ECC 2015: RADIANT-4 trial showed promise in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumours

RADIANT-4, a placebo-controlled, double-blind, phase 3 clinical trial conducted in centres in 13 European countries, Korea, Japan, Canada, and the US, showed that treatment with the mTOR inhibitor, everolimus, had a significant effect in non-functional neuroendocrine tumours (NETs). There was a statistically significant 52% reduction in the risk of progression or death in favour of everolimus, and also a clinically meaningful 2.8 fold (7.1 months) improvement in median progression-free survival compared with those who had taken placebo.
