#2112 Relationship between Metabolic Toxicity and Efficacy of Everolimus in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs): A Pooled Analysis from the Randomized, Phase 3 RADIANT-3 and RADIANT-4 Trials

#2136 Combination of Capecitabine and Temozolomide for Advanced Thymic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: In vitro data indicate that the combination of capecitabine(CAP) and temozolomide(TEM) is synergistic for induction of apoptosis in neuroendocrine tumor cell lines. It has been proven that the CAPTEM regimen is associated with an exceptionally high and durable response rate in patients with metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. However, there is less evidence to illustrate if the CAPTEM regimen is effective for thymic neuroendorine tumors(TNET).

#712 A Retrospective Analysis of Safety and Efficacy of Everolimus in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (GEP-NET) Patients That Showed Progression after PRRT
Introduction: GEP-NET patients have been treated successfully with SSAs. Upon progression, peptide receptor radiotherapy (PRRT) with 177Lu-octreotate is successful. PRRT is not unlimited. Some patients became refractory after therapy. There is a high medical need. Everolimus (mTOR inhibitor) is a promising therapy for progressive G1/G2 GEP-NETs, with well-established safety. Everolimus has shown efficacy in patients with (non-)PNET (RADIANT-2/-3). However, toxicity data of Everolimus after PRRT is lacking.

#926 Transarterial (Chemo)embolization for Patients with Liver Metastasis of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) are slowly growing tumors with an indolent course. NETs often present with liver metastasis, and most of these tumors are inoperable at the time of presentation. Transarterial (chemo)embolization [TA(C)E] is widely available to manage liver metastasis of NET.

#259 Risk of Cardiovascular Events (CV) in Patients Newly Diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET)
Introduction: NETs are malignant neoplasms capable of systemic hormone production. Oversecretion of hormones can result in many different symptoms, including CV events such as CAD, valvular disease and stroke.

#260 Risk of Hepatic and Gastrointestinal (GI) Events in Patients Newly Diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET)
Introduction: NET derives from peptide- and hormone-producing cells scattered throughout the body. In excess, these can lead to many clinical manifestations, including GI events (ex. enteritis, and liver disease).

#131 Efficacy and safety results from a Phase II study of pasireotide (SOM230) in the treatment of patients with metastatic NETs refractory or resistant to octreotide LAR
Introduction: Pasireotide, a multi-receptor targeted somatostatin analogue, has 30-, 5- and 39-fold greater affinity for sst1,3 and sst5 receptors, respectively, and a slightly lower affinity for sst2, than octreotide. Because of this multi-receptor binding profile, pasireotide may be effective in controlling symptoms of carcinoid syndrome in patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) who are no longer responsive to currently available somatostatin analogues.

#154 Long-term disease stabilization in a patient with advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor treated with combined everolimus and octreotide LAR after prior failure of cytotoxic therapy
Introduction: Targeting of multiple pathways has become an important strategy for improved tumor control in metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Among these targets is the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a central regulator of cell growth, proliferation, and apoptosis, which is blocked by everolimus, an oral inhibitor of mTOR that has shown efficacy in patients with metastatic pancreatic NETs. Recent evidence has suggested that suppression of insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) secretion with octreotide therapy, along with concurrent inhibition of mTOR by everolimus, may improve tumor control synergistically by preventing feedback activation of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway.

#490 Effect of Open-Label Everolimus After Disease Progression in Patients with Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumors: A RADIANT-2 Analysis
Introduction: In the RADIANT-2 study (NCT00412061), Everolimus + Octreotide LAR (E+O) resulted in a clinically meaningful increase in median progression-free survival (PFS; by adjudicated central review) of 5.1 months v. placebo + Octreotide LAR (P+O) in patients with advanced NET with a history of carcinoid syndrome. Investigator-assessed PFS was 12.0 months for E+O compared with 8.6 months for P+O, respectively. On radiologically confirmed disease progression, P+O patients could cross over to open-label E+O.
