Tidutamab was found to be well tolerated with a best overall response of stable disease in patients with advanced, well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors of pancreatic, gastrointestinal, lung and undetermined origin.
The combination of pembrolizumab (Keytruda) and irinotecan- or paclitaxel-based chemotherapy was not found to be effective in pretreated, biomarker-unselected patients with extrapulmonary poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas.
Prophylactic octreotide can be safely discontinued in patients with neuroendocrine tumors undergoing operation, as stopping its use has not been shown to increase the rate or duration of carcinoid crisis.
The combination of surufatinib and toripalimab demonstrated promising clinical activity with a manageable safety profile when used as second-line treatment for patients with advanced neuroendocrine carcinoma.
Surufatinib demonstrated strong antitumor activity along with a manageable safety profile in heavily treated US patients with progressive extrapancreatic neuroendocrine tumors or pancreatic NETs, according to interim phase 1 data.
The novel somatostatin analog for the Targeted Alpha-emitter Therapy 212Pb-DOTAMTATE has demonstrated early efficacy and a tolerable safety profile in a small cohort of patients with metastatic somatostatin receptor–expressing neuroendocrine tumors irrespective of location of the primary tumor.
Increasing the dosage of lanreotide autogel from every 28 days to every 14 days led to encouraging progression-free survival outcomes in patients with progressive pancreatic and midgut neuroendocrine tumors.
Investigators are evaluating the combination of telotristat ethyl and Lutathera with a goal to improve progression-free survival in patients with well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors in a randomized, phase 2 study that was highlighted during the 2020 NANETs Virtual Symposium.
