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.

#104 Myocardial motion abnormalities in patients with carcinoid disease without overt carcinoid heart disease
Introduction: Cardiac abnormalities occur in 15-70% of patients with carcinoid disease, typified by fibrosis of the right-sided valves. Myocardial motion abnormalities in subjects without overt carcinoid heart disease have not been previously described. Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI) allows quantative analysis of myocardial motion. We used this technique to investigate whether myocardial motion is reduced, suggesting fibrosis, in patients with carcinoid disease.

#130 Lanreotide Autogel for malignant carcinoid syndrome: an 8-year experience
Introduction: Somatostatin analogues provide symptomatic relief in carcinoid syndrome and recently have been shown to inhibit tumor growth in metastatic gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Lanreotide compounds are reported to have similar efficacy to Octreotide compounds. There is limited long-term data available on Lanreoitde Autogel.

#131 Efficacy and safety results from a Phase II study of pasireotide (SOM230) in the treatment of patients with metastatic NETs refractory or resistant to octreotide LAR
Introduction: Pasireotide, a multi-receptor targeted somatostatin analogue, has 30-, 5- and 39-fold greater affinity for sst1,3 and sst5 receptors, respectively, and a slightly lower affinity for sst2, than octreotide. Because of this multi-receptor binding profile, pasireotide may be effective in controlling symptoms of carcinoid syndrome in patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) who are no longer responsive to currently available somatostatin analogues.

#184 Somatostatin Analogues as a Therapeutic Option in a Series of 91 Patients with Gastric Carcinoids
Introduction: Gastric carcinoid tumors (GC) represent about 10-30% of carcinoid tumors and about 1% of all stomach neoplasms. They include three types : type 1 (70-85%), type 2 (5-10%) and type 3 (15-25%).
