Telotristat Etiprate for Carcinoid Syndrome Therapy
Carcinoid syndrome occurs when carcinoid tumors produce too many hormones and other substances that normally circulate throughout your body. The most common symptoms of carcinoid syndrome are diarrhea and redness (flushing) of the face, chest, or back. Other symptoms include changes in the structure of the heart valves that can impair theheart's function (heart valvular lesions) and abdominal pain and cramping. The purpose of this study is to evaluate an investigational drug called LX1606, developed by Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Specifically, the study will test whether two different dose levels of LX1606 (250 mg or 500 mg, each given three times daily) improve control of symptoms and are safe in patients with carcinoid syndrome.
