Streptozotocin Based Chemotherapy in Advanced G2 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PNET): Efficacy According to KI67 Index Abstract #1116

Introduction: Streptozotocin (STZ) with fluorouracil (FU) or doxorubicin (DOX) is approved in well differentiated advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET).
Aim(s): To evaluate the efficacy of STZ-FU and STZ-DOX in patients with grade 2 stage IV PNET according to Ki-67.
Materials and methods: We present a subset analysis from the RGETNE (registry of Spanish NET Group (GETNE)). Forty-five patients were recruited at a single Spanish centre from 2004-2012. Patients with Ki67 3-10% received STZ-FU while those with Ki-67 11-19% received STZ-DOX until progression. Response was evaluated according to RECIST v1.1 criteria every 3 months.

#1546 O6-Methylguanine DNA Methyltransferase (MGMT) Expression by Immunochemistry May Help Predict Response to Streptozotocin-based Chemotherapy in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Streptozotocin (STZ) is an alkylating agent inducing DNA damage mainly repaired by MGMT. STZ-based chemotherapy is the first line treatment of non-resectable well-differentiated PNET. As for temozolomide, tumour MGMT deficiency may predict the efficacy of STZ in PNET.
