Telotristat Etiprate Produces Clinical and Biochemical Responses in Patients with Carcinoid Syndrome: Results of a Phase 2, Multicenter, Open-label, Serial-Ascending Study Abstract #661

Introduction: Excess serotonin (5-HT) in patients (pts) with carcinoid syndrome (CS) is associated with symptoms including increased bowel movement (BM) frequency.
Aim(s): We evaluated the safety/tolerability of telotristat etiprate in CS with intrapatient dose escalation/2 weeks (150, 250, 350, and 500 mg tid) in pts averaging >4 BM/day, with/without concomitant somatostatin analogs.
Materials and methods: Efficacy objectives included evaluation of change in BM/day, stool form, abdominal pain, flushing, adequate relief (AR) of gastrointestinal symptoms, and urinary 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (u5-HIAA) levels. The maximum dose/patient was extended for 4 weeks, (total 12 weeks dosing). If a dose limiting toxicity occurred, the dose was reduced to the prior level.

#2817 METNET: A Phase II Trial of Metformin in Patients with Well Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Preclinical studies have suggested that metformin has antitumor effects, likely due to blockage of mTOR pathway through AMPK and decreased insulin levels. A retrospective study showed that metformin combined with everolimus to treat related hyperglycemia offered longer progression-free survival (PFS) in patients (pts) with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET).
