Abstract: ABSTRACT Neuroendocrine tumours (NET) often present at a metastatic stage, which diminishes the possibility for curative surgery. Peptide receptor radiotherapy (PRRT) with 177Lu-DOTATATE targets somatostatin receptors, which are overexpressed on NET cells. PRRT results in symptom relief and often tumour control of NETs, but rarely cure. Tumour response is variable and renal and haematological toxicity are dose-limiting side effects. In metastatic small intestinal NET (SI-NET) hepatic metastase... more
