Is There an Additional Value of Somatostatin Receptor Subtype 2A Immunohistochemistry Over Somatostatin Receptor Scintigraphy in Predicting Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Response? Abstract #1118

Introduction: It is not known whether tumoral somatostatin receptor subtype 2a (sst2a) immunohistochemistry (IHC) has additional value over OctreoScan® uptake in predicting response to PRRT in patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs).
Aim(s): The aims were to: 1) establish sst2a positivity in GEP-NET samples of patients who had been treated with PRRT using 177Lu-octreotate, 2) determine the relationship between GEP-NET response to PRRT and tumoral sst2a expression, and 3) compare patients characteristics with sst2a negative and positive tumors.
Materials and methods: We have selected 75 consecutive GEP-NET patients who had undergone PRRT using 177Lu-octreotate and who had follow-up by computed tomography (CT). Tumoral sst2a expression was determined by IHC. Tumor response to CT scans was scored according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria.

#467 Thoracic and Gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) and Ectopic Adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) Syndrome (EAS)
Introduction: Ectopic Adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) Syndrome (EAS) is associated with a variety of malignancies, mostly of neuroendocrine origin. Several series report on the relative contribution of EAS in the spectrum of Cushing’s syndrome. However, information on the incidence/prevalence of EAS in the setting of patients diagnosed with thoracic or gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) is virtually absent.

#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.
