Trial Purpose and Description

This is a Phase 1, open-label study in healthy adult participants and participants with IPF to evaluate 18F-BMS-986327, a novel positron-emitting LPA1 binding tracer, for measurement of available LPA1. The study will include up to 20 completed participants across the 3 parts listed below. All participants will undergo PET-CT scanning with 18F BMS 986327. Part 1 will be initiated first; however, individual study parts are not required to be performed sequentially.

Part 1 (Safety Study): 3 to 5 evaluable (defined as having readable PET-CT images) healthy adult participants or participants with IPF will complete a whole-body dynamic PET-CT scan after a bolus intravenous (IV) injection of 18F-BMS-986327 to confirm tracer safety, image acquisition window, determine radiation dosimetry of the administered radiotracer, and assess optimal imaging time. A minimum of 2 healthy participants will complete Part 1 prior to scanning any participants with IPF.

Part 2 (Test-Retest Study): A group of 6 to 10 evaluable healthy adult participants or participants with IPF will complete two PET-CT scans with IV bolus administration of 18F-BMS-986327, separated by at least 24 hours and within 7 days of one another to determine the binding characteristics under test and retest conditions and to assess the repeatability of binding parameters, ie, within-subject variability. At least 3 participants with IPF will complete Part 2. A 1- to 7-day window is highly recommended for the re-test scan, but in the event of unexpected cancellations, the retest scan may occur no later than 4 weeks after the test scan.

Part 3 (Distribution in Participants with IPF): A group of 3 to 5 evaluable participants with IPF will complete a PET-CT scan with a single IV bolus injection of 18F-BMS-986327 to assess tracer whole body biodistribution and signal retention in the lung. Part 3 may be fulfilled by participants with IPF who complete Part 1 or Part 2 of the study.
