Gallium-68 DOTATOC is a material used to find neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) using positron emission tomography (PET scan). The material has already been shown to be better than the currently available imaging agents. This study is designed to evaluate the clinical impact of PET CT scanning using this agent in the evaluation and management of patients with NETs.

The purpose of this study is to see how a new tracer named 18F-MFBG (Meta Fluorobenzyl Guanidine) behaves in the body after injection, how it spreads to all the organs and how it is removed from the body. We will also study how long 18F-MFBG lasts in the blood after administered. In addition we want to study if 18F-MFBG can show Neuroendocrine tumors on a PET-CT scan.

This study plans to demonstrate the safety and efficacy of [68Ga]-DOTA-tyr3-Octreotide ([68Ga]-DOTATOC) as an accurate imaging technique for diagnosis, staging, and monitoring of response to treatment in patients with Somatostatin receptor expressing tumors who undergo imaging with a clinical indication. The investigators will conduct a study for 68Ga-DOTATOC as a diagnostic PET/CT imaging agent for the detection of NETs, mainly carcinoid tumors. 68Ga-DOTATOC will be used in diagnostic assessment of patients with known or suspected NETs for whom there is an appropriate standard clinical indication for 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT either at staging or during follow up.

Background: - Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) come from cells of the hormonal and nervous systems. Some people have surgery to shrink the tumor. Sometimes the tumors come back. Researchers think that treatment with drugs based on knowing the defective gene might give better results. Objective: - To see if drugs selected based on the defective gene result in better tumor response. The drugs are sunitinib and everolimus. Eligibility: - People age 18 and older with an advanced low- or intermediate-grade gastrointestinal or pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor. Design: - Participants will be screened with: < TAB> - Medical history < TAB> - Physical exam < TAB> - Scans < TAB> - Blood, urine, and lab tests - The study team will see if participants should have surgery. - If yes, participants will: - Sign a separate consent - Have CT scan before and after surgery - Have as much of the tumor removed as possible. A small piece will be tested for mutation type. - If no, participants will have a small piece of tumor removed for the testing. - If the surgery might cure them, the participant will leave the study. The other participants will be assigned to take either sunitinib or everolimus. - Participants will take their drug by mouth once a day. They will keep a medicine diary. Some will keep track of their blood pressure at least weekly. - Screening tests may be repeated at study visits. Participants also may have their heart evaluated. - About 30 days after the last day of their study drug, participants will have a follow-up visit that repeats the screening tests. - Participants will be contacted every 3 months after this visit.

a multicenter, open-label phase Ib study to determine the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of Sulfatinib 300 mg once a day in treating advanced neuroendocrine tumors

Through the investigators involvement in an international consortium, the investigators had the opportunity to acquire a new type of synthetizer for the radiolabelling of such tracers. The investigators propose in this project to develop on their site, the radiosynthesis of 68Ga-DOTATOC and to evaluate prospectively the diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors, compared with the current imaging OctreoScan®. The objectives of this project are: - to validate the radiosynthesis of 68Ga-DOTATOC on their site with a new synthetizer - and clinically evaluate, through a prospective preliminary study, the diagnostic accuracy of PET-CT with 68Ga-DOTATOC in comparison with other standard imaging examinations.

Patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (NET) often die from intrahepatic disease or are excluded from liver-directed treatment because of extrahepatic disease. Adjuvant liver-directed treatment is warranted to control both intra- and extrahepatic disease. Patients with liver metastases of NET will be included in this study (n = 30-48).The efficacy and toxicity of adjuvant 166Ho-radioembolization (166Ho-RE) after systemic 177Lu-dotatate will be studied in a non-comparative phase II study. The study is an interventional, treatment, non-randomized, open label, non-comparative, phase II study. 166Ho-RE will be performed via a catheter during angiography.

Well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (WDNETs) are uncommon neoplasms with an increasing number of new cases reported in the annual statistics of the Instituto Nacional de Cancerología (INC). The majority are advanced-stage presentations with limited chances of a complete surgical resection of the primary tumor, a clinical scenario where medical treatment options are also limited. In view of the characteristically defined expression of peptide receptors in WDNETs, radioactive molecular probes to target specific cellular receptors have been designed using radioisotopes with short range of penetration in tissues. We have designed a one-arm phase II prospective sequential clinical trial to assess the therapeutic efficacy of 177-Lu-[DOTA 0, Tyr 3] octreotate (177-Lu- DOTATATE) applied intravenously in three separate doses to patients with inoperable progressive WDNET. Selected patients matching inclusion criteria will be enrolled at the INC's Section of Endocrinology. Tumor response, treatment safety (side effects) and survival will be appraised. Data from clinical, biochemical and imaging follow-up will be periodically registered during treatment and until two years after the last infusion of 177Lu- DOTATATE. This phase II trial is justified because despite the fact that many preclinical and clinical studies have showed the potential usefulness of this novel palliative approach to treat patients with advanced-stage WDNETs there is a paucity of vigorous results to establish its efficacy as first-line treatment.

Background: - Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare but have been more common over the past decade. The only treatment for NETs is surgery, but most are found when they are too advanced for surgery. Researchers are looking for the best way to find NETs earlier, so that surgery can be successful. They want to test if the study drug can be used along with imaging devices to detect NETs. Objectives: - To see how well a new experimental imaging agent, 68Gallium-DOTATATE, detects unknown primary and metastatic NETs in the gastrointestinal system and pancreas. Eligibility: - Adults over 18 years old with a suspected NET or family history of NET. Design: - Participants will be screened with a medical history and physical exam, and have a blood test. - Participants will undergo three scans. For all of these, a substance is injected into their body, they lie on a table, and a machine takes images. < TAB> - A standard CT scan of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. < TAB> - An octreotide scintigraphy SPECT/CT. < TAB> - A 68Gallium-DOTATATE PET/CT. The study drug is injected into a vein, usually in the arm. Low-dose X-rays go through the body. For about 40 minutes a large, donut-shaped device takes images of the body. The entire session takes 90 to 120 minutes. - Researchers will compare images from the three scans. - Participants will have 1 follow-up visit each year for 5 years. At this visit, they will have a medical exam, blood taken, and a CT scan.
