Lymph Node Involvement to Predict Survival in Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Tumors – A Single Center Experience Abstract #843

Introduction: Typical (TC) and Atypical carcinoid (AC) tumors are well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors of the lung.
Aim(s): This study aimed to examine lymph node (LN) status and Ki-67 scores as prognostic markers in TC and AC tumors.
Materials and methods: We retrospectively reviewed 94 patients treated at the Christie Hospital between 2005-2013. All cases were identified as either TC or AC as per WHO criteria. Median follow-up time was 21 months. The Chi-square test and cox proportional hazard regression model was used for statistical analysis.

#2017 Data on Healthcare Resource Utilization (HCRU) and Treatment Modalities in Patients (Pts) with Advanced (adv), Well-Differentiated (WD) Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) of Gastrointestinal (GI) or Lung Origin in Finland
Introduction: The majority of all NETs develop in the GI tract and about one third develop in the lungs; approximately 43% and 51% of pts, respectively, are diagnosed with adv disease (regional or distant metastasis). While GI and lung NETs are rare, their incidence has increased markedly over the past four decades. The severe and progressive nature of adv NET suggests significant costs for pts and payers.

Introduction: Cushing's syndrome has an incidence of 0.7 - 2.4 per million people per year. In 15% of cases, it’s associated with non-pituitary tumors secreting ACTH. Pheochromocytoma accounts for 5% of ectopic ACTH secretion.

#2151 Therapeutic Efficacy of Platinum/Etoposide Regimens in the Treatment of Advanced Poor Differentiated Neuroendocrine Carcinomas of the Lung: A Retrospective Analysis
Introduction: Advanced neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) of the lung are associated with a dismal prognosis and are commonly treated with platinum/etoposide (P/E) regimens. However, few studies evaluated their impact in lung NEC and it is still unclear whether the outcome of such patients (pts) has been improved over the past years (yrs).
