In addition to the NETTER1 trial presented at the European Cancer Congress, two other phase 3 NET clinical trials presented their results.

Everolimus conferred a statistically significant and clinically meaningful PFS benefit with an acceptable safety profile in patients with advanced, progressive neuroendocrine tumors of the lung or gastrointestinal region, according to phase 3 trial results (Radiant4). 

On October 20, 2015 the Society for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging and the NorCal CarciNET Community hosted a webinar on PRRT featuring Dr. Ed Wolin and Dr. Eric Mittra. NorCal CarciNET's Josh Mailman facilitated the ensuing question and answer session. Over 95 participated in the webinar which can be viewed below. In addition the slides that were used are available by clicking here. Guidelines for the use of PRRT are avialble from the website.

The results from the first large scale randomized control trial of PRRT were released today in Vienna, Austria showing increased progression free survival compared to high dose octreotide LAR.

PRRT while available in many parts of the world has not yet been approved for use pending prospective randomized clinical trails (RCT). Having a positive RCT for PRRT will greatly expand access and availability to PRRT around the world. Click here to download the full release.
