Pentetreotide is a diethylaminotriaminepentaacetic acid (DPTA) conjugate of octreotide, a long acting analog of somatostatin. It is used with Indium (In-111) as an imaging agent to visualize somatostatin receptor rich tissue. In combination with high activity In-111 it has been evaluated as a treatment for neuroendocrine tumors. Efficacy of pentetreotide is demonstrated by distribution of In-111 to somatostatin receptor rich tumors. The normal adult intravenous dose of pentetreotide used as the carrier agent in the diagnostic imaging test is 10 μg per use combined with 111 MBq of In-111. When used with high intensity In-111 to treat neuroendocrine tumors, the dose is 3-5 GBq In-111 combined with 30 μg pentetreotide per use.
