2021 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium

Advertisement

Rocio Garcia-Carbonero, MD, of Hospital Universitario 12 De Octubre, discusses results of the phase II/III AXINET trial, which showed that axitinib plus long-acting release octreotide improved overall response compared with placebo and octreotide in patients with advanced grade 1 or 2 extrapancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. However, no significant improvement in progression-free survival was observed (Abstract 360).
