Clinical Characteristics and Treatment Outcome of Advanced G3 Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (GEP-NEC)- A Retrospective Analysis Abstract #1781

Introduction: Advanced poorly differentiated GEP-NEC are uncommon neoplasms and treated mainly with platinum-based chemotherapy associated with etoposide.
Aim(s): To assess the clinical characteristics and various predicting factors.
Materials and methods: 10 patients with advanced GEP-NEC, with ki 76 index above 20% treated in our center in the last 8 years were reviewed. Data about site of the primary tumor, presence of metastasis, alkaline phosphatase (ALKP) value and neutrophil/lymphocytes ratio and survival were collected.

#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.

#2266 Prognostic Value of the Different Pre-Treatment Biomarkers for Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Several inflammatory response materials could be used for prediction of prognosis in cancer patients. The neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet lymphocyte ratio (PLR), thrombocytosis (the platelets number >400*103/mm3) have been introduced for prognostic scoring system in various cancers.

Introduction: Patients with well-differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) often present with metastatic disease at the time of diagnosis when curative surgery is not feasible. A variety of systemic therapeutic options exist, but the best strategy is still unknown.

#2189 Perioperative Chemotherapy in Resectable Neuroendocrine Carcinomas of the Digestive Tract
Introduction: Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC), of the digestive tract are rare and aggressive tumours. In localised disease, the treatment is surgery, followed by administration of adjuvant chemotherapy combining etoposide and platinum salts, justified by the high risk of secondary metastasis. No clinical study has proven the benefit of chemotherapy, and recommendations are based on expert consensus.
