Efficacy of Oral Chemotherapy with Capecitabine and Temozolomide (Captem) in Patients with Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETS). A Single-Institution Experience Abstract #2247

Introduction: CapTem chemotherapy regimen is a standard treatment for NETs but limited scientific data on its efficacy and tolerability are available
Aim(s): This retrospective analysis evaluated all patients (pts)with metastatic NETs treated with CapTem regimen at our hospital from April 2013 to November 2017
Materials and methods: The schedule used included capecitabine 600 mg/m2/ BID (capped at 1,000 mg BID total dose) on days 1–14 and temozolomide 75 mg/m2/BID on days 10–14 every 28 days, according to the regimen published by Fine RL et al.(Cancer Chemother Pharmacol, 2013).Overall survival (OS),progression free survival (PFS),overall response rate (ORR)and toxicities were retrospectively evaluated

#2136 Combination of Capecitabine and Temozolomide for Advanced Thymic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: In vitro data indicate that the combination of capecitabine(CAP) and temozolomide(TEM) is synergistic for induction of apoptosis in neuroendocrine tumor cell lines. It has been proven that the CAPTEM regimen is associated with an exceptionally high and durable response rate in patients with metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. However, there is less evidence to illustrate if the CAPTEM regimen is effective for thymic neuroendorine tumors(TNET).

#2250 Treatment Outcomes of Patients with Mixed Neuroendocrine Non-Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (MiNEN)
Introduction: Mixed neuroendocrine non-neuroendocrine neoplasms (MiNEN) have been newly defined in the WHO 2017 classification. They are rare tumors, commonly treated in analogy to their non-neuroendocrine (nNE) or neuroendocrine (NE) component without systematic data regarding the optimal therapeutic strategy.

#161 Low Dose Multiple Cycle (LD/MT) Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy: a new concept for the treatment of well-differentiated metastatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: It has been shown experimentally that low dose radiation can effectively kill slow growing cancer cells. Also, external beam radiation therapy applies a fractionated delivery of radiation dose to reduce toxicity with equal or even better therapeutic efficacy.
