Clinical Features and Treatment of GEP NETs in a Spanish Hospital Through 8 Years Abstract #639

Introduction: There are discrepancies in Gastroenteropancreatic NETs (GEPNET) incidence, characteristics and patterns of care among institutional registries and countries.
Aim(s): To analyze the epidemiology and treatment of GEPNETs in a reference hospital for Asturias, a Spanish region of 1 million inhabitants.
Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of 217 patients (median age 66, 57% males) with metastatic GEPNET attended in a Medical Oncology Department from 2005 to 2012. Data was obtained from the National Cancer Registry for GEPNETs (RGETNE) launched by the Spanish Scientific Society of NETs (GETNE).

Introduction: Phase III trials of sunitinib, everolimus and octreotide lar confirmed that these drugs improved progression-free survival (PFS) in well-differentiated PNET, low/intermediate grade pNET and well-differentiated midgut NETs, respectively. CLARINET is the 1st phase III study that showed PFS benefit of SSA, lanreotide, in both P- and midgut NET and in Ki-67 5-10%.
