, HYNIC) with FAP targeting moiety. The aim of this study is to investigate the location and extent of 99mTc labeled FAPI tracer (99mTc-HFAPI) in normal and fibrotic lung tissue of patients with pulmonary fibrosis, and to explore the clinical significance of 99mTc-HFAPI SPECT/CT in the diagnosis, treatment response evaluation and follow-up of pulmonary fibrosis.
Experimental: Patients diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis
Patients of Pulmonary Fibrosis SPECT/CT imaging: The patients were subcutaneously injected with 99mTc-HFAPI and underwent SPECT/CT imaging.
Drug: - 99mTc-HFAPI
Each patient receive a intravenous injection of 99mTc-HFAPI, and undergo SPECT/CT scan within specified time.
