Introduction: Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy with 177Lu-DOTATATE is gaining acceptance as safe and effective therapy for inoperable neuroendocrine tumors (NET). A radiosensitizing chemotherapeutic drug -capecitabine, the prodrug of 5-Flourouracil, is included in the protocol to further enhance therapeutic efficacy.

Introduction: Radiopeptide therapy using a somatostatin analogue labeled with alpha emitters Actinium 225 and Bismuth 213 DOTATOC is a novel therapeutic option in metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET), with few alternative therapeutic options for patients with beta refractory disease. We report the first experience with 213Bi and Ac225 DOTATOC targeted alpha therapy (TAT) in treatment of well differentiated metastatic NETs at a tertiary care hospital in India.
