Antitumor Efficacy of Temozolomide in Patients with Metastatic Pulmonary Carcinoids Abstract #1537

Introduction: Temodal (TMZ) is an oral alternative to dacarbazine.
Aim(s): The aim of this study was to retrospectively analyze the efficacy and safety of TMZ in patients with metastatic pulmonary carcinoids (mPC).
Materials and methods: 34 patients pathologically reviewed mPC according to the WHO criteria, referred to Gustave Roussy from 1993 to 2014 were included. Treatment was given at a dose of 150 mg/m2/day for 5 days (D1=D28), escalated to 200 mg/m2/day if well tolerated. Disease control rate, according to RECIST at 12 months was the primary endpoint. DCR was compared in patients who received both oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy (O-BC) i.e gemox or folfox, and dacarbazine (TMZ or deticene/DTIC-BC) in a subgroup of 16 patients referred to Gustave Roussy or Hospices Civils of Lyon.

Introduction: Pulmonary carcinoids are a rare type of malignant lung tumour. Surgery forms the mainstay of management when operable. However, there is paucity of data on conservative management and effective follow-up strategies.

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors are rare understudied diseases at the molecular level, especially those occurring in sites outside the lung and the gastrointestinal track. This lack of knowledge has strong implications for the clinical management of these diseases (Rindi et al. Mad Pathol 2018).

#3015 Biopsy Specimen Diagnosis in Pulmonary Carcinoids, A Shot in the Dark
Introduction: Pulmonary carcinoids (PCs) are rare well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors, which can be separated into typical carcinoid (TC) and atypical carcinoid (AC). Advised treatment for local carcinoid disease is surgical resection using lobectomy, while parenchymal saving strategies such as sub-lobar or endobronchial resection might be considered for TC. In general, pre-operative diagnosis using a (transbronchial/transthoracic) biopsy sample is performed to demonstrate malignancy. However, TC and AC classification can solely be performed on surgical resection specimens, which may challenge pre-operative treatment decisions.
