Temozolomide as 2.-3. line Treatment of Patients with Poorly Differentiated Neuroendocrine Carcinomas Abstract #268

Introduction: Knowledge of the clinical efficacy of treatment beyond first line of poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (PDEC) is sparse. Temozolomide (TMZ) has shown effect in well-differentiated NET.
Aim(s): Evaluation of the efficacy and tolerability of monotherapy TMZ as 2nd and 3rd line treatment after platin-based chemotherapy in patients with PDEC.
Materials and methods: Patients with PDEC (small cell lung carcinomas excluded). WHO performance status 0-2. Adequate organ function tests. At least one previous platin-containing chemotherapy regimen. Informed consent. TMZ schedule: 200 mg/sqm orally days 1-5 every 28 days. Response evaluation at least every three courses.

#2121 Phase II Study of Temozolomide Monotherapy in Patients of Neuroendocrine Carcinoma with Resistant to Platinum-Based Chemotherapy
Introduction: Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) (high grade Ki67 > 20%) were poor prognostic and lethal disease. Platinum-based chemotherapy is usually chosen as a first line treatment for advanced NEC, however, this efficacy is temporary and there is no standard second-line treatment yet. Temozolomide is a good candidate, however it was not approved for NEC by Japanese authorities.

#2864 Irinotecan-Based Regimens for the Second-Line Treatment of Extrapulmonary Poorly Differentiated Neuroendocrine Carcinomas: A Monocentric Experience
Introduction: Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) are a rare subgroup of neuroendocrine neoplasms that occasionally originate from gastro-entero-pancreatic (GEP) tract. Owing to their low incidence, evidences of the effectiveness of chemotherapy are scarce. Analogously to small cell lung cancer, platinum plus etoposide (Vp16) regimens are currently the standard treatment in first-line, while little data are available on the role of second-line treatment.
