The purpose of this Phase II trial will be to define the activity of a VEGF inhibitor bevacizumab, HER1/HER2 inhibitor pertuzumab, and sandostatin for patients with advanced neuroendocrine cancers. In particular, the efficacy of bevacizumab and pertuzumab treatment is of great interest. The primary endpoint of this trial will be response rate. Toxicity and progression-free survival will be obtained and evaluated.
- To determine overall response rate of patients with low grade neuroendocrine cancer when treated with the combination of bevacizumab, pertuzumab and sandostatin LAR®.
- To determine the disease control rate (objective response + stable disease), time to treatment progression, progression-free survival, and overall survival in patients with advanced low grade neuroendocrine cancer when treated with bevacizumab, pertuzumab and Sandostatin LAR® treatment.
- To define the toxicity and safety of the combination of bevacizumab, pertuzumab and Sandostatin LAR® when used in patients with advanced low grade neuroendocrine cancer.

The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of Sandostatin LAR® (Registered Trademark) Depot to transsphenoidal surgery in previously untreated acromegalic patients with macroade...
Neuroendocrine tumors of the ovary are rare and of uncertain histogenesis. They may be primary or metastatic. Pathogenesis of ovarian carcinomas remains unknown. We report the case of an ovarian large...
Studies have shown that addition of bevacizumab to corticosteroids improves outcome against radiation-induced brain necrosis (RN). Here, we aimed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of bevacizuma...
Trastuzumab and pertuzumab are monoclonal antibodies used for the treatment of breast cancer. Until now, there have been no reports on the use of pertuzumab during pregnancy and on its potential effec...
Thymic large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) is extremely rare. The detailed clinical features of thymic LNCECs remain unknown.
Acral cutaneous metastasis from internal malignancy is rare, and the pathogenesis is not completely understood. We present the case of a 54-year-old black woman with a history of breast cancer diagnos...
A group of carcinomas which share a characteristic morphology, often being composed of clusters and trabecular sheets of round "blue cells", granular chromatin, and an attenuated rim of poorly demarcated cytoplasm. Neuroendocrine tumors include carcinoids, small ("oat") cell carcinomas, medullary carcinoma of the thyroid, Merkel cell tumor, cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinoma, pancreatic islet cell tumors, and pheochromocytoma. Neurosecretory granules are found within the tumor cells. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
A carcinoma arising from MERKEL CELLS located in the basal layer of the epidermis and occurring most commonly as a primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. Merkel cells are tactile cells of neuroectodermal origin and histologically show neurosecretory granules. The skin of the head and neck are a common site of Merkel cell carcinoma, occurring generally in elderly patients. (Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1245)
Tumors whose cells possess secretory granules and originate from the neuroectoderm, i.e., the cells of the ectoblast or epiblast that program the neuroendocrine system. Common properties across most neuroendocrine tumors include ectopic hormone production (often via APUD CELLS), the presence of tumor-associated antigens, and isozyme composition.
A 38-kDa integral membrane glycoprotein of the presynaptic vesicles in neuron and neuroendocrine cells. It is expressed by a variety of normal and neoplastic neuroendocrine cells and is therefore used as an immunocytochemical marker for neuroendocrine differentiation in various tumors. In ALZHEIMER DISEASE and other dementing disorders, there is an important synapse loss due in part to a decrease of synaptophysin in the presynaptic vesicles.
An acidic protein found in the NEUROENDOCRINE SYSTEM that functions as a molecular chaperone for PROPROTEIN CONVERTASE 2.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
