Effect of Everolimus + Octreotide LAR Treatment on 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid Levels in Patients With Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumors: Phase III RADIANT-2 Study Results Abstract #325

Introduction: Urinary 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) is a metabolite and surrogate measure of plasma serotonin, an important cause of carcinoid syndrome in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET).
Aim(s): To characterize 5-HIAA response to treatment with everolimus and octreotide LAR in pts with advanced NET in the phase III RADIANT-2 trial.
Materials and methods: Pts with advanced NET received octreotide LAR (30mg IM q28 days) + everolimus 10mg daily (E+O) or placebo (P+O). 5-HIAA was measured at baseline and, if elevated (>ULN), measured on day one of each cycle. Incidence of 5-HIAA response (normalization or =50% reduction) was analyzed. Change from baseline over time was analyzed using the geometric mean.

#2833 Surgical Correction of Carcinoid Heart Disease Improves Liver Function and 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid Levels
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours of the gastrointestinal tract cause carcinoid syndrome and carcinoid heart disease. These tumours secrete serotonin, which can bind to heart valves and cause fibrosis and valve incompetence. Most cases involve the tricuspid valve +/- pulmonary valve. Medical management comprises diuretics for fluid overload and somatostatin analogues to reduce circulating serotonin. Definitive treatment is heart-valve replacement surgery which improves exercise tolerance but has high perioperative mortality. We have previously reported that valve-replacement surgery can reduce 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) levels, reflecting a decline in hormone activity.

Introduction: In patients with bronchopulmonary or gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) the mTOR inhibitor everolimus may prolong progression-free survival (PFS). However, this is countered by potentially significant toxicity.
