The Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation (NETRF) is the leading private funder of research into causes and treatments of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) to improve and extend the lives of those living with NETs.
After you’ve been told you had food poisoning or were in menopause, but you had cancer….how do you learn to trust your doctor again? NET specialist Pamela Kunz, MD, talks about trust issues between doctors and patietnts.
NETRF in collaboration with NANETS awarded the 2017 Basic Translational Science Investigator grant to Brian R. Untch, M.D., at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for his proposal, “Enhancing Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy in Well-Differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors.”
Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) treats neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) by converting a cancer cell’s unique characteristics into a welcome mat for a Trojan Horse packed with cancer-killing radiation.
