The Role of External Beam Radiotherapy in the Management of Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #1135

Introduction: Palliative external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) is routinely used to control symptoms and disease progression in metastatic malignancies, but there is limited data in metastatic neuroendocrine tumours (NET).
Aim(s): Compare symptom-free (SFS) and progression-free survival (PFS) of patients with advanced NET who received EBRT and identify prognostic factors.
Materials and methods: Forty five patients were included and analysed retrospectively. Symptoms were assessed via a score and radiological assessment was based on cross-sectional imaging. Univariate Kaplan-Meir techniques and multivariate regression models were utilized.

Introduction: Conservatively,the incidence of NETs is 7 / 000' p.a, however,the prevalence of patients living with NETs is higher,40/000',making it the 2nd most common GI malignancy after colorectal cancer.Patients are living longer,however,with impaired quality of life.Management of debilitating symptoms such as diarrhoea,fatigue,anxiety,and flushing are complex and heterogenous.
