Comparison of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT for Assessment of Response to Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy after 2 and 4 Cycles of 177Lu-DOTATATE: Preliminary Single Academic Center Experience Abstract #2897

Introduction: Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) usually leads to stable rather than decreased lesion size in neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), therefore RECIST criteria are not used to assess early response to treatment.
Aim(s): Here we report a comparison of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT done after 2 and 4 cycles of PRRT to understand early NET response to PRRT, which may allow physicians to make appropriate treatment adjustments.
Materials and methods: 42 patients (37-80 year-old, mean ± SD: 60.5 ± 10.9) with progressive metastatic NET received at least one cycle of 177Lu-DOTATATE between May 2018 and May 2019 at our institution. 30 patients completed all 4 cycles of PRRT. 19 patients had 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT before the first infusion (pretherapy PET #1), after the second infusion (interim PET #2) and after the fourth infusion (posttherapy PET #3). Response to PRRT was compared between interim PET and posttherapy PET.

#2723 Achieving Objective Response in Treatment of Non-Resectable Neuroendocrine Tumors Does Not Predict Longer Time to Progression Compared to Achieving Stable Disease
Introduction: There are several treatment modalities for unresectable neuroendocrine tumors. Traditionally the goal of these treatments are to reduce the tumor load; objective response (OR). Less emphasis has been put on inducing the tumors to stop growing without reduction in total tumor load; stable disease (SD).

Introduction: The liver is the most commonly affected organ in metastatic neuroendocrine disease and is the most incriminating factor for patient survival. Additional treatment of liver disease with radioembolization may improve outcome in NET patients with bulky residual liver disease after PRRT.

Introduction: Lanreotide is a long-acting somatostatin analogue with proven antitumor effect against metastatic, well-differentiated gastroenteropancreatic-neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs). Ga-68-DOTATOC PET/CT is a sensitive imaging technique for NETs by targeting somatostatin receptors.

#2782 Clinical Efficacy of Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy in Patients with Neuroendocrine Neoplasm
Introduction: Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) is an established treatment of metastatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) with positive effects on both progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS). Only a few previous studies have investigated the effect of a second series and hence a retreatment with PRRT.
