Extrahepatic 68Ga-DOTATATE-Avid Tumor Volume and Serum Chromogranin A Predict Short-Term Outcome of 177Lu-DOTATATE in Late-Stage Metastatic Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #2866

Introduction: 177Lu-DOTATATE is an effective therapy for somatostatin receptor-positive neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Often enough 177Lu-DOTATATE is used as the last treatment resort in advanced NET.
Aim(s): We investigated the value of pre-therapy 68Ga-DOTATATE PET and serum Chromogranin A (ChgA) in predicting short-term progression free survival (PFS).
Materials and methods: We retrospectively reviewed 57 patients (62.4 ± 11.2 years) who received at least one dose of 177Lu-DOTATATE between Dec. 2016 and May 2019 at our institution. 45 patients with metastatic gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) had a pre-therapy 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT or PET/MR. Pre-therapy serum ChgA level was available in 36 patients. Quantitative image analysis of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET was performed using MIM software. Extrahepatic and total 68Ga-DOTATATE avid tumor volumes (DATV) were measured and dichotomized into larger and smaller groups (130 and 1000 ml as threshold respectively). ChgA was dichotomized into higher and lower groups using 10000 ng/mL as the threshold. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis was performed.

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.

Introduction: Most gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors (GI-NETs) involve the small intestine (38%) and about 50% of patients present with regional or distant metastases at time of diagnosis [2]. 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT provides improved sensitivity and specificity compared to traditional nuclear medicine techniques [4]. However, there is relatively less data comparing performance of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT with contrast-enhanced CT (CECT).
