Introduction: High-grade gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (GEP-NENs, G3) are aggressive cancers of the digestive system with poor prognosis and survival. Platinum-based chemotherapy (cisplatin/carboplatin +etoposide) is considered standard first-line palliative treatment. Etoposide is frequently administered intravenously, however oral etoposide is often used as an alternative. Concerns for oral etoposide include decreased bioavailability, inter- & intrapatient variability and patient compliance.
