Introduction: SSA represent the standard of care for controlling symptoms of patients with functional GEP-NEN and have anti-proliferative effects. Molecular targeted therapies (MTT) against angiogenesis resulted in an increased PFS, however, due to primary and acquired resistance to MTT, the impact on OS remains unclear. One of the most pivotal questions, whether combining SSA with novel MTT will result in enhanced anti-proliferative activity compared to monotherapy treatment, are lacking.
