Role of Interval Reduction of Somatostatin Analogs in Patients with Progressive Neuroendocrine Tumors: Our Experience Abstract #2232

Introduction: Interval reduction of somatostatin analogs (SSAs) is a possibly strategy for elderly patients with progressive metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Patients with diagnosis of NET are >75 years old in the 25% of cases. No randomized studies are available to evaluate efficacy of this treatment schedule.
Aim(s): Evaluate interval reduction of SSAs in progressive NETs in the elderly.
Materials and methods: We evaluated 6 patients with progressive NETs receiving Lanreotide ATG 120 mg/21 days.

#130 Lanreotide Autogel for malignant carcinoid syndrome: an 8-year experience
Introduction: Somatostatin analogues provide symptomatic relief in carcinoid syndrome and recently have been shown to inhibit tumor growth in metastatic gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Lanreotide compounds are reported to have similar efficacy to Octreotide compounds. There is limited long-term data available on Lanreoitde Autogel.

#1538 Safety of High Doses Lanreotide Treatment in Patients with Progressive Neuroendocrine Tumors: Results from a Prospective Phase II Trial
Introduction: Dose escalation (or interval reduction) of somatostatin analogs (SSAs) is a rather common strategy for patients (pts) with progressive metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). However, to date, no systematic prospective studies have been carried out to evaluate safety and efficacy of this treatment schedule in NETs.

#1708 STREET - Somatostatin Treatment Experience Trial
Introduction: Somatostatin analogs (SSA) delay progress and decrease symptoms in patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP-NETs). It is not known whether patients’ experiences of injection treatment differ between different SSAs.

#2097 Oral Ondansetron Offers Effective Symptomatic Bridging for Carcinoid Syndrome Refractory to Somatostatin Analogues
Introduction: Somatostatin analogues (SSA) are standard for symptomatic patients with neuroendocrine tumours (NETs). However, most patients experience tachyphylaxis, and limited options exist for this refractory carcinoid syndrome (RCS). Recently, ondansetron has been associated with reduction of bowel movement in a small series.
