First-Line Chemotherapy in Patients with Metastatic Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (GEP-NEC): A Retrospective Analysis Abstract #1102

Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasia (GEP-NENs) are divided on the basis of Ki67 status into G1-G2 neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) (Ki67 <20%) and neuroendocrine carcinoma (NECs) (Ki67 >20% ). NEC patients generally have a poor prognosis and the first choice treatment is chemotherapy.A cisplatin/etoposide combination is often used as NECs are considered clinically similar to small cell lung cancer (SCLC), but no literature data is available. There is some evidence to suggest that carboplatin may also be effective in metastatic SCLC.
Aim(s): Assess the efficacy of these combination in mGEP-NEC patients
Materials and methods: We retrospectively evaluated 20 cases of metastatic GEP-NECs classified according to WHO 2010 and treated with cisplatin 25 mg/m2 on days 1-3 or carboplatin 300 mg/m2 on day 1 followed by etoposide 100 mg/m2 on days 1-3, every 21 days.

Introduction: Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) are a rare subgroup of neuroendocrine neoplasms that occasionally originate from gastro-entero-pancreatic (GEP) tract. Owing to their low incidence, evidences of the effectiveness of chemotherapy are scarce. Analogously to small cell lung cancer, platinum plus etoposide (Vp16) regimens are currently the standard treatment in first-line, while little data are available on the role of second-line treatment.
