Management of Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors: Case Presentations Including Long-term, Open-label Pasireotide Abstract #678

Introduction: The somatostatin analog (SSA) pasireotide long-acting release (pasireotide LAR) is under investigation for the treatment of patients (pts) with NET and carcinoid disease refractory or resistant to available SSA.
Aim(s): To present three cases with progressive NET on octreotide long-acting repeatable (octreotide LAR) and long-term stable disease while receiving pasireotide LAR.
Materials and methods: Pt A; aged 42 y, Asian man, low-grade small bowel NET diagnosed in 6/2001. Administered interferon starting 2/2003 for 49 mo; octreotide LAR (30 mg IM q28d) starting 1/2002 for 16 mo, increased to 60 mg IM q28d 5/2003 for 47 mo. Pt B; aged 75 y, Caucasian woman, low-grade small intestinal NET diagnosed in 1/2006. Administered octreotide LAR (100 µg IM) starting 5/2006 for 11 mo. Pt C; aged 50 y, Caucasian woman, low-grade small intestinal NET diagnosed in 8/2006. Received octreotide LAR (60 mg IM q28d) starting 11/2006 for five mo.

#2691 Somatostatin Analogs in Patients with Zollinger Ellison Syndrome (ZES): An Observational Study
Introduction: Zollinger Ellison syndrome (ZES) is a rare syndrome caused by gastrin hypersecretion from a primary neuroendocrine tumor (NET), usually located within the duodenum or into the pancreas. Gastrinomas have two important treatment goal: the control of the gastrin-excess state and the control of tumor growth.

#2703 Carcinoid Heart Disease: A Retrospective Study and a Multidisciplinary Proposal of a New Algorithm
Introduction: Development of carcinoid heart disease (CHD) is the major negative prognostic factor in patients with the carcinoid syndrome. The only effective treatment is valve replacement. However, the selection of candidates and determination of optimal timing remain unclear. Considerable variability in local treatment strategies exist

#2833 Surgical Correction of Carcinoid Heart Disease Improves Liver Function and 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid Levels
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours of the gastrointestinal tract cause carcinoid syndrome and carcinoid heart disease. These tumours secrete serotonin, which can bind to heart valves and cause fibrosis and valve incompetence. Most cases involve the tricuspid valve +/- pulmonary valve. Medical management comprises diuretics for fluid overload and somatostatin analogues to reduce circulating serotonin. Definitive treatment is heart-valve replacement surgery which improves exercise tolerance but has high perioperative mortality. We have previously reported that valve-replacement surgery can reduce 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) levels, reflecting a decline in hormone activity.

#2840 A Real-World Study of Patients with Carcinoid Syndrome at King’s College Hospital on Long-Term Telotristat Therapy
Introduction: Telotristat ethyl is a tryptophan hydroxylase inhibitor that has been shown to be effective against symptoms of carcinoid syndrome refractory to standard somatostatin analogue therapy by directly inhibiting serotonin production. While clinical trials have established short-term efficacy of the drug, we report an exploratory real-world study of 15 patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumours on long-term Telotristat (median duration=8 months).

#2909 Serotonin-Secreting NeuroEndocrine Neoplasms of the Pancreas: Which Are the Primary Pancreatic Carcinoids?
Introduction: Serotonin-secreting pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (5-HT-secreting pNENs) are very rare. They are characterised by high urinary 5-hydroxyindole-acetic acid (5-HIAA) levels (or high serum 5-HT levels).
