|Ages Eligible for Study:||15 Years and older (Child, Adult, Older Adult)|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
- Presence of metastasized or locally advanced, inoperable (curative intent) histologically proven, well differentiated Grade 2 or Grade 3 gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine (GEP-NET) tumor diagnosed within 6 months prior to screening.
- Ki67 index ≥10 and ≤ 55%
- Patients ≥ 15 years of age and a body weight of > 40 kg at screening
- Expression of somatostatin receptors on all target lesions documented by CT/MRI scans, assessed by any of the following somatostatin receptor imaging (SRI) modalities within 3 months prior to randomization: [68Ga]-DOTA-TOC (e.g. Somakit-TOC®) PET/CT (or MRI when applicable based on target lesions) imaging, [68Ga]-DOTA-TATE PET/CT (or MRI when applicable based on target lesions) imaging (e.g. NETSPOT®), Somatostatin Receptor scintigraphy (SRS) with [111In]-pentetreotide (Octreoscan® SPECT/CT), SRS with [99mTc]-Tektrotyd, [64Cu]-DOTA-TATE PET/CT (or MRI when applicable based on target lesions) imaging.
- The tumor uptake observed in the target lesions must be > normal liver uptake.
- Karnofsky Performance Score (KPS) ≥ 60
- Presence of at least 1 measurable site of disease
- Patients who have provided a signed informed consent form to participate in the study, obtained prior to the start of any protocol related activities
- Creatinine clearance < 40 mL/min calculated by the Cockroft Gault method
- Hb concentration < 5.0 mmol/L (<8.0 g/dL); WBC < 2x10E9/L (2000/mm3); platelets < 75x10E9/L (75x10E3/mm3)

- Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) at any time prior to randomization in the study.
- Documented RECIST progression to previous treatments for the current GEP-NET at any time prior to randomization
- Patients for whom in the opinion of the investigator other therapeutic options (eg chemo-, targeted therapy) are considered more appropriate than therapy offered in the study, based on patient and disease characteristics
- Any previous therapy with Interferons, Everolimus (mTOR-inhibitors), chemotherapy or other systemic therapies for GEP-NET administered for more than 1 month or within 12 weeks prior to randomization in the study.

- Uncontrolled congestive heart failure (NYHA II, III, IV). Patients with history of congestive heart failure who do not violate this exclusion criterion will undergo an evaluation of their cardiac ejection fraction prior to randomization via echocardiography. The results from an earlier assessment (not exceeding 30 days prior to randomization) may substitute the evaluation at the discretion of the Investigator, if no clinical worsening is noted. The patient's measured cardiac ejection fraction in these patients must be ≥40% before randomization.

- Patients with any other significant medical, psychiatric, or surgical condition, currently uncontrolled by treatment, which may interfere with the completion of the study.
- Prior external beam radiation therapy to more than 25% of the bone marrow.
- Current spontaneous urinary incontinence
- Other known co-existing malignancies except non-melanoma skin cancer and carcinoma in situ of the uterine cervix, unless definitively treated and proven no evidence of recurrence for 5 years
- Patient with known incompatibility to CT Scans with IV contrast due to allergic reaction or renal insufficiency. If such a patient can be imaged with MRI, then the patient would not be excluded.
- Hypersensitivity to any somatostatin analogues, the IMPs active substance or to any of the excipients.
