Objective: To Show the initial experience and preliminary results of therapy with [177Lu-Dota0- Tyr3] - Octreotate (177 Lu-Dotatate) in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (net) treated in our institution, because the experience gained from this practice in Latin American countries is poorly known. Materials and methods: A descriptive and retrospective analysis in patients who have undergone therapy with 177 Lu-Dotatate with at least one dose and at least one year of follow-up was performed. 8 patients (4 women and 4 men) with a mean age of 57 years (50-63) were included. A total of 24 doses were given, an average of 3 doses per patient. A total of 187 GBq were administered, equivalent to 23.5 GBq / patient. Response to therapy and the presence of adverse short and long term effects were assessed. Results: The average follow-up time was 46 months (26-72 months). 5/8 patients were diagnosed with pancreatic net, 2/8 of gastric origin and 1/8 of small bowel origin. 7/8 patients had metastatic involvement and 1/8 patient despite not having metastasis was considered unresectable. 6/8 patients had mild post-therapy symptoms and 1/8 serious adverse events. 2/8 patients had partial response, 4/8 stable disease and 2/8 had a complete response. At the end of follow-up, however, one patient who had a complete response presented with recurrence and one with partial response showed progression and death. Conclusions: In our experience, therapy with 177 Lu-Dotatate was safe and effective in patients with net as an alternative therapy with appropriate levels of response and disease control and with mild expected adverse events and self-limiting minimum serious events.
