Evaluation of the Combination Oxaliplatin and 5-Fluorouracil or Gemcitabine in Patients with Metastatic Lung Carcinoid Tumors Abstract #1080

Introduction: -
Aim(s): The aim of this study was to retrospectively analyse the efficacy of gemox and folfox in the treatment of metastatic lung carcinoid tumors.
Materials and methods: 44 patients were included in two tertiary centres between January 1999 and January 2013 in this retrospective study. Typical, atypical carcinoids or not otherwise specified carcinoids were found in 20%, 54%, and 26%. Patients had synchronous (41%) or metachronous (59%) metastasis disease. 79% were progressive before start of chemotherapy. Treatment consisted of: gemcitabine 1000 mg/m² and oxaliplatin 100 mg/m² every 2 weeks (gemox regimen, n=21) or 5-fluorouracil and oxaliplatin 85 mg/m² (folfox regimen, n=21) every 2 weeks.

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors are rare understudied diseases at the molecular level, especially those occurring in sites outside the lung and the gastrointestinal track. This lack of knowledge has strong implications for the clinical management of these diseases (Rindi et al. Mad Pathol 2018).
