COMPETE is led as an international, prospective, randomized, controlled, open-label, multicenter phase III study. This means, that during the study new data will be collected (prospective), that results in patients receiving the new treatment are compared to a control group receiving the standard therapy (controlled) and that patients are randomly allocated to receive either n.c.a. Lutetium-177-Edotreotide or the current standard of care (randomized). Additionally, patients and physicians know what drug is being administered (open-label) and the study is conducted at multiple sites in multiple countries simultaneously (multicenter).
The trial will evaluate the efficacy and safety of the targeted radiopharmaceutical n.c.a. Lutetium-177-Edotreotide (PRRT) compared with the standard therapy Everolimus in patients with neuroendocrine tumors of gastroenteric or pancreatic origin (GEP-NET). It is intended specifically for patients who have progressive NETs which have spread to other parts of the body (metastatic) or that cannot be removed with surgery.
If you are interested in taking part in the study, please ask your attending clinician whether you comply with the inclusion criteria. There are 38 site locations around the globe, click here for more details.
