Activity of Bevacizumab in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Abstract #2265

Introduction: The combination of the anti-VEGF antibody bevacizumab (BEV) with a multitude of other antineoplastic substances has shown promising activity in neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN). However, data proving the superiority of BEV-containing vs. BEV-free protocols are lacking.
Aim(s): To evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of BEV-containing protocols in NEN.
Materials and methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of all NEN patients who were treated with BEV-containing protocols at our center between August 2008 and November 2017.

#151 Rationale for combining mTOR with other targeted agents in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Advanced neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are aggressive and incurable with standard treatment. Many cellular targets are being evaluated in this patient population, including mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a kinase that is the central regulator of several signaling pathways related to cell growth, angiogenesis, and bioenergetics. Because mTOR serves as a neoplastic switch activated by many cancer-related mutations, mTOR inhibition may have broad efficacy across tumor types, including NETs. Somatostatin analogs (SSAs) have long been used to treat carcinoid symptoms in NET patients. The SSA octreotide long-acting release (LAR) demonstrated significant antitumor effects against advanced midgut NETs in the phase III PROMID study.

#974 Topotecan in Pretreated Metastatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma
Introduction: Therapeutic options for metastatic poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) after prior platinum-based chemotherapy are limited. Topotecan is an approved second line chemotherapy for small cell lung cancer (SCLC). NEC is often considered to show a biological behavior similar to SCLC.
