Patient Satisfaction Regarding Home Injection Service for Somatostatin Analogues: A Survey Among Patients with a Neuroendocrine Tumour Abstract #1646

Introduction: Depot somatostatin analogues (SSA) Sandostatin LAR® (SL) and Somatuline Autogel® (SA) injections, are facilitated by a professional home injection service.
Aim(s): We have evaluated patient satisfactory in relation to this service.
Materials and methods: All patients with neuroendocrine tumours using depot SSA and home injection service ≥ 3 months were approached. A survey was designed with satisfaction related theorems with a five-point Likert scale, multiple choice and free text.

#3021 Homecare Service for Administration of Lanreotide Autogel Injections: Assessment of Patients’ Experience
Introduction: In the past, all Neuroendocrine Neoplasm (NEN) patients (pts) on long-acting somatostatin analogues (SA), had to attend local hospitals/clinics to have them administered by nurses/doctors. Recently, a “homecare service” was developed, allowing pts to have their injections delivered to their home and injections were either administered by themselves, their partner or a Specialist Nurse (SN).

#2075 Phase 1 Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Study of APOC, a New Controlled Release Formulation (CRF) of 15mg Octreotide Acetate in Healthy Male Volunteers
Introduction: Somatostatin analogues (SSAs) are considered the gold standard for systemic therapy of advanced neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Octreotide is one of the SSAs most widely used in long-term therapies of NETs. There is increasing evidence that clinical benefits could be obtained with higher SSAs circulating levels but remain unreachable with current products without impacting significantly the quality of life of the patients. APOC is a new injectable controlled release technology containing Octreotide invented and developed by Ascil-Biopharm and designed to cover specifically these clinical unmet needs. It is presented as ready-to-use and can easily be manufactured at selected doses and durations in prefilled syringe.

Introduction: Lanreotide autogel (LAN) and octreotide long acting release (OCT) are long-acting somatostatin analogues (LA-SSAs) used to treat patients (pts) with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs). However, the treatments differ in terms of injection route, need for administration by a health care professional and dosing interval.
