Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy in Patients with Metastatic Neuroendocrine Carcinomas: Case Series Abstract #2163

Introduction: High-grade neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) possess inevitable tendencies to metastasise and hold poor prospects of survival. Patients with neuroendocrine tumours who progress after medical management can be treated with peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT), on the proviso that there is positive uptake on 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT imaging. Despite this, a proportion of patients who exhibit positive imaging respond poorly to therapy. Management of NECs is currently limited; evidence for treating NECs with PRRT is scarce.
Aim(s): We describe clinical efficacy and safety outcomes in a case series of 5 patients with advanced metastatic NEC treated with 177Lu-DOTATATE PRRT.
Materials and methods: A retrospective, single-centre analysis was conducted, whereby records of patients with NECs who received PRRT were reviewed. Complete biochemical parameters and disease features were captured and treatment outcomes were assessed.

#1394 The Difficulties of Response Assessment After Peptide Receptor Radionucleotide Therapy (PRRT): An Unusual Case of Symptomatic Pseudoprogression
Introduction: In previous studies patient symptoms, biochemistry (including chromogranin A) and imaging using RECIST criteria have been used to assess tumour response to PRRT.

#2823 Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy in Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) arising from the rectum are more common in the Asian population. Current treatment options include somatostatin analogues, chemotherapy, and more recently, peptide-receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT). Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) has been shown to be effective in the treatment of advanced gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) tumours with minimal adverse effects. Studies have also suggested that rectal NETs show good response to PRRT, better than GEP NETs.

#2727 Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours versus Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma: Presentation in Tunisian Patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are divided into two groups on the basis of clinical behaviour, histology, and proliferation rate: well differentiated (low grade to intermediate grade) neuroendocrine tumors and poorly differentiated (high grade) neuroendocrine carcinoma.

#867 Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinoma (MANECs): A Rare and Challenging Subgroup of Neuroendocrine Neoplasia
Introduction: Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinomas (MANECs) are rare entities in which at least 30% of neoplastic cells are neuroendocrine in nature (WHO 2010 classification). They result either from two independent lesions that merge together or are unique lesions with different cell populations intermingled.
