STZ-Based Chemotherapy is Associated with Durable Response Rate in Pancreatic NET as 1st or 2nd Line Treatment Abstract #1008

Introduction: The role of chemotherapy for pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) is controversially discussed. Objective response rates (RR) with streptozocin (STZ)-based chemotherapy are variable. Novel targeted drugs have recently been approved.
Aim(s): To evaluate the efficacy of STZ+5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) in a large pNET cohort.
Materials and methods: Data from 97 patients (pts) with advanced pNET were analysed retrospectively. Imaging was reviewed (RECIST criteria) by an experienced radiologist.

#3034 Somatostatin Analogs for Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Is There Any Benefit When Ki-67 Is ≥ 10%?
Introduction: The antiproliferative effect of first-line long acting somatostatin analogs (SSA) in advanced gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) was shown in the PROMID and the CLARINET trials. Efficacy data in pancreatic NETs (PanNETs) with Ki-67 ≥ 10% are limited.

#3036 Can Ki-67 with 5.5% Be Better in Predicting Prognosis for Well Differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors?
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare malignancies, Ki-67 is a cell proliferation marker that has been shown to have some utility in predicting prognosis of neuroendocrine tumors. However, the ideal grading method for G1/G2 remains controversial.

#3044 Efficacy of Alkylating Agent Re-challenge after Therapeutic Pause in Metastatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PanNET)
Introduction: Temozolomide (TMZ) and dacarbazine (DTIC) are alkylating agents (ALK) with antitumor efficacy in metastatic PanNET. Rechallenging ALK following prior efficacy is commonly performed but has not been evaluated.
