The Effect of PRRT on Health-Related Quality of Life in NET Patients: A Prospective Study Abstract #1825

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumour (NET) patients experience poor health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) is a promising treatment option although its impact on HRQOL is not well understood.
Aim(s): This prospective observational study examined the time course of HRQOL in a cohort of patients at the Department of Nuclear Medicine The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Adelaide.
Materials and methods: Patients received up to 4 Lutate inductions at 6-8-weekly intervals. The EORTC QLQ-C30 was administered prospectively at baseline and before each cycle. Mixed models for repeated measures examined relationships between time and HRQOL.

#1676 NETTER-1 Phase III Trial: Recent Findings on Quality of Life in Patients with Midgut Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Impairment in quality of life caused by tumor load and hormone-related symptoms is frequent in GEP-NET patients. In the Phase III NETTER-1 trial, patients with advanced, progressive midgut NETs were randomized to treatment with 177Lu-DOTATATE (177Lu; Lutathera®) or high-dose (60 mg) Octreotide LAR (Oct).
