  • [Title] Long-term survival of patients with carcinoid tumor and liver metastases.
  • PURPOSE: To determine long-term survival and long-term stable disease in patients with atypical carcinoid tumor with liver metastases.
  • METHODS: From 1993 till 2008, the records of 56 patients with atypical carcinoid were reviewed.
  • Nine of them who had liver metastases were analysed.
  • All patients had carcinoid tumors confirmed histologically.
  • Treatment, including chemotherapy and somatostatin, was given as palliative therapy of short duration.
  • The remaining 6 patients are alive after 36, 40, 108, 120, 156 and 156 months, practically without treatment and experiencing a high quality of life.
  • CONCLUSION: Six of 9 (66.66%) patients are alive having received almost no treatment for many years.

  • [Title] High-resolution analysis of genetic alterations in small bowel carcinoid tumors reveals areas of recurrent amplification and loss.
  • Carcinoid tumors of the small intestine are characterized by an indolent clinical course, secretion of neuropeptides, and resistance to standard cytotoxic chemotherapy.
  • To evaluate the molecular events underlying carcinoid tumorigenesis, we used high-resolution arrays of single nucleotide polymorphisms to study chromosomal gains and losses in 24 primary and metastatic small bowel carcinoid tumors derived from 18 patients.
  • The amplitude of observed gains was modest in comparison to those reported in some other tumor types.
  • This detailed study of an uncommon neoplasm provides a basis to investigate putative oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in intestinal carcinoid tumors.

  • [Title] Surgical management of bronchopulmonary typical carcinoid tumors: an institutional experience.
  • Bronchopulmonary typical carcinoid tumors are well known as low-grade malignant tumors with fairly benign behaviors; however, distant metastasis after complete resection and multiple carcinoid tumors in the resected lungs have been sporadically reported.
  • For better understanding of bronchopulmonary typical carcinoid tumors, we reviewed our institutional experience.
  • Eight patients with bronchopulmonary typical carcinoid tumors underwent complete pulmonary resection.
  • In one patient who received a lobectomy for a peripheral nodule, multiple carcinoid tumors were found in the resected specimen.
  • No patients received any adjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy after pulmonary resection.
  • In one patient, tumors recurred at the bronchial stump and in the liver approximately five years after complete pulmonary resection.
  • Despite a small number of cases, our study supported the idea that bronchopulmonary typical carcinoid tumors might require major surgical procedures and that complete pulmonary resection of typical carcinoid tumors could expect long-term survival.

  • [Title] Role of liver transplantation in the management of metastatic neuroendocrine tumors.
  • INTRODUCTION: In the majority of patients transplanted for unresectable liver metastases, long-term results are disappointing because of early tumor recurrence.
  • Due to its biologically less aggressive nature, neuroendocrine metastases (NM) may represent a good indication for liver transplantation (LT).
  • The management of primary tumors was sequential in three patients with the tumor being resected before LT (one Whipple procedure and two left pancreatectomies).
  • All patients were treated with chemotherapy.
  • RESULTS: Two patients developed recurrent disease succumbing at 15 months (nonfunctioning NE pancreatic head tumor) and 17 months (carcinoid of the pancreatic tail) post-LT.

  • [Title] The role of radiofrequency ablation in multiple liver metastases to debulk the tumor: a pilot study before alternative therapies.
  • INTRODUCTION: In this study, our aim was to proceed with the first study of our patients by evaluating different metastatic tumor to the liver to check whether, after debulking the tumor with radiofrequency ablation (RFA), the chemotherapy, could increase the survival in these patients as a pilot study before applying alternative therapies in the future.
  • The tumors considered were carcinoid (3), gastrinoma (3), a new endocrine of unknown origin (2), colorectal (2), and breast (1).
  • All other patients are still alive, although 2 experienced hepatic recurrences.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The 11 patients in this series showed that RFA combined with chemotherapy is a viable therapeutic choice for patients with cancer that has metastasized to the liver.
  • New therapies are still needed.

  • [Title] Long-term survival after radiofrequency ablation of complex unresectable liver tumors.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between November 1, 1997, and January 31, 2005, we performed 219 RFA procedures to ablate 521 hepatic tumors in 181 patients.
  • The most common tumors included colorectal cancer (40.9%), hepatocellular carcinoma (14.9%), carcinoid tumor (13.8%), melanoma (9.4%), and breast cancer (5.0%).
  • The average number of RFA-treated lesions per procedure was 2.38 lesions; the mean lesion size was 3.56 cm (lesion size range, 0.8-9.0 cm).
  • At a mean follow-up of 33.2 months (follow-up range, 12-91 months), overall survival was 48.3 months for carcinoid tumors, 25.2 months for hepatocellular carcinoma, 18.5 months for melanoma, 29.7 months for colorectal cancer, and 30.1 months for breast cancer.
  • Seventy-eight patients (43%) developed recurrences.
  • CONCLUSION: A significant number of patients whose hepatic malignancies are unresectable or refractory to chemotherapy may be considered for RFA as part of a multimodality therapeutic regimen.

