Additional US study sites are now participating in an ongoing clinical trial of peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) with 177Lu-edotreotide as a first or second
Brittany Holzhauer had her whole future planned. A self-professed “dreamer” with incredible determination, she started her career as pharmacist in 2018 and with her husband Luke, welcomed her first child, Lorelei, in June of 2019.
“In 2012, my husband was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor (NET) cancer. At that time, there was little information and few treatment options,” said Suzanne Ludlow, NETRF Board Member and generous benefactor of NETRF’s second edition of “Neuroendocrine Cancer: A Guide for Patients and Families.” Suzanne lost her beloved husband Vincent in 2017, but she’s honoring his life while supporting other patients and families navigating NETs as a new member of the NETRF Board of Trustees.

A new clinical trial being conducted at a single center in Switzerland aims to explore a therapy using a novel somatostatin receptor subtype 2 antagonist labelled with Terbium-161 (161Tb-DOTA-LM3). The study is sponsored by University Hospital, Basel, in collaboration with the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Paul Sherrer Institute and builds upon research funded by NETRF.
A patient advocacy-led clinical research study aims to determine if patients who have rare tumors can benefit from matched molecular therapy based on the results of their genomic profiling. Patients with neuroendocrine tumors and unknown primaries may be eligible for this study. Sponsored by the TargetCancer Foundation, in collaboration with Foundation Medicine Inc., the TCF-001 TRACK (Target Rare Cancer Knowledge) Study uses next-generation sequencing to develop a comprehensive genomic profile of each participant’s tumor as well as their plasma circulating cell-free DNA (blood).
A new phase II clinical trial is exploring the effects of two approved chemotherapy drugs administered after surgery to treat adult patients who have high-risk, well-differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETS).
