AHCC Extract which Potentially Can Attenuate Immunological Toxicity in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors after Treatment with the Radioisotope Preparation (90Y-DOTA-TATE): An Initial Report Abstract #989

Introduction: Active hexose correlated compound (AHCC) is an alfa-glucan nutritional supplement made from the mycelia of Lentinula edodes mushroom. Human clinical studies have shown that AHCC significantly improves immune response, increases normal NK cell activity and enhances macrophage and T‑cell activity.
Aim(s): To assess the efficacy of AHCC to protect the immunological system in neuroendocrine tumor (NET) patients after 90Y-DOTA-TATE therapy.
Materials and methods: We evaluated three patients with confirmed NETs. Patients were treated with four doses of 90Y-DOTA-TATE (3.7 GBq/m2 /dose) in 8-10 week intervals (median dose 14,8 Gbq/m2 per patient). Control computed tomography and PET/CT with somatostatin analog 68Ga-DOTA-TATE were conducted three months after the last dose of 90Y-DOTA-TATE. Patients took AHCC in the amount of 3 × 2 g daily, 40 min before meals. Immunological toxicity has been compared with nine patients summarised by Sierra study. In the Italian group, the average dose of 90Y-DOTA-TOC was 5.5 GBq per patient.

#1505 A Blood-Based Multi-Transcript Test, the NETest, Predicts and Defines PRRT Efficacy in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) is an effective NET treatment. Predicting response is based on somatostatin receptor expression and efficacy evaluated by RECIST criteria. Both have limited accuracy. The NETest measures tumor activity in blood and correlates cell signaling and metabolism directly with tumor activity.
