Neuroendocrine Carcinomas (NEC) of the Pancreas: A Land of Hope? Abstract #515

Introduction: Poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) of the pancreas are historically associated with poor prognosis. Contemporary data regarding their treatment and survival are scant.
Aim(s): To evaluate treatment and survival of pancreatic NEC.
Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of 49 patients with NEC defined by the 2010 WHO classification observed between 1990 and 2011.

Introduction: Because of the low incidence, nonspecific symptoms at presentation, lack of awareness, and non-uniform classifications, gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) remains a poorly understood disease, and delayed diagnosis is common among patients with GEP-NETs.

Introduction: The 2019 WHO subclassified the grade 3 (G3) gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) into neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) or tumors (G3 NET). Yet, few data exist on clinical and treatment profiles for G3 NET.

#2864 Irinotecan-Based Regimens for the Second-Line Treatment of Extrapulmonary Poorly Differentiated Neuroendocrine Carcinomas: A Monocentric Experience
Introduction: Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) are a rare subgroup of neuroendocrine neoplasms that occasionally originate from gastro-entero-pancreatic (GEP) tract. Owing to their low incidence, evidences of the effectiveness of chemotherapy are scarce. Analogously to small cell lung cancer, platinum plus etoposide (Vp16) regimens are currently the standard treatment in first-line, while little data are available on the role of second-line treatment.
