SYMNET: A Study of Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) Associated with Lanreotide Autogel (LAN) for the Control of Carcinoid Syndrome (CS) Symptoms in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (GEP-NET) Patients (Pts) Abstract #951

Introduction: Somatostatin analogs can reduce incidence/severity of CS symptoms but their impact on pt satisfaction needs further investigation.
Aim(s): To assess PROs during LAN treatment of CS in NET pts.
Materials and methods: At routine visit, CS-related diarrhea pts treated with LAN for >3 mos completed PRO questionnaires on satisfaction and symptoms associated with CS control. Investigators assessed pt characteristics as predictors for satisfaction.

Introduction: TELESTAR was a pivotal, randomized phase 3 study evaluating telotristat etiprate (TE), a tryptophan hydroxylase inhibitor, among patients (pts) with carcinoid syndrome (CS). When added to somatostatin analogues (SSA), 250 mg tid and 500 mg tid TE each produced significantly greater bowel movement (BM) frequency reduction averaged over 12 weeks (wks) than placebo (PBO) plus SSA (p
