Lung Neuroendocrine Neoplasm clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Lung Neuroendocrine Neoplasm is a type of lung cancer. UCSF is recruiting for a clinical trial testing a new treatment, lutetium Lu 177 dotatate, for patients with advanced bronchial neuroendocrine tumors. The trial compares this new treatment to the usual treatment, everolimus.
Testing Lutetium Lu 177 Dotatate in Patients With Somatostatin Receptor Positive Advanced Bronchial Neuroendocrine Tumors
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This phase II trial studies the effect of lutetium Lu 177 dotatate compared to the usual treatment (everolimus) in treating patients with somatostatin receptor positive bronchial neuroendocrine tumors that have spread to other places in the body (advanced). Radioactive drugs, such as lutetium Lu 177 dotatate, may carry radiation directly to tumor cells and may reduce harm to normal cells. Lutetium Lu 177 dotatate may be more effective than everolimus in shrinking or stabilizing advanced bronchial neuroendocrine tumors.
