Observational Model: Case Control, Time Perspective: Prospective
Name: 177Lutetium Type: Radiation
Name: Liver transplantation Type: Procedure
Overall Status
The purpose of this study is to show the tumor free long term survival of patients with isolated non-resectable liver metastases of neuroendocrine tumors after neo-adjuvant radio receptor treatment and following liver transplantation.
Detailed Description
Matching patient will be treated neo-adjuvant at the hospital with 177 Lutetium peptide receptor radiotherapy in two following courses. After this treatment it will follow the liver transplantation within 9 month as postmortal or living donor liver transplantation.

Under certain conditions concerning the evaluation examinations patients can be included in the study.

Most important factors are no evidence of disease outside the liver, removed primary tumor, patients between 18 and 60 years, no curative surgical resection of the liver metastasis possible.
