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%).

#1191 Efficacy of Lanreotide versus Follow-up in Early-stage Duodeno-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Related to Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 (MEN1): Preliminary Data
Introduction: Surgery is the only curative approach for NETs, representing the first-line therapy. As most pts with MEN1 have multiple duodeno-pancreatic NETs, cure is generally not possible, unless to adopt radical surgery. Somatostatin analogues (SSAs) represent one of the main therapeutic option in functioning well-differentiated NETs. There are no perspective studies focusing on MEN1-related NETs.
