Temozolomide in Metastatic Bronchial Carcinoids Abstract #173

Introduction: Metastatic bronchial carcinoids are rare neoplasms, where efforts of medical treatment thus far have been disappointing. Temozolomide has, however, shown some activity in a small prior study.
Aim(s): To perform a retrospective analysis of patients with metastatic bronchial carcinoids treated with temozolomide as monotherapy at a referral center.
Materials and methods: The medical records of all patients with metastatic bronchial carcinoid treated with temozolomide as monotherapy at our center between 2004 and 2010 (n=34; 10 typical, 14 atypical, 10 unclassified) were reviewed. Temozolomide was given at 150-200 mg/sq.m days 1-5 in a cycle of 28 d. Review of CT scans by RECIST 1.1. was possible in 23 patients.

#111 Atypical lung carcinoid tumor metastatic to endocrine glands and bone marrow
Introduction: Bronchopulmonary neuroendocrine tumors (BP-NETs) comprise 20% of all lung cancers. Typical low grade carcinoid tumors (TC) represent the majority of BP-carcinoids. Intermediate grade atypical carcinoid tumors (AC) are less often encountered but more aggressive. Although metastatic dissemination to mediastinal lymph nodes, liver, skeleton and central nervous system (CNS) is common, involvement of the endocrine glands has rarely been reported.

#139 Association of carcinoid with noncarcinoid neoplasms
Introduction: Carcinoid tumors have a complex disease spectrum. Most have a benign clinical course, but some are aggressive, with invasive growth, metastasis and short survival. In carcinoid tumors, more than 20% are associated with noncarcinoid neoplasms. When the second tumor is a more malignant lesion, the prognosis usually is correlated more closely with the noncarcinoid malignant neoplasm.
