Skeletal-Related Events (SREs) and Use of Antiresorptive Therapy (ART) in Patients with Bone Metastases of Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Abstract #1912

Introduction: Antiresorptive therapy (ART) with bisphosphonates or denosumab is effective in preventing skeletal-related events (SREs) in patients with bone metastases (BM). In neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN), BM are a negative prognostic factor, however tend to be asymptomatic and SREs are considered rare. The role of ART in preventing SREs in NEN has not been investigated so far.
Aim(s): To analyze the impact of ART on development of SREs in NEN patients.
Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of our NEN database for all patients with BM who presented at our center between 08/2013 and 07/2015. Overall survival (OS) from diagnosis of BM as well as time to SRE (TTSRE) were calculated. In patients experiencing an SRE within 1 month after diagnosis (i.e. before efficacy of ART could be assessed), TTSRE was defined as the time to a subsequent SRE

Introduction: The incidence of bone metastases (BM) in patients with NENs is 12-25%, and skeletal related events (SREs) occur in up to 21% of affected cases. Data about the efficacy of bisphosphonates in NEN patients (pts) with BM are limited.

#3080 Impact of Multimodal Perioperative Treatment in Patients with Resected Non-Metastatic Grade 3 Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NEN G3)
Introduction: Patients with grade 3 neuroendocrine neoplasm (NEN G3) have a limited prognosis. Even in a non-metastatic stage, the risk of recurrence after surgery is high. Multimodal perioperative treatment, including chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy in an adjuvant or neoadjuvant setting, has improved the prognosis in numerous tumor entities; however, it has not been systematically evaluated in NEN G3 so far. Nevertheless, perioperative chemotherapy is generally recommended in most current treatment guidelines for NEN G3.

#1271 Bone Metastases in NEN Patients - Frequency, Clinical, Therapeutic and Prognostic Relevance
Introduction: Up to 73% of patients with neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) present with distant metastases at diagnosis. Advanced stage negatively correlates with prognosis. Bone metastases (BM) are usually reported in less than 10% of patients. Improved imaging results in more frequent detection but information in general is very limited.
