About Neuroendocrine Tumors
Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) associated with the gastrointestinal tract have endocrine secretory properties and a propensity for metastasis to the lungs, bronchi, and liver. Metastatic neuroendocrine tumors located in the midgut and liver often secrete vasoactive products, giving rise to symptoms such as flushing and diarrhea, wheezing, abdominal cramps, and peripheral oedema.
Provectus' lead investigational oncology drug product, PV-10, the first small molecule oncolytic immunotherapy, can induce immunogenic cell death. PV-10 is undergoing clinical study for adult solid tumor cancers, like melanoma and cancers of the liver, and preclinical study for pediatric cancers.
