Background: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of malignant neoplasms arising from neuroendocrine cells distributed throughout the body. The most common sites of NETs are the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas and lungs. The clinical management of NETs is not standardized, with few FDA-approved therapies. Moreover, drug development has been challenging for NETs due to limited pre-clinical models. To address this unmet need, the NCI Natural History Study of Ch...

Background: Patients with advanced pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma (PPGL) or pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (panNET) are in need of novel targeted therapies. Hypoxia-inducible factor 2α (HIF-2α) is one of the key oncogenic drivers in neuroendocrine tumors. Hypoxia signaling pathway alterations or other mechanisms that stabilize HIFs are common in some PPGLs and panNETs. Belzutifan (MK-6482), a HIF-2α inhibitor, has shown antitumor activity in advanced renal cell...
