Octreotate-Lu-177-DOTA-Tyr-3 Reactions 1680, p263 - 2 Dec 2017 Thrombocytopenia: case report In a retrospective cohort analysis of 167 patients, a patient [age and sex not stated] was described, who developed thrombocytopenia during treatment with octreotate- Lu-177-DOTA-Tyr-3 [ Lu-DOTATATE; duration of treatment to reaction onset not stated]. The patient, who had advanced neuroendocrine tumour, received treatment with 5550 to 7400 MBq (150 200 mCi) of octreotate-Lu-177-DOTA-Tyr-3 diluted in 48 to 50mL of sodium chloride [saline] and infused over 30 minutes with a flow rate of 1.6 mL/minute. The patient received octreotate- Lu-177-DOTA-Tyr-3 after 30 to 60 minutes from the start of amino acid infusion. Before the initiation of treatment, the patient had grade I thrombocytopenia. However, during the course of therapy, the patient exhibited further depletion in the platelet counts (86000 48000 /µL), which was considered as grade III thrombocytopenia. The patient’s decreased platelet count was managed with platelet transfusion. Author comment: "Treatment-related adverse events were analyzed in all the patients." "One patient presented with grade I thrombocytopenia at the time of recruitment and progressed to grade III toxicity." "The platelet counts in this patient were revived through platelet transfusion."
