Resection of the Primary Tumor Prior to Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy Improves Treatment Response and Progression-free Survival in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors with Unresectable Liver Metastases Abstract #1336

Introduction: A low burden of disease represents an independent favorable prognostic factor of response to peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) in patients affected by gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. However it is not clear whether this is due to a lower diffusion of the disease or thanks to debulking surgery
Aim(s): To ascertain whether resection of the primary tumor prior to PRRT could have an impact on response to PRRT and on progression-free survival in patients with G1-G2 metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs)
Materials and methods: From 1996 to 2013 those patients diagnosed with G1-G2 pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PNET), and synchronous unresectable liver metastases who were eligible to receive upfront PRRT were included in the study. Two groups of comparison were identified: those submitted for primary tumor resection before PRRT and those who were not

#1879 A Hybrid Clinical Molecular Nomogram Accurately Predicts Survival in PRRT Treated GEP-NETs
Introduction: Clinical assessment has limited prognostic ability. Mathematical tools –nomograms- that incorporate multiple parameters are more effective. Novel transcriptomic data has added value in defining NET biology in tissue and blood. A blood multigene expression analysis test is effective as a molecular prognostic marker for PFS.
