Among Dr. Das’s research projects is designing studies for patients with NETs and NECs, utilizing the impairment of DNA damage repair to create new treatment strategies for gastrointestinal cancers and assessing when to optimally sequence PRRT. Clinically, Dr. Das takes care of patients with advanced GI malignancies with a specific interest in those with neuroendocrine tumors and colorectal, pancreatic, and gastric adenocarcinoma. NET patients make up more than 60% of Dr. Das’s practice.

Dr. Das is a co-author on a just-published article in JAMA Open Network, “External Validation of a Clinical Score for Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors Under Consideration for Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy,” https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2788218. This article reports on a Clinical Score (CS), which is the initial prognostic score to help NET patients with well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors to estimate the benefit from peptide receptor radionuclide therapy, PRRT.
