Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) overexpress CXCR4. We have previously shown that stimulation of CXCR4 by its ligand SDF-1 promotes the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and increases distant tumor spread. Ulocuplumab (Ulo) is a fully human IgG4 mAb designed to inhibit the binding of CXCR4 to SDF-1.
