Real-World Study on Everolimus in Advanced, Progressive Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #937

Introduction: Everolimus (EVE) is a valid therapeutic option for neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). However, data in the “real-world” setting outside regulatory trials are scant.
Aim(s): To determine EVE tolerability and efficacy, in relationship with previous treatments, in a compassionate-use program.
Materials and methods: One-hundred and sixty-nine advanced progressive NETs treated with EVE evaluated: 85 pancreatic (pNETs), and 84 non-pancreatic (non-pNETs). Previous treatments were: somatostatin analogs 92.9%, PRRT 50.3%, chemotherapy 49.7%, PRRT and chemotherapy 22.8%.

#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

#48 Preliminary report of the use of everolimus in a patient with progressive medullary thyroid carcinoma
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) accounts for about 5-10% of all thyroid cancers, and while disease localized to the thyroid can be cured by surgery, there is no effective treatment for disseminated MTC. Constitutive activation of the RET proto-oncogene is implicated in familial and a proportion of sporadic cases, and up-regulates the AKT/PI3-kinase/mTOR signal transduction pathway. Recent studies have shown that the inhibitor of mTOR, everolimus (RAD001, Novartis, Basel), can inhibit the proliferation of the TT cell line and human MTC tumor cells in vitro. Clinically, everolimus has been shown to attenuate the progression of some gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors, but its clinical use in MTC has not yet been evaluated.
