Natural History Study of Children and Adults With Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NEN)s

Background: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are rare tumors that originate in neuroendocrine cells. NENs can affect almost any part of the body. People with low-grade tumors can live many years. But high-grade tumors can be very aggressive. Researchers want to learn more about this type of cancer. This may help them design better treatments and supportive care studies. Objective: To gain a better understanding of neuroendocrine neoplasms. Eligibility: People starting at age 3 and older who have or are suspected of having NENs and are enrolled in protocol 19C0016, Natural History and Biospecimen Acquisition Study for Children and Adults with Rare Solid Tumors Design: Participants will be screened with questions about their medical history. This may be done over the telephone or in person. Participants medical records, test results, and imaging results will be reviewed. They may have scans and blood tests. They may sign a separate consent form for some of the tests. Participants will complete paper or electronic surveys. The surveys will ask about the effects of cancer on their wellbeing. Participants may give samples of their tumors from previous surgeries or biopsies. These samples will be used to study their tumor genes. Participants will get advice on how to manage their NENs. They will also get recommendations about potential treatment options. Participants home doctors will be contacted every 6 to 12 months. They will give medical data such as imaging and test results. Participants may have follow-up visits at NIH every 6 to 12 months. Participants will contact researchers if there are any changes in their tumor. Participants will be followed on this study for life.

Natural History and Management of Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) Associated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors

Background: People with von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) can have problems with a variety of organs, such as the pancreas. The disease can cause tumors of the pancreas. This can result in life-threatening complications. Researchers want to learn more about these pancreatic tumors and how to better detect them. This may help them design better future treatment and care for people with VHL disease. Objective: To better understand VHL disease that affects the pancreas and to test whether adding a certain type of scan (68-Gallium DOTATATE PET/CT) can further detect tumors. Eligibility: People ages 12 and older with VHL that causes tumors and cysts to grow in the pancreas Design: Participants will be screened with their medical records and imaging studies. Participants will have an initial evaluation: Participants will have their body examined by different doctors. This will depend on what types of symptoms they have. Participants will have blood and urine tests Participants will have images made of their body using one or more machines: They made have a CT or PET/CT scan in which they lie on a table that moves through a big ring. They may have an MRI in which they lie on a table that moves into a big tube. They may have an ultrasound that uses a small stick that produces sound waves to look at the body. After the first visit, participants will be asked to return to the NIH. Some of the tests performed at the first visit will be repeated. Depending on their disease status, visits will be once a year or every 2 years for life.

Neoadjuvant PRRT With 177Lu-DOTATATE Followed by Surgery for Resectable PanNET

Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) is based on specific somatostatin receptor targeting with radiolabelled analogues 90Y-DOTATOC and 177Lu-DOTATATE. These two most commonly used radiopeptides, 90Y-DOTATOC and 177Lu-DOTATATE, produce overall objective response rates of 15-35%. PRRT is generally well tolerated with mild toxicity, if the necessary precautions, such as the co-administration of nephroprotective amino acids or the adjustment of the administered activity, are taken. The main aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and the efficacy of neoadjuvant PRRT with 177Lu-DOTATATE followed by surgical resection for resectable non-functioning PanNETs at high risk of recurrence. The primary endpoint is the Rate of postoperative 90-day morbidity and mortality after neoadjuvant PRRT with 177Lu-DOTATATE followed by pancreatic resection and the secondary endpoints are: Rate of objective radiological response to PRRT with 177Lu-DOTATATE according to modified RECIST criteria (mRECIST) Quality of life (QoL) after neoadjuvant PRRT followed by pancreatic surgical resection. The study is designed as a prospective phase II single-arm trial. 8 Italian centers will participate to the study (6 surgical sites, 2 nuclear medicine sites). Patients will be recruited for 12 months. The study will end 2 months after operation of the last patient enrolled and the total duration of the study will be 24 months. Sample size estimation: 30 patients

Lu-177-DOTATATE (Lutathera) in Combination With Olaparib in Inoperable Gastroenteropancreatico Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NET)

Background: A neuroendocrine tumor is a rare type of tumor. It comes from body cells called neuroendocrine cells. Sometimes, these tumors develop in the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas. Researchers want to find out if a combination of drugs can shrink these tumors. Objective: To learn if people with certain neuroendocrine tumors can take a combination of 2 drugs, Lutathera and Olaparib, without having severe side effects, and if this treatment makes the tumors shrink. Eligibility: Adults 18 and older who have a neuroendocrine tumor in the pancreas or intestine that cannot be cured by surgery and has somatostatin receptors on the cells. Design: Participants will be screened under protocol 01-C-0129. They may have a tumor biopsy. Eligible participants will get Lutathera through an intravenous (IV) infusion every 8 weeks for 4 cycles. One cycle is 8 weeks. Each cycle includes a follow-up visit at week 4. For the IV, a small plastic tube is put into an arm vein. Participants will also take Olaparib by mouth twice a day for 4 weeks of each cycle. They will use a medicine diary to track the doses. During the study, participants will have physical exams. They will have blood and urine tests. They will fill out questionnaires about their general well-being and function. Their heart function will be tested. They will have scans of their chest, abdomen, and pelvis. One type of scan will use an IV infusion of a radioactive tracer. Participants will have a follow-up visit about 4 weeks after treatment ends. Then they will have follow-up visits every 12 weeks for 3 years. Then they will have yearly phone calls....
