Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to Tumor Progression Documented by Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) [ Time Frame: Up to 7 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Median time to tumor progression at the time of the planned interim analysis that includes all data observed until June 2008.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Response Rates According to World Health Organization (WHO) Criteria at 3 Month Intervals [ Time Frame: at 3 month intervals ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Biochemical Response at 3 Month Intervals [ Time Frame: at 3 month intervals up to 18 moths ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Symptom Control at 3 Month Intervals [ Time Frame: at 3 month intervals up to 18 moths ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quality of Life (Standardized Questionnaire) at Three-month Intervals in Comparison With the Start of the Study [ Time Frame: at three-month intervals ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Survival [ Time Frame: at least on a monthly basis ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Therapy-naive patients with histologically confirmed diagnosis of a locally inoperable or metastasized well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor of the midgut
  • curative surgery impossible
  • two-dimensional tumor formation assessable by Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Age ≥ 18
  • Karnofsky-index > 60
  • written informed consent
  • proliferation index for Ki67

Exclusion Criteria:

  • hypersensitivity to octreotide
  • poorly differentiated or small cell neuroendocrine tumors
  • primary tumor outside of the midgut
  • prior treatment with somatostatin-analogue > 4 weeks
  • prior treatment with alpha-interferon, chemotherapy, or chemoembolisation
  • participation in any other clinical trial
  • pregnancy or lactation
  • no secondary malignancy in anamnesis; with the exception of patients without any manifestation of the secondary malignancy (without relapse) after curative therapy within the last five years
  • severe decompensated organ malfunction (heart-, liver- insufficiency)

Other protocol-defined exclusion criteria may apply.
