Purpose: To evaluate efficacy and safety of bevacizumab, pertuzumab, and octreotide depot for advanced neuroendocrine tumors.
Methods: Patients received bevacizumab 15 mg/kg and pertuzumab 420 mg IV q21 days with octreotide depot 30 mg IM q28 days.
Results: Toxicities in 43 patients included diarrhea (63%), fatigue (63%), hypertension (44%), and nausea (44%). Reversible G3 hypertension (26%) and LVEF decline (9%) occurred. 7/43 patients achieved objective response (typical carcinoid, 5; pancreatic NET, 2). Median PFS and OS were 6.5 and 26.4 months, respectively.
Discussion: Bevacizumab, pertuzumab, and octreotide depot was well-tolerated with a 16% ORR. Results in the well-differentiated carcinoid tumors are thought provoking.
