Recent progress in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
Recent progress in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors Positive efficacy with 177Lu-octreotate in PanNET: Phase II OCLURANDOM Five systemic therapeutic options are currently approved for advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNET): Streptozotocine-based chemotherapy, everolimus, sunitinib, lanreotide, and PRRT with 177Lu-DOTA-octreotate (OCLU).
Latest developments in prostate cancer treatment
Latest developments in prostate cancer treatment Favorable complementary mechanisms: 223RaCl2 followed by 177Lu-PSMA (RALU) The positive efficacy and safety data of 177Lu-PSMA-617 in the treatment of mCRPC patients from the Lu-PSMA and VISION trials led to its FDA approval and designation as a breakthrough therapy for later lines of mCRPC treatment [1,2].
Neuroendocrine tumor imaging updates
Neuroendocrine tumor imaging updates Little impact of interim PET/CT staging during PRRT for NETs Guideline recommendations for peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) using 177Lu- DOTA-0-Tyr3-Octreotate (DOTATATE) in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) include 3-5 cycles with a dose ranging from 5.5-7.4 GBq per cycle with 6-12 weeks intervals .
