Introduction: This pivotal, Phase 3, double-blind study of SU in patients (pts) with advanced, progressive pNETs met its primary endpoint with median progression-free survival of 11.4 months (mo) for SU vs 5.5 mo for placebo (PBO; HR=0.42; 95% CI 0.26–0.66; p<0.001). OS difference favored SU (HR=0.41; 95% CI 0.19–0.89; p=0.02). At 2 years after study closure, median OS was 33.0 mo for SU vs 26.7 mo for PBO (HR=0.71; 95% CI 0.47–1.09; p=0.115).
