Octreotide is used for the treatment of growth hormone producing tumors and bleeding esophageal varices. It is also used in nuclear medicine imaging by labelling with indium-111.
Octreotide acetate is a longer acting synthetic octapeptide analog of naturally occurring somatostatin. It inhibits the secretion of gastro-entero-pancreatic peptide hormones and the release of growth hormone.
