Association between Dose of Octreotide and Tumor Control in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #909

Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) represent a heterogeneous group of tumors. Octreotide is used in the symptom control of NETs. The PROMID study demonstrated a benefit of octreotide on disease stabilization in midgut NETs, but a survival analysis was not possible due to insufficient events.
Aim(s): To determine if dose of octreotide correlates with outcomes.
Materials and methods: We reviewed all patients who were diagnosed between 1987-2013 and treated with octreotide at the BC Cancer Agency. We compared overall survival in patients who received low v. high dose octreotide.

#2017 Data on Healthcare Resource Utilization (HCRU) and Treatment Modalities in Patients (Pts) with Advanced (adv), Well-Differentiated (WD) Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) of Gastrointestinal (GI) or Lung Origin in Finland
Introduction: The majority of all NETs develop in the GI tract and about one third develop in the lungs; approximately 43% and 51% of pts, respectively, are diagnosed with adv disease (regional or distant metastasis). While GI and lung NETs are rare, their incidence has increased markedly over the past four decades. The severe and progressive nature of adv NET suggests significant costs for pts and payers.
