I recently posted an ‘Onc Live’ video series about Neuroendocrine Tumour (NET) treatments and the final episode talked about combination treatments i.e. where more than one treatment is administered simultaneously. An interesting and exciting area to watch for the treatment of NET patients.
Thought you’d be interested in a potential new treatment being developed in Australia. 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. Additionally, it also provides excellent PRRT information. Dr Hofman has some really interesting things to say. 20 minutes – definitely recommended watching! CLICK HERE
I’d been planning to provide you with this post for a few weeks but was prompted to release early today by an announcement from Unicorn Foundation confirming recruiting is open for a trial named ‘CONTROLNETS’ involving PRRT and CAPTEM. The details of the trial can be read here: CLICK HERE
I’ll flesh out this post in due course.
Thanks for reading
