Prospective Observational Study 1 on the Prognosis of Patients with Unresectable Advanced Gastrointestinal and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PROP-UP 1 Study) in Japan Abstract #1788

Introduction: No previous observational studies on the prognosis of advanced gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (GEP-NENs) [pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PNENs) and gastrointestinal neuroendocrine neoplasms (GI-NENs)] exist in Japan.
Aim(s): We planned a retrospective and prospective observational study on the prognosis of patients with unresectable advanced GEP-NENs (PROP-UP 1 and 2). PROP-UP 1 is a retrospective multicenter study to estimate a cut-off value of Ki-67 index between G1 and G2. PROP-UP 2 is a prospective study to verify the results of PROP-UP 1. In this paper we analyzed the characteristics of patients registered to PROP-Up 1.
Materials and methods: PROP-UP 1 included individuals diagnosed with advanced (unresectable or recurrent after curative resection) GEP-NENs from January 2012 up to IRB approval. The primary endpoint is overall survival from diagnosis to last follow-up or death. The main secondary endpoint is to assess a cut-off value of Ki-67 index between G1 and G2.

#2167 Evaluation of Streptozocin-Based Chemotherapeutic Regimens for Advanced Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Multi-Center Clinical Study in Japan
Introduction: Streptozocin (STZ) has been used as a key drug against advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs). The standard in many countries is a daily STZ regimen combined with 5-fluorouracil administered once daily for 5 days every 6 weeks. However, in Japan, STZ was only covered by insurance beginning in 2015, and STZ is often used as monotherapy, as either a daily or a weekly regimen. There are few reports on STZ monotherapy for pNETs.

#814 Chromogranin A is a Useful Marker in Japanese Patients with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Although Chromogranin A (CgA) is known as a useful marker for pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET) in the West, the usefulness of CgA in Japanese patients with pNETs is unclear.

#1666 Prognosis and Incidence in Pancreatic and Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms with Emphasis on “NET G3”: An Analysis of 198 Cases from Japan
Introduction: Prognostic impact of well differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PanNENs) with a Ki67 >20%, provisionally called NET G3, needs to be validated and compared to poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). Moreover, the frequency of NET G3 among gastrointestinal NENs (GI-NENs) has so far not been studied.
