TouchONCOLOGY got the chance to catch up with Rocio Garcia-Carbonero (Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre, Madrid, Spain) on the use of octreotide acetate with axitinib for the treatment of patients with non-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (Clinical Trial Identifier: NCT01744249). The abstract ‘A phase II/III randomized double-blind study of octreotide acetate with axitinib versus octreotide acetate with placebo in patients with advanced G1-G2 NETs of non-pancreatic origin (AXINET trial-GETNE-1107).’ (ABSTRACT NUMBER: 360) was presented at the virtual ASCO Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium 2021, 15-17 January, 2021.
- What is the rationale for the combination of octreotide with axitinib in the treatment of patients with non-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs)? (0:20)
- Could you tell us a little about the AXINET trial-GETNE-1107 and its findings? (2:09)
- Since the combination of axitinib and octreotide failed to demonstrate a significant improvement in PFS compared with placebo and octreotide, what will be the next steps in the investigation of axitinib for non-pancreatic NETs? (6:04)
