Somatostatin Analogs for Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Is There Any Benefit When Ki-67 Is ≥ 10%?


Introduction: The antiproliferative effect of first-line long acting somatostatin analogs (SSA) in advanced gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) was shown in the PROMID and the CLARINET trials. Efficacy data in pancreatic NETs (PanNETs) with Ki-67 ≥ 10% are limited.

Aim(s): To describe the efficacy and toxicity of first-line SSAs in a series of advanced, well-differentiated PanNETs with Ki-67 ≥ 10%.

Materials and methods: Retrospective, multicentre analysis including patients treated between 2014-2018 across 9 centers of the NET CONNECT Network. The primary aim was progression-free survival (PFS); toxicity and overall survival (OS) were secondary aims.
