Abstract 5134


177Lu-DOTATATE is licensed for gastroenteropancreatic (GEP-)NETs. PRELUDE is an international retrospective study (NCT02788578) to describe LAN use with 177Lu-PRRT (LAN–PRRT) in advanced NETs. Here we report effectiveness results, including a post hoc TGR analysis to complement RECIST-based progression measures.


Analysis of patients (pts) receiving LAN with 177Lu-DOTATATE/DOTATOC followed by LAN only. Key inclusion criteria: metastatic/locally advanced, grade 1/2, somatostatin receptor-positive GEP-/lung NET, progressive disease (PD) within 12 mo and within 6 mo before LAN–PRRT start (assessed locally), ≥1 LAN injection 8 wks before LAN–PRRT start, continuous LAN use during LAN–PRRT, cumulative PRRT activity ≥500 mCi. Primary endpoint: progression-free survival (PFS) rate at end of last LAN–PRRT cycle (RECIST v1.1, central review). Key secondary endpoints: PFS rate at last available follow-up (RECIST v1.1 central review), best overall response (OR; RECIST v1.1 central review). Post hoc analysis: TGR (% variation of tumour volume/mo) calculated from sum of longest diameter of target lesions between two MRI/CT scans during: prebaseline/baseline (within 12 mo and within 6 mo before baseline), baseline/end of last LAN–PRRT cycle (within 6 mo before baseline and end of last LAN–PRRT cycle), and end of last LAN–PRRT cycle/last available follow-up visit.


Enrolment terminated early (insufficient recruitment): 40 pts (GEP n = 39; lung n = 1) (full analysis set: GEP n = 23, lung n = 1). LAN exposure and effectiveness results in GEP-NETs are shown in the table. Waterfall plots of prebaseline/baseline TGR showed individual progressions and regressions, with a mean of 0 [–1.4; 1.5].Table: 1331P

Effectiveness data were encouraging in this small selected population. TGR suggested tumour regression during LAN–PRRT. Despite low baseline TGR, 35% pts had RECIST PR on central assessment.
