Prognostic Role of Diabetes Mellitus (DM) and Metformin (MET) Therapy in Patients (pts) with Advanced G1-G2 Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Treated with Everolimus (EVE) Abstract #1153

Introduction: MET has shown antitumorigenic effects on DM cancer pts, which are mediated by decrease of insulin/IGF-1 levels and activation of the AMPK pathway leading to mTOR inactivation.
Aim(s): To assess the potential prognostic impact of MET administered during EVE therapy among DM pts with advanced NETs.
Materials and methods: We retrospectively identified pts with advanced G1-G2 gastroenteropancreatic and lung NETs treated with EVE at 7 Spanish University hospitals. Cox proportional hazard models controlling for primary tumour site, grade and previous therapies were used to compare progression-free survival (PFS) across non-DM pts, DM pts on MET and DM pts on anti-DM agents other than MET.

Introduction: EVE-induced HG can be explained by a decrease in insulin release or increase in peripheral insulin resistance. It has been documented in 12-13% of NET pts included in phase III clinical trials based on investigators reports.
