Everolimus Treatment in a Series of Patients with Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #765

Introduction: Everolimus is an oral mTOR inhibitor that exerts antineoplastic effects inhibiting cell proliferation, survival and angiogenesis. Its activity in advanced neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) has been demonstrated in controlled trials and everolimus was approved by the FDA for the treatment of progressive, advanced pNETs in May 2011.
Aim(s):
Materials and methods: We treated with everolimus, at the dosage of 10 mg once daily, 14 patients with advanced, progressive, low or intermediate-grade NETs for a mean period of 11 months. Somatostatin analogues treatment was continued in all patients. 12/14 patients had previously undergone Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT).

#712 A Retrospective Analysis of Safety and Efficacy of Everolimus in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (GEP-NET) Patients That Showed Progression after PRRT
Introduction: GEP-NET patients have been treated successfully with SSAs. Upon progression, peptide receptor radiotherapy (PRRT) with 177Lu-octreotate is successful. PRRT is not unlimited. Some patients became refractory after therapy. There is a high medical need. Everolimus (mTOR inhibitor) is a promising therapy for progressive G1/G2 GEP-NETs, with well-established safety. Everolimus has shown efficacy in patients with (non-)PNET (RADIANT-2/-3). However, toxicity data of Everolimus after PRRT is lacking.

Introduction: In metastatic NET G1-G2 progressed after SSA, many treatment are appropriated including EV, CT and PRRT. However, there are no studies guiding the appropriate sequence of treatments.

#301 Medical and Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) with Somatostatin Analogues (SSA) in Well- and Moderately Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: PRRT is a treatment choice for inoperable or metastasized neuroendocrine tumors and this therapy seems more effective in the biochemical and volume control of disease than SSA alone.

#1368 Everolimus in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinomas G3
Introduction: Neuroendocrine Carcinomas (NEC) G3 are heterogeneous diseases with different behaviors, basing on tumor morphology and Ki67 value. Platinum-based chemotherapy is considered the standard treatment in these pts. However, tumors with well-moderately differentiated morphology (NET G3), with Ki67 < 55% may be considered a separate entity in terms of prognosis and therapeutic options
