Clinical Effect of Temozolomide-Based Chemotherapy in Poorly Differentiated Endocrine Carcinoma (PDEC) after Progression on First-Line Chemotherapy Abstract #314

Introduction: Patients with metastatic PDEC usually have a short survival. After first-line palliative chemotherapy, there are no established second-line treatments. Temozolomide has shown effect in other NETs.
Aim(s): This study was performed to evaluate the effect of temozolomide-based chemotherapy in PDEC patients who had progressed on first-line treatment.
Materials and methods: In this retrospective study, 25 patients with PDEC (mainly gastrointestinal) were treated with temozolomide alone or in combination with capecitabine. A subset of patients also received bevacizumab. MGMT methylation was analysed in tissue specimens.
