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.

#1666 Prognosis and Incidence in Pancreatic and Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms with Emphasis on “NET G3”: An Analysis of 198 Cases from Japan
Introduction: Prognostic impact of well differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PanNENs) with a Ki67 >20%, provisionally called NET G3, needs to be validated and compared to poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). Moreover, the frequency of NET G3 among gastrointestinal NENs (GI-NENs) has so far not been studied.
