Therapeutic Strategies in Patients with Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (GEP-NEN): Results from the National Neuroendocrine Cancer Registry of Spain (R-GETNE) Abstract #1526

Introduction: The Spanish National Neuroendocrine Cancer Registry is a hospital-based registry of GEP-NENs launched by GETNE in 2001.
Aim(s): We present therapeutic strategies and patterns of care.
Materials and methods: Data from this national registry that covers 57 academic and community Spanish sites was provided online.

#14 Radioguided surgery in NET: First impression with Ga-68 labeled somatostatin analogues
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) constitute a heterogenous group of neoplasms. The development of Gallium-68-labeled somatostatin analogues, such as DOTA-NOC or DOTA-TOC, PET/CT have dramatically improved the diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors. Surgery remains the treatment of choice for localized disease as well as metastatic disease. The aims of surgery are: improvement of symptoms, reduction of tumor mass / burden and to give better quality of life to patients. Recurrent laparotomies often lead to multiple adhesions and altered anatomy. So it is increasingly difficult for imaging physicians and surgeons to separate non-malignant from malignant tissue.

#55 Metronomic combination therapy including temozolamide, bevacizumab and somatostatin analogue for the treatment of malignant gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Malignant gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEPNETS), mainly carcinoids, are not considered to be particularly chemotherapy-sensitive to conventional chemotherapeutic schemes. Long-standing evidence suggests these tumors to be highly vascularised and responsive to antiangiogenic strategies. Newest reports demonstrate benefit by the use of temozolamide, an oral alkylating agent similar to intravenous dacarbazine. The DNA repair enzyme O6-alkylguanine–DNA alkyltransferase (AGAT) confers cancer cell resistance to O6-alkylating agents such as temozolamide through its ability to remove methyl/alkyl groups from the O6-position of guanine, thus correcting drug-induced DNA damage.

#80 Metastatic growth hormone secreting pituitary carcinoma treated with peptide receptor radionuclide therapy
Introduction: Pituitary carcinoma (PC) is an extremely rare condition defined by the presence of adenohypophyseal neoplastic tissue outside the pituitary. Clinical experience regarding diagnosis, management and prognosis of PC is very limited. Growth hormone (GH) secreting PC is even rarer and represents a particular challenge to clinical practice. Therapeutic modalities utilized to treat PC include surgery, radiation, hormonal therapy, and cytotoxic drugs. Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) is an emerging therapeutic modality that involves the targeted delivery of an ablative dose of radiolabelled somatostatin analog. PRRT has been applied to various neuroendocrine tumors and results in prolonged survival and enhanced quality of life. As yet, this therapy has not been applied to malignant pituitary tumors.

#107 Results of the Gastroenteropancreatic NETs Spanish Registry in the 2001-2010 period
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEPNETs) are infrequent and heterogeneous neoplasms that have conditioned the lack of verified epidemiologic data.

#133 Effectiveness of transarterial embolization of liver neuroendocrine metastases
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) with diffuse liver metastases have a poor prognosis and prove difficult to palliate. Somatostatin analogues and chemotherapy have been used but often are poorly tolerated and may not provide symptom relief. Transarterial Embolization (TAE) is being increasingly used to improve symptom control and reduce tumor size. We looked at the last 5-year experience of TAE in patients with hepatic metastases from neuroendocrine tumors.
