||Neuro-endocrine tumors with carcinoid syndrome
Prospective, interventional, multicentric
- To observe the change from baseline in the incidence of diarrhea and flushing in correlation to the serum octreotide level, independently of the dose variations of octreotide LAR.
- To describe the number of symptoms in correlation to the serum octreotide level, defined by a blood level test of octreotide.
- To describe the rate of diarrhea and flushing via a patient diary
- To describe the impact of increased dose of octreotide LAR on the symptoms: bowel movements and flushing (via patient diary)
- To describe the effect of Octreotide LAR on Quality of Life, based on the change from baseline in the OLO-GINET21 scores
- To describe the effect of Octreotide LAR on tumor control according to RECIST 1.1 criteria
- To describe the safety of octreotide (CTCAE grades)
- To describe the correlation between the dose/frequency of octreotide LAR given and the serum octreotide level
