Lutetium Octreotate Therapy

Lutetium-177 Octreotate Therapy is used as a treatment for people with tumours that emerge from the endocrine or nervous system; these are called neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) or carcinoids. This therapy aims to reduce the size of the tumour/s and stop them from multiplying, as well as to ease the symptoms that people may get with these tumours. In a number of patients this can lead to long term remission of the disease.