  • Significant progress is being made in the prevention of hepatitis B-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) but hepatitis C-related HCC is increasing in the West and therapeutic advances in established disease have been modest.
  • Although ablative therapies, including surgical resection, seem effective in patients with small tumours these only represent a minority of patients.
  • Systemic chemotherapy is of unproven benefit and is now largely confined to clinical trials.
  • In contrast, there has been a steady improvement in the outlook of patients with established metastatic liver cancer when the primary site is colorectal.
  • Somatostatin analogues have had a dramatic impact on the symptomatic control of neuroendocrine tumours, metastatic to the liver that result in the carcinoid syndrome.

  • [Title] Hepatic metastases from an unknown primary neoplasm (UPN): survival, prognostic indicators and value of extensive investigations.
  • AIM: The objectives of this study were to identify prognostic features for patients with hepatic metastases and unknown primary neoplasms (UPN), determine the common primary tumours, assess the value of diagnostic tests in finding these tumours, and evaluate the impact of therapy and knowledge of the primary tumour on patient survival.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty-eight patients with UPN and liver biopsy proven hepatic metastases over a 10-year period were reviewed (M:F, 58:30; age range 27-91 years, median 64.5 years).
  • Histopathology, diagnostic investigations and success at identifying the primary neoplasm were recorded.
  • In addition, in 70 patients with adenocarcinoma histology (M:F, 48:22; age range 27-91 years, median 65 years), treatment and survival data from the date of biopsy were recorded.
  • RESULTS: The histological spectrum included adenocarcinoma in 70, neuroendocrine in four, squamous cell carcinoma in four, small cell carcinoma in four, carcinoid in two, hepatoma in one and three others.
  • Extensive investigation identified a primary neoplasm in 16/88 patients (18%) including colorectal in six, gastric in two, lung in four, oesophageal in two, prostate in one and carcinoid in one.
  • Sixteen of 62 patients received active treatment with either surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy or a combination protocol.
  • Patients <65 years were more likely to receive active treatment than those >65 years (P=0.006).
  • Age with a hazard ratio (HR) of 1.01 (P=0.178), active treatment (HR=0.65;P=0.194), knowledge of the primary neoplasm (HR=0.60;P=0.213) and male gender (HR=0.88;P=0.642) had no significant effect on survival.
  • CONCLUSION: Although hepatic metastases are associated with poor prognosis, it is essential that a liver biopsy be performed to obtain a histological diagnosis.
  • Extensive investigation is not warranted in patients with adenocarcinoma liver metastases.

  • Functional tumors show early, because the neoplasm release the hormone produced when they are still small.
  • The localization and the evaluation of the extensive of these tumors has come fundamentally important both in correct presurgical detection and also in the diagnosis of metastases which excluded surgery.
  • Also, as the survival of 20% of the patients with metastases is only five years, the use of non-invasive imaging techniques is very important for the evaluation of results of the various therapies (chemotherapy, interferon, somatostatin).
  • Where SRS is negative and surgery is possible, Spiral CT or better still MRI is the best tool to check the results of chemotherapy in patients with hepatic metastases (already detected by SRS), because it is easier to compare the changes in size and morphology of metastases.

  • [Title] Intra-arterial hepatic chemoembolization in liver metastases from neuroendocrine tumors: a phase II study.
  • Neuroendocrine tumors, particularly those of gastrointestinal tract origin, have a predisposition for metastasizing to the liver, causing parenchymal substitution and paraneoplastic syndrome.
  • Lipiodol embolization combined with anticancer drugs is a recent tool in regional therapy.
  • It has been proven that chemoembolization reduces tumor bulk and hormone levels, and that it palliates the symptoms of many patients with liver-dominant neuroendocrine metastases.
  • Beginning in December 1988, ten patients with unresectable and chemotherapy-refractory liver metastatic neuroendocrine tumors were treated with chemoembolization based on a mixture of lipiodol, mitomycin, cisplatin, epirubicin, followed by gelfoam powder and contrast media.
  • One patient had liver abscess and persistent fever for 2 weeks.
  • They showed more than a 75% decrease in urinary secretion after treatment.
  • In a patient with transplanted liver we noticed a partial response lasting 7 months.
  • We conclude that chemoembolization will improve the clinical condition of a significant percentage of patients with liver metastases, that future therapy of carcinoid tumors will be based on specific tumor biology and that treatment will be customized for each individual patient combining the use of cytoreductive procedures including radiofrequency ablation, laser treatment and chemoembolization.

