Platinum-Based Chemotherapy for the Treatment of High-Grade Gastrointestinal and Unknown Primary Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Abstract #694

Introduction: Poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC sec. WHO 2010) are rare and aggressive neoplasms arising from different districts throughout the body. Platinum and etoposide regimen has been the most widely used first line treatment in this setting.
Aim(s): To evaluate the efficacy and safety of platinum and etoposide regimen in the setting of gastrointestinal and unknown primary (CUP) advanced neuroendocrine carcinomas.
Materials and methods: Patients with histological diagnosis of gastrointestinal or CUP NEC treated with cisplatin/carboplatin plus etoposide regimen from 1999 to 2012 were included in the study.

#974 Topotecan in Pretreated Metastatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma
Introduction: Therapeutic options for metastatic poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) after prior platinum-based chemotherapy are limited. Topotecan is an approved second line chemotherapy for small cell lung cancer (SCLC). NEC is often considered to show a biological behavior similar to SCLC.

#1368 Everolimus in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinomas G3
Introduction: Neuroendocrine Carcinomas (NEC) G3 are heterogeneous diseases with different behaviors, basing on tumor morphology and Ki67 value. Platinum-based chemotherapy is considered the standard treatment in these pts. However, tumors with well-moderately differentiated morphology (NET G3), with Ki67 < 55% may be considered a separate entity in terms of prognosis and therapeutic options
