Phase 1 TheraSphere + Everolimus With Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) + Liver Only or Liver Dominant Disease
The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of the combination of everolimus with TheraSphere that can be given to patients with advanced NETs that have spread to the liver. The safety of everolimus and TheraSphere will also be studied.
Everolimus is designed to block a protein inside the cancer cells, which is also involved in cancer growth.
TheraSphere is a medical device containing a radioactive material called yttrium-90 (Y-90). Tiny glass beads called microspheres are filled with Y-90 and then injected through an artery directly into the liver. This allows a large dose of radiation to be given directly to the tumor, which may lower the risk of side effects from the radiation to other parts of the body and/or to healthy liver tissue. The radiation from TheraSphere stays in the body and begins to lose its effect within 12 days. The glass microspheres will stay in the body from that point on. The radiation will eventually decay (go away). By the time a participant leaves the hospital, the amount of radiation outside of the body will be low enough to not be a threat to others.

|Official Title:||Phase I Study of TheraSphere and Everolimus Among Patients With Neuroendocrine Tumors and Liver Only or Liver Dominant Disease|
- Dose Limiting Toxicities (DLT) for Combination of TheraSphere and Everolimus [ Time Frame: 56 days ]Dose limiting toxicity (DLT) defined as any toxicity occurring during the first 56 days of therapy with definite, possible or probable attribution to TheraSphere and/or Everolimus and meets CTCAE version 4.0 criteria.
|Study Start Date:||May 2014|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||May 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: TheraSphere + Everolimus
Each cycle is 28 days. Target dose of TheraSphere is fixed at 120 Gy to entire tumor bearing portion of liver given at a single session on Cycle 1 Day 15. The dose of everolimus will be escalated in 2 sequential cohorts of 6 TheraSphere-treated patients each. Starting dose of everolimus is 5 mg by mouth daily for cycles 1 and 2. Patients will receive standard dose of Everolimus at 10 mg PO daily starting cycle 3 day 1.
Once DLT is defined or dose level 2 has been completed, a dose expansion cohort of 10 patients with advanced low to intermediate grade neuroendocrine tumor will be enrolled.
At least 1 time a week by phone or at the clinic for up to 30 days after last everolimus dose, study staff will follow up. Patient asked about any side effects they may have had.

Other Names:Other: Phone Call
At least 1 time a week by phone or at the clinic for up to 30 days after last everolimus dose, study staff will follow up. Patient asked about any side effects they may have had. The call should last about 10-15 minutes.
