STREET - Somatostatin Treatment Experience Trial Abstract #1708

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.
Aim(s): To investigate quality of life and treatment experience with SSA in patients with GEP-NETs.
Materials and methods: A cross-sectional study was performed in two Swedish NET centres. Patients with GEP-NET, older than 18 years, with SSA-treatment for less than 3 years and with Ki67<10% were eligible and identified from hospital databases. Patients were sent a questionnaire addressing practical aspects of, and patient anxiety during the most recent SSA injection.

#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.

#354 Risk Stratification Using Octreotide Test For Patients With Gastro-Entero-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Results Of Prospective Validation Of The Test
Introduction: Criteria for treatment with somatostatin analogs (SSAs) of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) are presence of somatostatin receptors, a positive Octreoscan® or hormonal decrement >50% after octreotide s.c. injection (octreotide test, OT). We demonstrated that a plasma CgA decrement >/=30% after OT is a selection criterion able to predict the clinical response to SSAs.
