Clinical Characteristics and Overall Survival of Large Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (LCNEC) Compared to Other Subtypes of Lung Cancer: Results of a Population-based Registry Abstract #1192

Introduction: LCNEC is a rare non-small cell lung cancer subtype and clinical behavior is unclear.
Aim(s): To analyze incidence, patient (pt) characteristics, metastatic pattern and overall survival (OS) of LCNEC and compare data with small-cell (SCLC), squamous cell (SqCC) and adenocarcinomas (AdC).
Materials and methods: Histologically confirmed LCNEC, SCLC, SqCC and AdC cases diagnosed between 2003-2012 were selected from the Netherlands Cancer Registry. Cohorts of stage I-II, III and IV disease were compared for pt characteristics, metastasis at diagnosis (≥2006) and OS. Multivariate Cox regression was performed; if non-proportional, time dependent Hazard ratios (HR) were reported.

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

#2151 Therapeutic Efficacy of Platinum/Etoposide Regimens in the Treatment of Advanced Poor Differentiated Neuroendocrine Carcinomas of the Lung: A Retrospective Analysis
Introduction: Advanced neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) of the lung are associated with a dismal prognosis and are commonly treated with platinum/etoposide (P/E) regimens. However, few studies evaluated their impact in lung NEC and it is still unclear whether the outcome of such patients (pts) has been improved over the past years (yrs).

#886 Expression Patterns of Cellular Retinoic Acid Binding Protein-I in Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Lung: A Pilot Immunohistochemical Study
Introduction: Cellular retinoic acid binding protein-I (CRABP-I), a member of the lipid-binding proteins family, plays an important role in retinoic acid-mediated cell proliferation and is essential for the development of various malignant neoplasms. The actual role of CRABP-I in tumor progression remains unknown.
