Chemotherapy for Pulmonary Large Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinomas: Does the Regimen Matter? Abstract #1778

Introduction: Metastatic pulmonary large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) is a rare disease and the most effective chemotherapy regimen is debated, i.e. small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) or non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) chemotherapy.
Aim(s): To analyze chemotherapeutic treatment for LCNEC on a population basis.
Materials and methods: The Netherlands pathology registry (PALGA) and cancer registry (IKNL) were searched for patients with LCNEC diagnosed between 2003-2012. In 207 patients tumour slides were available for panel-revision. Data on clinical characteristics and chemotherapy were retrieved. First-line platinum combined chemotherapy was clustered: 1) gemcitabine, docetaxel, paclitaxel or vinorelbine as NSCLC type, 2) pemetrexed as pem-NSCLC type, and 3) etoposide as SCLC type.

#653 Interobserver Variability of Pulmonary Carcinoids
Introduction: Lung carcinoids are neuroendocrine tumors histopathologically classified into typical (TC; no necrosis, <2 mitoses/2 mm2) and atypical (AC; necrosis or 2-10 mitoses/2 mm2). Identification of mitoses may be hampered by the presence of apoptotic cells, and reported prediction of prognosis based on histopathology varies, especially for ACs.

#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.

#1102 First-Line Chemotherapy in Patients with Metastatic Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (GEP-NEC): A Retrospective Analysis
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasia (GEP-NENs) are divided on the basis of Ki67 status into G1-G2 neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) (Ki67 <20%) and neuroendocrine carcinoma (NECs) (Ki67 >20% ). NEC patients generally have a poor prognosis and the first choice treatment is chemotherapy.A cisplatin/etoposide combination is often used as NECs are considered clinically similar to small cell lung cancer (SCLC), but no literature data is available. There is some evidence to suggest that carboplatin may also be effective in metastatic SCLC.
