#1666 Prognosis and Incidence in Pancreatic and Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms with Emphasis on “NET G3”: An Analysis of 198 Cases from Japan
Introduction: Prognostic impact of well differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PanNENs) with a Ki67 >20%, provisionally called NET G3, needs to be validated and compared to poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). Moreover, the frequency of NET G3 among gastrointestinal NENs (GI-NENs) has so far not been studied.

#2121 Phase II Study of Temozolomide Monotherapy in Patients of Neuroendocrine Carcinoma with Resistant to Platinum-Based Chemotherapy
Introduction: Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) (high grade Ki67 > 20%) were poor prognostic and lethal disease. Platinum-based chemotherapy is usually chosen as a first line treatment for advanced NEC, however, this efficacy is temporary and there is no standard second-line treatment yet. Temozolomide is a good candidate, however it was not approved for NEC by Japanese authorities.

#2167 Evaluation of Streptozocin-Based Chemotherapeutic Regimens for Advanced Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Multi-Center Clinical Study in Japan
Introduction: Streptozocin (STZ) has been used as a key drug against advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs). The standard in many countries is a daily STZ regimen combined with 5-fluorouracil administered once daily for 5 days every 6 weeks. However, in Japan, STZ was only covered by insurance beginning in 2015, and STZ is often used as monotherapy, as either a daily or a weekly regimen. There are few reports on STZ monotherapy for pNETs.
