Interim Results on the Influence of Lanreotide on Uptake of [68Ga]-DOTATATE in Patients with Metastatic or Unresectable NET: No Evidence for Discontinuation of Lanreotide before [68Ga]-DOTATATE PET/CT Abstract #1341

Introduction: Somatostatin receptor imaging with [68Ga]-DOTATATE PET/CT has become common practice in patients with NET. Current guidelines recommend discontinuing treatment with SSAs before obtaining a [68Ga]-DOTATATE PET/CT scan. The assumption is that unlabeled somatostatin may lower the detectability of lesions.
Aim(s): To investigate the influence of lanreotide on the uptake of [68Ga]-DOTATATE in tumor- and normal tissue.
Materials and methods: 34 patients with metastatic/unresectable NET being treated with lanreotide and scheduled for [68Ga]-DOTATATE PET/CT are included. The PET/CT scan is made on the day before and the day after lanreotide injection in each patient. [68Ga]-DOTATATE uptake in the primary tumor, metastases, and normal tissue are quantified (SUVmax, mean, peak).

#1700 Distribution of 68Ga-HA-DOTATATE and 68Ga-DOTATATE in 343 Patients: Not the Same after All
Introduction: For the detection of neuroendocrine tumors, 68Ga-DOTATATE was developed but its use is restricted. This led to the development of 68Ga-HA-DOTATATE. In the literature, they are described as having comparable distributions.

#3001 Early Response Assessment for Prediction of Overall Survival after Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy
Introduction: PRRT response assessment is performed using RECIST, yet functional assessment using 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT and plasma CgA might give additional information about prediction of overall survival (OS).

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.

#2897 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
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.

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.
