Direct Cost of Metastatic Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NET) Grade 1 or 2 (G1/G2) in Relation to Time Since Diagnosis Shows Growing Importance of Somatostatin Analogues (SSA) Abstract #2104

Introduction: Metastatic GEP-NET G1/G2 incurs large costs on the Swedish health care system.
Aim(s): To describe direct costs since time of diagnosis, for patients with metastatic GEP-NET G1/G2 in Sweden.
Materials and methods: Data was obtained via linkage of nationwide registers. Patients diagnosed between 1Jul2005 and 31Dec2007 in Sweden and with a follow-up of at least six years were included (n=115). Health care costs and pharmacological costs (SSA, interferon-alpha [IFN], chemotherapy, and targeted therapies) were assessed.
