Survival Related to Treatment of Patients with Metastatic Neuroendocrine Lung Tumors Treated in a Brazilian Center


Introduction: Well-differentiated Neuroendocrine Pulmonary Tumors (NETp) are morphologically classified as Typical (TC) and Atypical Carcinoid (AC).

Aim(s): There are few data on systemic treatment outcomes according to cell morphology.

Materials and methods: We selected consecutive metastatic patients (pts) with TC or AC treated from 2002 to 2019. All Pts selected had a confirmed diagnosis of TC or AC and received at least one treatment modality (e.g. somatostatin analogue [SSA], chemotherapy [ChT] and everolimus [Eve]). Variables were analyzed with the chi-square test and median progression-free survival (mPFS) in months, the primary endpoint, with the Kaplan-Meyer method.
