Clinical Trial: PRRT and Chemo combination therapy


Update 2021:  Trial complete.  Results:

The first results of this trial were presented at ASCO 2020 where it was concluded as follows:

“This initial planned analysis demonstrates similarly high 15-month PFS for CAPTEM/PRRT relative to PRRT alone. OTRR (objective tumour response rate (complete or partial response)) is numerically higher but at the cost of greater toxicity. Longer follow-up is required to determine if the activity of PRRT/CAPTEM is sufficient to warrant Phase III evaluation”click here to read the abstract. 

Combination treatments are common in chemotherapy, but this trial was different as it effectively combined the use of different therapies both with their own toxicity risks, albeit low in each therapy type.  The use of PRRT and chemo (in particular CAPTEM) or ‘PRCRT’. The attached video is a presentation by Dr Michael Hofman who I see regularly on twitter posting some very interesting stuff. He’s a great advocate for NET patients. The video will explain in some detail how the treatment is thought to work together.
