Introduction: Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) represent a group of rare neoplasms, derived mainly from enterochromaffine cells. Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is a calcitonin-producing neuroendocrine tumor arising from the parafollicular C-cells. SI-NETs as well as MTCs are known for their poor response to standard therapy. Therefore, there is a substantial need to establish new therapeutic options in the clinical treatment of these tumors.
