Neuroendocrine neoplasms are rare cancers in the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, lungs, adrenal glands and other parts of the body. Many of these cancers have a high risk of relapse and a low chance of survival. A trial led by Jaydira Del Rivero, M.D., Associate Research Physician in the Developmental Therapeutics Branch, is studying a new drug for these cancers.

The trial will take place at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and there is no cost for participation.
