Accidental Injection of Unlabeled Lu-177 Caused Catastrophic Consequences in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumor Abstract #2838

Introduction: Since Lu-177 DOTATATE treatment is not approved in South Korea, patients with neuroendocrine tumors were sent to Germany and Malaysia for the treatment.
Aim(s): We report a radiation accident due to free Lu-177 injection to patients.
Materials and methods: In 12 Nov. 2018, 7.7~8.1 GBq of unlabeled Lu-177 were accidentally injected to five patients (1 male and 4 female) with neuroendocrine tumor from South Korea at a hospital in Malaysia. Radiation dose to patients was estimated using biokinetic model of lutetium based on the animal experiments in ICRP Publication 30.

#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.

#301 Medical and Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) with Somatostatin Analogues (SSA) in Well- and Moderately Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: PRRT is a treatment choice for inoperable or metastasized neuroendocrine tumors and this therapy seems more effective in the biochemical and volume control of disease than SSA alone.
