Progression-free survival: primary analysis of the Phase 3 NETTER-1 clinical trial
Progression-free survival was the primary endpoint of the NETTER-1 study.1 Dr Alejandro García, Vall d’Hebron University Hospital, Barcelona, Spain, discusses the significant reduction of risk of disease progression or death observed with LUTATHERA® plus octreotide LAR 30mg vs. active control (octreotide LAR 60mg*).12/5 Next Chapter
Overall survival with LUTATHERA®: final analysis from the NETTER-1 clinical trial
Overall survival (OS) was a key secondary endpoint in the Phase 3 NETTER-1 clinical trial of LUTATHERA® plus octreotide LAR 30mg vs active control (octreotide LAR 60mg*).4 Dr Enrique Grande, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Madrid, Spain, reviews the final OS analysis, conducted after a median follow-up of more than 6 years in the NETTER-1 study.4

Health-related quality of life with LUTATHERA®
Dr Henning Jann, Charité University Hospital, Berlin, Germany, describes results from NETTER-1 which demonstrated statistically significant and clinically robust quality of life benefits for patients with inoperable, progressive midgut NET receiving LUTATHERA® plus octreotide LAR 30mg vs. active control (octreotide LAR 60mg*).2

Long-term safety profile of LUTATHERA®
Dr Nicola Fazio, European Institute of Oncology, Milan, Italy, discusses the overall safety profile of LUTATHERA®, based on pooled data from clinical studies (NETTER-1 pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial and Erasmus Phase1/2 clinical trial in Dutch patients) and from compassionate use programs.55/5 Leave Feedback
Overview & Learning Objectives
NETTER-1 is an international Phase 3 clinical trial comparing LUTATHERA® plus best supportive care (30mg octreotide long-acting repeatable [LAR]) vs. high-dose octreotide LAR 60mg*) for patients with inoperable, progressive, somatostatin receptor (SSTR)-positive midgut neuroendocrine tumours (NET).1 Results demonstrate significantly improved progression-free survival, quality of life benefits and symptom reduction in the LUTATHERA® arm vs. high-dose octreotide LAR 60mg.1-3
*High-dose octreotide LAR 60mg is not the licensed dose.
