RegisterNET - A Registry for Neuroendocrine Tumors in the USA

Study Purpose

Neuroendocrine tumors are derived from the neuroendocrine system of the gastroenteropancreatic and bronchopulmonary tract systems. Treatment options include surgery, medical and ablative therapies as well as peptide-receptor radionuclide therapy. Survival is linked to early and accurate diagnoses or to the effective detection of disease recurrence and/or treatment failure. One challenge is to develop accurate non-invasive blood tests that can detect neuroendocrine tumor activity. A second challenge is to evaluate the effectiveness of molecular biomarkers in the natural history of this disease. RegisterNET registry aims at collecting data and blood samples from patients presenting with a NET in the USA. Data will be entered prospectively and anonymized after informed consent. All physicians who treat neuroendocrine tumor patients are invited to participate to the registry. Data will be evaluated within regular time frames, focusing on diagnostic accuracy for biomarkers in the different types and grades of tumors, treatment modalities and patient outcomes (e.g. disease recurrence and survival), thereby contributing to an understanding of the role of biomarkers in tumor management.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.


Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Additional Details

Background: Survival for neuroendocrine tumors is linked to early and accurate diagnoses or to the effective detection of disease recurrence and/or treatment failure. Non-invasive biomarkers have been identified that can improve diagnosis and prognosis of patients. Little, however, is known about the utility of these markers in clinical practice. Objective: To systematically and prospectively collect clinical information and blood samples from neuroendocrine tumors in the USA based a histologically confirmed diagnosis. Methods: All neuroendocrine tumors (gastroenteropancreatic and pulmonary) are following informed consent. Data will be entered prospectively and anonymized. Patient history including a quality of life survey are completed by contributing physicians and blood sample is collected for analysis. All information will be transferred to the database. Evaluation of treatment modalities and patient outcomes (e.g. disease recurrence) will be assessed at follow-up times. The primary objectives of the project are to:

  • - monitor patients with neuroendocrine tumors.
  • - provide descriptive statistical analyses.
  • - assessment of diagnostic accuracy of molecular-based blood tests.
The secondary objectives of the project include:
  • - assessment of disease recurrence.
  • - analysis of patient survival.
Analyses will include: 1. Descriptive statistical analyses including demographics, site, treatment, QoL assessment. 2. Clinical follow-up and blood chemistry results. 3. Correlation analyses between blood results and clinical data. This will include assessment of the time at which the blood chemistry results significantly (and consistently) increases and the time of tumor recurrence and an evaluation whether the change in blood results is predictive of disease recurrence.
