This research study is designed to evaluate a type of scan called Ga-68-DOTA-TOC positron emission tomography (PET) scanning as a way of assessing carcinoid tumors.
The study aims to identify predictors of disease in patients with hyperparathyroidism (HPTH) who undergo surgery.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate efficacy and safety of Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) with 177Lu-Edotreotide compared to targeted molecular therapy with Everolimus in patients with inoperable, progressive, somatostatin receptor-positive (SSTR+), neuroendocrine tumours of gastroenteric or pancreatic origin (GEP-NET).
Objectives: The aim of the present study is to assess the significance of metabolomics and genetics in diagnosing and survival evaluation for pNET in the periodic follow-up of MEN1 patients. Aim 1: To evaluate the relationship of serum global metabolic profiles with subsequent development of aggressive PNET and evaluate patients survival in a nested case-control study of MEN1 patients who have developed aggressive PNETs (cases) and MEN1 patients who have developed non-aggressive PNETs (controls). Aim 2: Validate the top serum metabolites identified from Aim 1 in MEN1 patients who have developed aggressive PNETs and MEN1 patients who have developed non-aggressive PNETs, using a targeted metabolomics approach. Aim 3: Prospectively identify the potential miRNA biomarkers of serum with miRNA sequencing in MEN1 patients who have developed aggressive PNETs (cases) and MEN1 patients who have developed non-aggressive PNETs (controls). Aim 4: Validate the potential miRNA biomarkers identified from Aim 1 in MEN1 patients who have developed aggressive PNETs and in MEN1 patients who have developed non-aggressive PNETs, using a targeted qRT-PCR approach (in serums), as well as to see the relationship of potential miRNA biomarkers with patients survival.
This study is designed to identify the best tolerated doses of Iodine-MIBG and Yttrium-DOTATOC when co-administered to treat midgut neuroendocrine tumors. These drugs (131I-MIBG, 90Y-DOTATOC) are radioactive drugs, known as radionuclide therapy. Currently, the safest and best tolerated doses of these drugs (when combined together) is unknown.
This study is for patients with non-resectable, recurrent, or metastatic well or moderately differentiated gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs). The study will be conducted in two stages: 1) Safety Run-In and 2) Expanded Cohort. 1. Safety run-in: The first stage will include a safety run-in of 6 patients treated with pembrolizumab 200 mg intravenous (IV) every 3 weeks and lanreotide depot 90mg subcutaneous (SQ) every 3 weeks. Up to 6 patients at the Duke Cancer Institute will be accrued at the starting dose level. If one or less subject meets treatment-related discontinuation criteria (as specified in the protocol) during Cycle 1, then the study will proceed to the second stage, Expanded Cohort. 2. Expanded Cohort: Patients will be treated with pembrolizumab 200mg IV every 3 weeks and lanreotide depot 90mg SQ every 3 weeks as determined by the Safety Run-In Cohort.
OBJECTIVES: The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of estrogen on the development of the PNET in MEN1 patients. The secondary objective is to evaluate the overall survival and disease specific survival in patients who have confirmed MEN1 with or without PNET and a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor in relation to their hormone status. The secondary objective is to evaluate clinicopathologic features in relation to hormone status.
The purpose of this study is evaluate the efficacy and safety of FOLFIRINOX in patients with gastroenteropancreatic high-grade neuroendocrine carcinomas. This is a prospective Phase II open-label trial, stratifying gastroenteropancreatic high grade neuroendocrine carcinomas participants equally into two cohorts (first-line versus beyond first-line).
Single centre prospective cohort phase III study of 18F-DOPA PET/CT imaging in specific patient populations: 1. Pediatric patients with congenital hyperinsulinism 2. Pediatric patients with neuroblastoma 3. Pediatric or Adult patients with suspected extra-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor 4. Adult patients with a clinical suspicion of Parkinson's disease 5. Pediatric or Adult patients with primary brain tumors This study will evaluate the biodistribution and safety of 18F-DOPA produced at the Edmonton PET Centre.
The purpose of this study is to learn if a new drug, ONC201 can make tumors become smaller or go away completely. Investigators also want to learn if ONC201 can prevent new deposits of cancer from appearing in new places in participants (metastases). A phase 2 study of ONC201 in PC-PG (pheochromocytoma-paraganglioma) and other neuroendocrine tumors will determine whether inhibition of DRD2 (a member of the dopamine receptor family) is safe in neuroendocrine cancers including PC-PG. ONC201 is an investigational (experimental) agent and has a favorable safety profile in phase 1 and early phase 2 clinical trials in advanced cancers. This study design has been chosen to see whether ONC201 is associated with reduction of anti-hypertension medications, safety and significant efficacy against neuroendocrine tumors, especially PC-PG.
