Objective: Few studies describe peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) using (90)Y- or (177)Lu-labeled peptides in patients with recurrent meningiomas. No clinical data about (111)In-Pentetreotide in such patients are available. We report on (111)In-Pentetreotide therapy in patients with inoperable meningiomas and review the literature about PRRT of meningiomas. Methods: We reviewed clinical records of 8 patients with meningioma/meningiomatosis showing high (111)In-Pentetreotide uptake on pretherapy scintigraphy who were treated with at least one cycle of (111)In-Pentetreotide. In 2 patients, a cocktail of (111)In-Pentetreotide and beta-emitting radiolabeled peptides had been administered. Results: No patient experienced acute toxicity, neurological or renal function impairment. Mild transient bone marrow toxicity was observed in 4 patients. Objective partial response was observed in 2 patients, stable disease in 5 and disease progression in one. There were no statistically significant correlations between objective response and patient age, tumor WHO grade, baseline Karnofsky performance score, (111)In-Pentetreotide tumoral uptake grade, tumor/nontumor ratio, disease state at baseline, and cumulative dose. Conclusions: In consideration of its efficacy and the lack of significant toxicity, PRRT of meningiomas using (111)In-Pentetreotide could be proposed even nowadays when the use of (177)Lu- or (90)Y-labeled peptides seems unsafe, namely in patients with renal impairment/toxicity.

Abstract

Objective: Few studies describe peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) using (90)Y- or (177)Lu-labeled peptides in patients with recurrent meningiomas. No clinical data about (111)In-Pentetreotide in such patients are available. We report on (111)In-Pentetreotide therapy in patients with inoperable meningiomas and review the literature about PRRT of meningiomas. Methods: We reviewed clinical records of 8 patients with meningioma/meningiomatosis showing high (111)In-Pentetreotide uptake on pretherapy scintigraphy who were treated with at least one cycle of (111)In-Pentetreotide. In 2 patients, a cocktail of (111)In-Pentetreotide and beta-emitting radiolabeled peptides had been administered. Results: No patient experienced acute toxicity, neurological or renal function impairment. Mild transient bone marrow toxicity was observed in 4 patients. Objective partial response was observed in 2 patients, stable disease in 5 and disease progression in one. There were no statistically significant correlations between objective response and patient age, tumor WHO grade, baseline Karnofsky performance score, (111)In-Pentetreotide tumoral uptake grade, tumor/nontumor ratio, disease state at baseline, and cumulative dose. Conclusions: In consideration of its efficacy and the lack of significant toxicity, PRRT of meningiomas using (111)In-Pentetreotide could be proposed even nowadays when the use of (177)Lu- or (90)Y-labeled peptides seems unsafe, namely in patients with renal impairment/toxicity.
