Cervical Dystonia

Cervical dystonia is a side effect which causes neck muscles to contract on their own causing abnormal movements and abnormal posture of the head and neck.

Lanreotide (Somatuline® Depot)

Lanreotide is similar to somatostatin, a hormone that occurs naturally in the body. It is used to treat carcinoid syndrome, which can occur in patients with carcinoid or neuroendocrine tumors. These tumors cause the body to overproduce certain hormones, and these hormones in turn can lead to symptoms, such as flushing, racing heart, and diarrhea. The combination of these symptoms are known as “carcinoid syndrome”.

Radiation Fibrosis Syndrome

Radiation fibrosis syndrome is a common late side effect of radiation in the treatment of head and neck cancer.
