Streptozotocin/5-Fluorouracil (STZ/5FU) Chemotherapy in G1-G2 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (pNETs): Single Institution Experience Abstract #1023

Introduction: STZ is the only FDA-approved antiblastic drug for well-/moderately-differentiated NETs. To date, no clear therapeutic sequence is defined for medical treatment of advanced pNETs.
Aim(s): To evaluate STZ/5FU chemotherapy regimen in selected pNETs.
Materials and methods: Progressive and advanced G1-G2 pNETs patients were considered elegible for treatment. STZ/5FU schedule was: 500 mg/m2 for both drugs day 1-5 every six weeks. Four to six cycles were planned. The patients were considered evaluable for response once undergoing a minimum of two cycles. Response to treatment was evaluated every two cycles, according to RECIST v1.1 criteria. Toxicity was evaluated according to CTC v4.0.

Introduction: PanNETs have a broad spectrum of aggressiveness. Somatostatin-receptor based functional imaging, [68Ga]DOTATOC-PET/CT (GP), is recommended in the diagnostic workup of PanNETs; preliminary evidences show that [18F]FDG-PET/CT (FP) can provide prognostic information.

Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic endocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) are a frequent manifestation of MEN1. They represent an important prognostic factor in these patients. There is still a debate on their management, mainly on surgical strategy, due to their multicentricity and high recurrence rate.
