Combined treatment of rapidly progressing neuroendocrine tumors by transcatheter arterial chemoembolisation of the liver and peptide-receptor radiotherapy is save and effective. Report of thirty consecutive patients Abstract #27

Introduction: Patients with rapidly progressing neuroendocrine tumors presenting with high tumor load and/or severe clinical syndromes are clinically challenging and with limited life expectany. Peptide receptor radiotherapy (PRRT) and transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) have demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors. However, there are no reports that both therapies have been applied in combination.
Aim(s): To find out whether a combined treatment of PRRT and TACE is safe and effective.
Materials and methods: We treated thirty consecutive patients (19 male and 11 female, mean age 55.2) years with rapidly progressing neuroendorine tumors with high tumor load or severe functional syndromes by sequential PRRT and TACE.

Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) represents about 3-16% of thyroid cancer. After first line treatment, therapeutic options for locally recurrent or metastasizing tumors include repeated surgery, whenever possible. Doxorubicin containing chemotherapy regimens in iodine-nonavid differentiated thyroid cancer have poor efficacy.

#2291 Somatostatin Analogs and mTOR Inhibitors as Radioprotectors or Radiosensitizers in Neuroendocrine Tumor Cells
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) express somatostatin receptors that are currently utilized for diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. For peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT), somatostatin analogs are coupled to radionuclides like 90Y or 177Lu, which after injection are bound and taken up specifically by NETs. One hypothesis potentially explaining the discrepancies between expected result and observed outcome of PRRT might be that somatostatin analogs induce a G1 arrest in NET cells, thereby rendering them radioresistant.

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.
