Introduction: Nephrotoxicity is one of the primary concerns in neuroendocrine tumor (NET) patients (pts.) treated with peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRNT).
Aim(s): Long-term (> 5yrs) analyses of the Tubular Extraction Rate (TER) and Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) in NET patients after five cycles of PRRNT.
Materials and methods: These analyses consisted of 32 patients treated with at least five cycles of PRRNT (range 5-8) with Y-90 (n=2, each patient treated with seven cycles) or a combination of Y-90 and Lu-177 (n=30) labeled Somatostatin-Receptor analogues (DOTATAE / DOTATOC) under nephrorprotection. Total cumulative administered radioactivity ranged from 16.5 to 41 GBq.
