A Medical Food (Enterade) for the Reduction of Bowel Movement Frequency in Patients with Carcinoid Syndrome or Non-Carcinoid Syndrome Neuroendocrine Tumor
This phase II trial studies how well a medical food called enterade works in reducing bowel movement frequency in patients with carcinoid syndrome or non-carcinoid syndrome neuroendocrine tumor. Enterade is a commercially available amino acid-based medical food being developed to manage diarrhea due to carcinoid syndrome or other neuroendocrine tumors. It may also alleviate abdominal pain or discomfort, bloating, cramping and gas secondary to the disease. Enterade may alleviate neuroendocrine tumor associated diarrhea, provide control of bowel-related symptoms, and improve quality of life in neuroendocrine tumor patients with diarrhea.
