statin LAR). Patients can also suffer from welts that take a considerable period of time to disappear.

Furthermore, the octreotide long-acting injections require complex reconstitution and caregivers' assistance, frequently necessitating visits to physician offices.

The pool of patients eligible for Octreolin treatment is estimated to be between 10,000 and 15,000 in the US and an equal number in Europe.

In the acute setting (during a bleeding event), patients may undergo a surgical procedure known as band ligation and receive an IV infusion of octreotide to reduce portal hypertension.
