The Role of Interval CT Scanning in Patients Undergoing Palliative Chemotherapy for Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) Abstract #1372

Introduction: In NET, radiological response to chemotherapy is often delayed and the importance of interval-imaging during treatment has not been determined.
Aim(s): To asses whether interval-imaging alters clinical management.
Materials and methods: We performed a retrospective review of NET patients treated with chemotherapy between 2008-2011. Relevant data was extracted from the medical and radiological records.

#845 Ki-67 Index as a Biomarker of Response to Cytotoxic Chemotherapy
Introduction: Chemotherapy (CT) is widely used for neuroendocrine tumors (NET) but there are no validated biomarkers to predict response. The Ki-67 proliferation index has been proposed as a means of selecting patients for CT but robust data are lacking.

#1504 Design of a Phase 3, International, Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo (PBO) Controlled Study Assessing Efficacy and Safety of Lanreotide Autogel/Depot (LAN) 120 mg in Patients with Well-Differentiated, Advanced Typical and Atypical Lung NETs
Introduction: The international phase 3 CLARINET study showed that treatment with the somatostatin analog (SSA) lanreotide was associated with significantly prolonged PFS vs PBO in GEP-NETs, leading to a new indication approved in more than 35 countries. Like GEP-NETs, lung NETs express somatostatin receptors.

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

#1790 Lanreotide Autogel/Depot (LAN) in Lung Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs): The Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo (PBO)-Controlled, International Phase 3 SPINET Study
Introduction: Treatment options for advanced lung NETs are limited. The phase 3 CLARINET study demonstrated antitumour efficacy of somatostatin analogue (SSA) LAN 120mg vs PBO for metastatic gastroenteropancreatic grade 1/2 (Ki-67<10%) NETs, but prospective data on SSAs in advanced lung NETs are lacking.
