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.

#889 Delayed Haematological Toxicity in Patients Treated with 177Lu-octreotate Peptide Receptor Radiotherapy (PRRT) for Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: PRRT is associated with a high tumor control rate and early toxicity seems acceptable (haematological grade 3-4 toxicity: 11.3%). Long-term monitoring of haematological toxicity is unavailable.

#1228 Measurement of Blood Gene Transcripts Defines PRRT Therapeutic Efficacy
Introduction: PRRT is an effective therapy for NETs since the majority over-express SSRs. Typically, well or moderately differentiated NETs (G1/G2) are treated. Imaging and CgA are used to evaluate response but both RECIST criteria and CgA have limitations.

#1879 A Hybrid Clinical Molecular Nomogram Accurately Predicts Survival in PRRT Treated GEP-NETs
Introduction: Clinical assessment has limited prognostic ability. Mathematical tools –nomograms- that incorporate multiple parameters are more effective. Novel transcriptomic data has added value in defining NET biology in tissue and blood. A blood multigene expression analysis test is effective as a molecular prognostic marker for PFS.

#101 Chronic Complications of Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT)- A Single Center Experience
Introduction: In the last decade, a new treatment modality, peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PPRT), has been introduced for gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (GEPNET) patients with non-resectable or progressive disease. PRRT has been associated with several complications, including bone marrow suppression, renal toxicity and hepatic damage.
