High-Dose Treatment with Somatostatin Analogs in Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #1187

Introduction: Somatostatin analogs (SSA) effectively control symptoms in neuroendocrine tumours (NET), besides showing antiproliferative activity. In progressive or metastatic NET, increasing SSA dose or shortening the dosing interval are common clinical practice, though empirical.
Aim(s): Aim of this study is to evaluate efficacy and safety of high-dose SSA treatment in pts with progressive disease under standard SSA dose.
Materials and methods: Twenty-one pts (median age 56.8 yrs) with NET of different origin were retrospectively identified among 118 pts under SSA therapy. All 21 pts were treated with SSA high dose schedule treatment, after disease progression under standard dose. The median follow-up was 22.3 months (range 4-76). High dose schedule included octreotide LAR in 15 pts (73%) and lanreotide Autogel in 6 (27%).

#120 Somatostatin receptors 1-5 expression in a large series of well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: For their antisecretive and antiproliferative effect somatostatin analogs (SA) have been used in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), based on the expression of somatostatin receptors (sstRs). The potential availability of new SA for the treatment of patients with NETs suggests a better characterization of sstRs.

#151 Rationale for combining mTOR with other targeted agents in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Advanced neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are aggressive and incurable with standard treatment. Many cellular targets are being evaluated in this patient population, including mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a kinase that is the central regulator of several signaling pathways related to cell growth, angiogenesis, and bioenergetics. Because mTOR serves as a neoplastic switch activated by many cancer-related mutations, mTOR inhibition may have broad efficacy across tumor types, including NETs. Somatostatin analogs (SSAs) have long been used to treat carcinoid symptoms in NET patients. The SSA octreotide long-acting release (LAR) demonstrated significant antitumor effects against advanced midgut NETs in the phase III PROMID study.
