Antiproliferative Effect of Lanreotide in Low Grade Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Two Case Reports Abstract #1085

Introduction: Somatostatin analogs are used for control of symptoms due to hormonal hypersecretion by neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN). Their antiproliferative effect only recently became evident. Data on pancreatic NEN (pNEN) are limited.
Aim(s): We present patients with pNEN that received Lanreotide.

#2124 A Case Report of a Malignant Insulinoma
Introduction: Despite rare (1-2% of pancreatic tumors/PT), insulinomas are the most common functional pNET. The diagnosis is established by demonstrating inappropriately high serum insulin levels during a spontaneous or induced episode of hypoglycemia.

#2891 Bone Metastases and Skeletal Related Events in Patients with Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NEN): The Role of Zoledronic Acid
Introduction: The incidence of bone metastases (BM) in patients with NENs is 12-25%, and skeletal related events (SREs) occur in up to 21% of affected cases. Data about the efficacy of bisphosphonates in NEN patients (pts) with BM are limited.

#3021 Homecare Service for Administration of Lanreotide Autogel Injections: Assessment of Patients’ Experience
Introduction: In the past, all Neuroendocrine Neoplasm (NEN) patients (pts) on long-acting somatostatin analogues (SA), had to attend local hospitals/clinics to have them administered by nurses/doctors. Recently, a “homecare service” was developed, allowing pts to have their injections delivered to their home and injections were either administered by themselves, their partner or a Specialist Nurse (SN).

#3080 Impact of Multimodal Perioperative Treatment in Patients with Resected Non-Metastatic Grade 3 Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NEN G3)
Introduction: Patients with grade 3 neuroendocrine neoplasm (NEN G3) have a limited prognosis. Even in a non-metastatic stage, the risk of recurrence after surgery is high. Multimodal perioperative treatment, including chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy in an adjuvant or neoadjuvant setting, has improved the prognosis in numerous tumor entities; however, it has not been systematically evaluated in NEN G3 so far. Nevertheless, perioperative chemotherapy is generally recommended in most current treatment guidelines for NEN G3.
