Bone Metastases and Skeletal Related Events in Patients with Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NEN): The Role of Zoledronic Acid Abstract #2891

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.
Aim(s): To evaluate SREs and their outcomes in NEN pts with BM, treated with zoledronic acid (ZA).
Materials and methods: The diagnosis of NEN BM was based on molecular and/or cross-sectional imaging. Eligible pts received at least 2 cycles of ZA and time to first SRE was defined as presence of a pathological fracture, and/or need for spinal surgery and/or external beam radiotherapy (EBR) for pain control or spinal cord compression. Time to SRE and overall survival (OS) were estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method.

#1912 Skeletal-Related Events (SREs) and Use of Antiresorptive Therapy (ART) in Patients with Bone Metastases of Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: Antiresorptive therapy (ART) with bisphosphonates or denosumab is effective in preventing skeletal-related events (SREs) in patients with bone metastases (BM). In neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN), BM are a negative prognostic factor, however tend to be asymptomatic and SREs are considered rare. The role of ART in preventing SREs in NEN has not been investigated so far.

#1271 Bone Metastases in NEN Patients - Frequency, Clinical, Therapeutic and Prognostic Relevance
Introduction: Up to 73% of patients with neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) present with distant metastases at diagnosis. Advanced stage negatively correlates with prognosis. Bone metastases (BM) are usually reported in less than 10% of patients. Improved imaging results in more frequent detection but information in general is very limited.
