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.

#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.
