Abstract

The purpose of these guidelines is to assist physicians caring for patients with neuroendocrine neoplasia in considering eligibility criteria for peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) and in defining the minimum requirements for PRRT. It is not these guidelines' aim to give recommendations on the use of specific radiolabelled somatostatin analogues for PRRT as different analogues are being used, and their availability is governed by varying international regulations. However, a recent randomized controlled trial, NETTER-1, has provided evidence that may establish 177Lu-DOTA-octreotate (LutaThera®) as the first widely approved agent. It also makes recommendations on what minimal patien..
