Medical and Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) with Somatostatin Analogues (SSA) in Well- and Moderately Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #301

Introduction: PRRT is a treatment choice for inoperable or metastasized neuroendocrine tumors and this therapy seems more effective in the biochemical and volume control of disease than SSA alone.
Aim(s): To demonstrate the efficacy of medical therapy with SSA and PRRT in patients with well- and moderately differentiated neuroendocrine tumors.
Materials and methods: We evaluated 55 patients with well- or moderately differentiated neuroendocrine tumors; 31 patients with either metastatic, unresectable or functioning tumors were treated with SSA. Ten of them with metastatic disease or unresectable tumors, all with increased uptake on Octreoscan, underwent PRRT with 90Y or 177Lu.

#765 Everolimus Treatment in a Series of Patients with Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Everolimus is an oral mTOR inhibitor that exerts antineoplastic effects inhibiting cell proliferation, survival and angiogenesis. Its activity in advanced neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) has been demonstrated in controlled trials and everolimus was approved by the FDA for the treatment of progressive, advanced pNETs in May 2011.

#2695 Different Treatment Options for Patients with Advanced Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Low sensitivity to chemotherapy leaves open question of optimal approach to drug therapy of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Somatostatin analogues (SSA) (octreotide, lanreotide) and mTOR inhibitors are successfully used in treatment.

#2723 Achieving Objective Response in Treatment of Non-Resectable Neuroendocrine Tumors Does Not Predict Longer Time to Progression Compared to Achieving Stable Disease
Introduction: There are several treatment modalities for unresectable neuroendocrine tumors. Traditionally the goal of these treatments are to reduce the tumor load; objective response (OR). Less emphasis has been put on inducing the tumors to stop growing without reduction in total tumor load; stable disease (SD).
