#13 Neoadjuvant peptide receptor radionuclide therapy for an inoperable neuroendocrine pancreatic carcinoma
Introduction: Pancreatic endocrine tumors (pNETs) are rare but are among the most common neuroendocrine neoplasms of the abdomen. At diagnosis, many of them are already advanced and difficult to treat.

#80 Metastatic growth hormone secreting pituitary carcinoma treated with peptide receptor radionuclide therapy
Introduction: Pituitary carcinoma (PC) is an extremely rare condition defined by the presence of adenohypophyseal neoplastic tissue outside the pituitary. Clinical experience regarding diagnosis, management and prognosis of PC is very limited. Growth hormone (GH) secreting PC is even rarer and represents a particular challenge to clinical practice. Therapeutic modalities utilized to treat PC include surgery, radiation, hormonal therapy, and cytotoxic drugs. Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) is an emerging therapeutic modality that involves the targeted delivery of an ablative dose of radiolabelled somatostatin analog. PRRT has been applied to various neuroendocrine tumors and results in prolonged survival and enhanced quality of life. As yet, this therapy has not been applied to malignant pituitary tumors.

#156 Toxicity, response and survival analyses of Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) in treatment refractory metastatic thyroid cancer using Yttrium-90 and Lutetium-177 Labeled somatostatin analogs
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) represents about 3-16% of thyroid cancer. After first line treatment, therapeutic options for locally recurrent or metastasizing tumors include repeated surgery, whenever possible. Doxorubicin containing chemotherapy regimens in iodine-nonavid differentiated thyroid cancer have poor efficacy.

#161 Low Dose Multiple Cycle (LD/MT) Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy: a new concept for the treatment of well-differentiated metastatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: It has been shown experimentally that low dose radiation can effectively kill slow growing cancer cells. Also, external beam radiation therapy applies a fractionated delivery of radiation dose to reduce toxicity with equal or even better therapeutic efficacy.

#236 Very Long-term Follow-up (> 5 years) of Renal Function of Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients Treated with Five or More Cycles of Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRNT)
Introduction: Nephrotoxicity is one of the primary concerns in neuroendocrine tumor (NET) patients (pts.) treated with peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRNT).

#411 Efficacy of Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy Treatment with 177Ludotatate in Advanced Well-Differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy with 177Lu-DOTATATE (177Lu-PRRT) has shown activity against advanced well-differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (P-NET) in previous phase I/II studies.

#450 Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy for Neuroendocrine Tumors in Germany: First Results of a Multiinstitutional Cancer Registry
Introduction: Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy is an effective treatment option for patients with well-differentiated somatostatin receptor expressing neuroendocrine tumors. However, published data results mainly from retrospective monocentric studies.

#567 Efficacy of Combined Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy and Radiofrequency Ablation for the Management of Hepatic Metastases of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Hepatic metastases significantly affect the overall prognosis and quality of life in patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP-NET). Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is one of the important local ablative strategies for hepatic metastases. Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRNT) is a well-established therapeutic modality for metastatic NET.

#571 Safety and Efficacy of Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy after Liver Transplantation in Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Liver transplantation is an important option for patients of neuroendocrine tumors (NET) with metastases limited to the liver. Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRNT) is effective in the management of metastatic NET.

#745 Surgery after Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) for Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) with Metastatic Abdominal Localizations.
Introduction: There are only few case reports about surgery in patients affected by gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (GEP-NET) patients previously underwent peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT).
