Nutritional Status and Considerations for Patients Diagnosed with a Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor: Preliminary Baseline Characteristics from the Nutrition in NETs Study Abstract #2178

Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP NET) cause various symptoms impacting on nutritional status and diet. Published data indicates up to 25% of GEP NET patients are malnourished, and dietary change is prevalent. Further research is required to guide nutrition recommendations.
Aim(s): Nutrition in NETs is a prospective longitudinal study aiming to describe the impact of GEP NETs on patient’s nutritional status and quality of life. Baseline characteristics of study participants are discussed.
Materials and methods: Patients diagnosed with a GEP NET were recruited upon initial attendance to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre (Melbourne, Australia). Recruitment commenced in July 2017 and is ongoing. At baseline, participant demographics and patient-reported outcome data was recorded (dietitian contact, dietary habits, and symptoms). Nutritional status was measured using the patient-generated subjective global assessment (PG-SGA).

#39 Specialist dietetic input and nutritional outcomes in Neuroendocrine Tumour Patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of tumors that are complex to manage and require a multidisciplinary approach. The most common primary sites are the small intestine and pancreas. The disease itself, as well as sequelae from surgery and medical therapy, can have a negative impact on patients’ nutritional status. Weight loss is known to be a poor prognostic indicator.

Introduction: Malnutrition is a clinical relevant problem in NEN-patients (pts) independently influencing overall prognosis, particularly in pts undergoing chemotherapy (CTx). A poor nutritional status (NS) in pts of all WHO-grades was associated with a significantly shorter long-term outcome

#136 Prevalence, severity and clinical outcome of malnutrition in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Malnutrition is well-known to unfavorably influence clinical prognosis in patients (pts) with malignant diseases. However, in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET) prevalence and outcome of malnutrition are unknown although the gastroenteropancreatic system is most frequently involved.
