Evaluation of Streptozocin-Based Chemotherapeutic Regimens for Advanced Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Multi-Center Clinical Study in Japan Abstract #2167

Introduction: Streptozocin (STZ) has been used as a key drug against advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs). The standard in many countries is a daily STZ regimen combined with 5-fluorouracil administered once daily for 5 days every 6 weeks. However, in Japan, STZ was only covered by insurance beginning in 2015, and STZ is often used as monotherapy, as either a daily or a weekly regimen. There are few reports on STZ monotherapy for pNETs.
Aim(s): We examined the usage, efficacy, and safety of STZ for pNETs in Japanese patients in this study.
Materials and methods: We conducted a multi-center retrospective study across 25 facilities in Japan, and examined the efficacy and safety of STZ regimens and their effect on progression-free survival (PFS).
