BACKGROUND Everolimus, an oral inhibitor of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), has shown antitumor activity in patients with advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, in two phase 2 studies. We evaluated the agent in a prospective, randomized, phase 3 study. METHODS We randomly assigned 410 patients who had advanced, low-grade or intermediate-grade(More)
BACKGROUND Everolimus, an oral inhibitor of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), has shown antitumour activity in patients with advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours. We aimed to assess the combination of everolimus plus octreotide long-acting repeatable (LAR) in patients with low-grade or intermediate-grade neuroendocrine tumours (carcinoid). (More)

Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRNT) is a molecularly targeted radiation therapy involving the systemic administration of a radiolabelled peptide designed to target with high affinity and specificity receptors overexpressed on tumours. PRRNT employing the radiotagged somatostatin receptor agonists 90Y-DOTATOC ([90Y-DOTA0,Tyr3]-octreotide) or(More)
Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a form of cancer that differ from other neoplasia in that they synthesize, store, and secrete peptides, e.g., chromogranin A (CgA) and amines. A critical issue is late diagnosis due to failure to identify symptoms or to establish the biochemical diagnosis. We review here the utility of CgA measurement in NETs and describe(More)
BACKGROUND The discovery of somatostatin (SST) and the synthesis of a variety of analogues constituted a major therapeutic advance in the treatment of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine (carcinoid) tumours (GEP-NETs). They currently provide the most efficient treatment to achieve symptomatic relief and have recently been demonstrated to inhibit tumour(More)
BACKGROUND Effective systemic therapies for patients with advanced, progressive neuroendocrine tumours of the lung or gastrointestinal tract are scarce. We aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of everolimus compared with placebo in this patient population. METHODS In the randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 3 RADIANT-4 trial, adult(More)

CONTEXT Everolimus, an oral inhibitor of mammalian target of rapamycin, significantly prolongs progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET). Chromogranin A (CgA) and neuron-specific enolase (NSE) are considered general biomarkers of these tumors. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to evaluate the(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS The effect of octreotide plus interferon-alpha versus octreotide monotherapy on the primary study end points of time to treatment failure (progression, death, stop of study treatment) and long-term survival was investigated in patients with progressive metastatic neuroendocrine foregut (mainly pancreatic) and midgut tumors.
