The angiodysplasias may be responsible for recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding and in some cases bleeding remaining inaccessible to endoscopic treatment. Several observational studies suggest that treatment with somatostatin analogue would reduce transfusion requirements in patients with recurrent bleeding due to angiodysplasia.

No randomized studies are available. The main objective of this study multicenter, prospective, randomized, was to assess the transfusion requirements in patients with recurrent bleeding due to angiodysplasia treated by a new analogue of somatostatin, Pasireotide, versus placebo.

Patients with recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding related to angiodysplasias, endoscopic treatment failure, with a need transfusion at least 6 red blood cells during the 6 months prior to inclusion could be randomized to receive monthly intramuscular injection of Pasireotide 60 mg or placebo for a period of 6 months. Patients were then followed for an additional 6 months after stopping treatment. A test monthly clinical and laboratory was performed during the six months of treatment then quarterly during the six months of surveillance.
