Brief Summary:
This is a multicenter, open-label, single-arm study to evaluate the safety and dosimetry of Lutathera in adolescent patients 12 to <18 years old with somatostatin receptor positive GEP-NETs and PPGLs. The study will enroll at least 8 patients in the GEP-NET cohort and as many adolescents with PPGL as possible in the exploratory PPGL cohort.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Pheochromocytoma Paraganglioma Drug: Lutetium [177Lu] oxodotreotide/dotatate Phase 2

Detailed Description:

The study schedule for each patient consists of the screening period (up to 2 weeks) followed by the treatment period (4 treatment administrations at 8-week interval), and the follow-up period (5 years).

The treatment period will consist of 4 Lutathera treatments administered at 8-week intervals. Lutathera administration will occur on Week 1 Day 1 of each cycle. Each patient will receive a total of 4 doses of Lutathera (7.4 GBq/200 mCi x 4 administrations every 8 weeks; cumulative dose: 29.6 GBq/800 mCi). An infusion of 2.5% Lysine - Arginine amino acid (AA) solution will be co-administered with each Lutathera dose for renal protection according to the approved Lutathera local prescribing information. An antiemetic will be administered prior to infusion of the AA solution for prevention of infusion-related nausea and vomiting.

The dosimetry and PK assessments will be performed during the first week after the 1st Lutathera dose, i.e. one time during the study treatment period for each patient. The dosimetry analysis will allow for estimation from the 1st Lutathera administration of the cumulative absorbed radiation dose from 4 Lutathera doses and also for taking a decision on the next dose levels. In the exceptional circumstances when dosimetry cannot be performed in a particular patient after the first Lutathera dose, it should be completed as soon as feasible upon a later dose. In order to minimize risk for each study subject, an accelerated analysis of dosimetry and safety data will be performed for each patient in the study, to enable the Investigator to take a decision for the subsequent Lutathera doses. The results of dosimetry assessments (imaging and blood dosimetry) will be provided to the investigators for their evaluation prior to administration of subsequent therapeutic cycles in each patient.

A total follow-up period of 5 years (60 months) after the last Lutathera dose will take place for each patient who received at least one dose of Lutathera. This follow-up period will be comprised of a short-term follow-up of 6 months to evaluate cumulative Lutathera toxicities, followed by a long-term follow up of another 54 months.

An external Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) will also operate in the study to evaluate accumulating safety and dosimetry data, to ensure the safety of adolescents enrolled in the study, and to provide recommendations to investigators as well as to the clinical team in charge of conducting the study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Absorbed radiation doses in target organ [ Time Frame: Up to 8 days after the first Lutetium [Lu 177] dotatate dose ]
    Absorbed radiation doses in target organ (e.g. kidney and bone marrow) will be evaluated when all GEP-NET patients have completed the 1st treatment of Lutathera and completed the dosimetry assessment.

  2. Incidence of adverse events (AEs) after the 1st treatment cycle [ Time Frame: Up to 8 weeks after the first Lutetium [Lu 177] dotatate dose ]
    The distribution of adverse events will be done via the analysis of frequencies for treatment emergent Adverse Event (TEAEs), Serious Adverse Event (TESAEs) and Deaths due to AEs, through the monitoring of relevant clinical and laboratory safety parameters.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of adverse events (AEs) during the short-term follow-up [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months after the last Lutetium [Lu 177] dotatate dose ]
    Cumulative safety of Lutathera in adolescents with SSTR-positive GEP-NETs will be assessed through the incidence of adverse events (AEs) and laboratory toxicities until 6 months after the last Lutathera dose.

  2. Incidence of adverse events (AEs) during the long term follow-up [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years after the last Lutetium [Lu 177] dotatate dose ]
    Long-term safety of Lutathera in adolescents with SSTR-positive GEP-NETs will be evaluated through the incidence of AEs and laboratory abnormalities during the 5-year follow-up after the last Lutathera dose.

  3. Comparative assessment of organ absorbed doses in adolescents and adults [ Time Frame: Up to 8 days after the first Lutetium [Lu 177] dotatate dose ]
    Calculated organ absorbed doses based on imaging radioactivity concentration data from adolescent with SSTR-positive GEP-NETs patients will be compared to the predicted distribution/organ absorbed doses in adult population.

  4. Maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) of Lutetium [Lu 177] dotatate in adolescents and adults [ Time Frame: Day 1 (0, 2, 6 hours post infusion), Day 2 (24 hours post infusion), Day 4 (72 hours post infusion) ]
