Study of Lu-177-DOTATATE (Lutathera) in Combination With PARP Inhibitors in Inoperable/Metastatic Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NET)

Clinical Trials
PARP inhibitor with PRRT clinical trials update.  1. NIH Trial SummaryA phase I/II clinical trial at the NIH Clinical Center evaluates the effectiveness of a combination of two agents that may work in complementary ways to target inoperable or metastatic neuroendocrine tumoors. One agent, lutathera, emits radiation inside the body, causing DNA damage, and the second agent, olaparib, a PARP inhibitor, blocks the repair of DNA breaks.  The trial commences in Oct 2022 running for approximately 2 years 9 months. What is Lutathera?It's a type of Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) and has been in use for some years as a standard of care (mostly second line).  Read more click here.What is Olaparib and what does it do in conjunction with Lutathera?Olaparib (AZD-2281, trade name Lynparza) is an FDA-approved targeted therapy for cancer, developed…
