The primary objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of Lanreotide 120 mg for the relief of clinical symptoms due to malignant bowel obstruction in inoperable patients. This effect will be evaluated by the percentage of responder patients 7 and 14 days after one administration of lanreotide 120 mg.
(A responder patient will be defined either as a patient experiencing < or= 1 vomiting episode per day during at least three consecutive days or as a patient in whom NGT has been removed without any vomiting recurrence during at least three consecutive days)
The total number of visits will depend on the clinical situation, 5 visits are obligatory: Day(D)-3/-0,Day 1,Day 7,Day 14,Day 28
Inclusion visit (D-3/-0): eligibility, PIC, obstruction history, clinical exam, vital signs, diary cards, VAS scale, cc medication, blood sample
Visit D1: injection Visit D7/D14/28: clinical exam, nutrition procedure, result of biochemical analyse, adverse events, cc medication
In between the visits, the patient will keep and fill out his diary and VAS scale

A condition caused by the lack of intestinal PERISTALSIS or INTESTINAL MOTILITY without any mechanical obstruction. This interference of the flow of INTESTINAL CONTENTS often leads to INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION. Ileus may be classified into postoperative, inflammatory, metabolic, neurogenic, and drug-induced.
Dilatation of the intestinal lymphatic system usually caused by an obstruction in the intestinal wall. It may be congenital or acquired and is characterized by DIARRHEA; HYPOPROTEINEMIA; peripheral and/or abdominal EDEMA; and PROTEIN-LOSING ENTEROPATHIES.
A twisting in the intestine (INTESTINES) that can cause INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION.
Any impairment, arrest, or reversal of the normal flow of INTESTINAL CONTENTS toward the ANAL CANAL.
Congenital obliteration of the lumen of the intestine, with the ILEUM involved in 50% of the cases and the JEJUNUM and DUODENUM following in frequency. It is the most frequent cause of INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION in NEWBORNS. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