  • [Transliterated title] Stratégie de traitement des tumeurs neuro-endocrines.
  • Therapeutic strategy of neuroendocrine tumours is complex, due to their heterogeneity and to the fact that although generally slow growing, a significant proportion demonstrates aggressive tumour growth.
  • Symptomatic carcinoid syndrome and various pancreatic endocrine tumours with symptomatic syndromes are well controlled with somatostatin analogues.
  • Surgery remains the mainstay of treatment if the tumour can be resected.
  • Metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour are treated when resection is not feasible with combination chemotherapy using adriamycin and streptozotocin, which remains a standard of care.
  • In well differentiated tumour of the gut or the lung there is no clear standard of chemotherapy and treatment vary according to the tumour course.
  • In indolent cases, somatostatin analogues are the best treatment, in case of aggressive tumours chemoembolisation should be preferred when the disease is located or predominant in the liver.
  • Poorly differentiated tumours are treated by combination chemotherapy with etoposide and cisplatin, and surgery has no indication.
  • Gastrinoma and other pancreatic tumours arising in the context of multiple endocrine neoplasia type I disease need a specific therapeutic strategy.

  • [Title] A clinical overview of carcinoid tumors: perspectives for improvement in treatment using peptide analogs (review).
  • Carcinoid tumors were first described more than a century ago, but the treatment of patients with advanced disease remains a challenge to physicians.
  • The etiology of carcinoid tumors, the biologic determinants of the growth of these malignancies, as well as the high frequency of multiple carcinoid and/or non-carcinoid tumors in patients with this disease also remain to be elucidated.
  • A 5-decade analysis of 13,715 carcinoid tumors in the USA showed that distant metastases were demonstrated at the time of diagnosis in 12.9% of patients with this neoplasia.
  • The prognosis of patients with early stage disease is good and surgical resection is the standard form of treatment.
  • However, patients with metastatic dissemination have poor outcomes since chemotherapy is generally ineffective.
  • Surgical resection of isolated hepatic metastases, surgical hepatic artery ligation or embolization produce responses in selected patients.
  • Radiation therapy may ease the pain of bone metastases.
  • The administration of long acting analogs of somatostatin can control the symptoms of diarrhea and flushing in patients with the malignant carcinoid syndrome.
  • However, a complete regression of metastatic carcinoid tumors following the administration of somatostatin analog octreotide has been reported so far in only 3 cases.
  • Other modalities of treatment, including liver transplantation and the administration of radiolabeled somatostatin analogs have likewise been applied in patients with advanced disease.
  • It is expected that advances in proteomics research will contribute to our understanding of the mechanisms of diseases and aid in designing new drugs.

  • We describe two cases of atypical carcinoid of the thymus.
  • Computed tomography scans of the chest in both cases revealed a large mass in the anterior mediastinum.
  • Multiple metastases to bone and liver were also noted in the former case.
  • Combination chemotherapy consisting of carboplatin and etoposide was performed as initial chemotherapy in the former case and as adjuvant therapy in the latter.
  • It is important to differentiate atypical carcinoid from other thymic tumors, since such tumors including thymoma have a much better prognosis than does atypical carcinoid.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The ability of carcinoid tumors to cause clinical symptoms by secretion of hormones or biogenic amines is best recognised in the form of the carcinoid syndrome.
  • A small percentage of NETs are associated with co-existing synchronous non-carcinoid neoplasm.
  • The therapeutic options which are reviewed, including the use of somatostatin analogues, the role of surgery, the use of chemotherapy, biotherapy using interferon, peptide receptor targeted therapy.
  • In addition, the challenging interventional management of liver metastases is discussed, including the role of hepatic-artery embolization, radiofrequency ablation and the place of orthotoptic liver transplantation in selected patients.
  • Authors have focused on the newest therapeutic modalities, e.g., radionuclide peptide receptor targeted therapy with Yttrium-90 and Lutetium-177, the newest somatostatin analogues such as pasireotide and angiogenic inhibitors.
  • In conclusion, with the increasing number of investigative procedures and therapeutic options available to diagnose and treat carcinoid tumors, it is vital to have a multidisciplinary approach.
  • Furthermore, additional scientific research and controlled clinical trials are needed to determine the efficacy of the many treatment options, which for these rare tumors can only be achieved by collaboration.

  • [Title] [Relationship of biological behavior and the prognosis in gastric carcinoid].
  • OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship of biologic behavior and prognosis in patients with gastric carcinoid.
  • METHODS: A total of 26 gastric carcinoid patients proven by pathology from Jan.
  • Tumor size, invasion depth, regional lymph node metastasis, liver metastasis, adjuvant chemotherapy and 5-year survival were analyzed retrospectively.
  • A univariate analysis of survival rate with respect to gastric wall infiltration, regional lymph node metastasis, liver metastasis, and adjuvant chemotherapy were accomplished by Kaplan-Meier estimation method.
  • During the follow-up period, liver metastases occurred in 14 patients (53.8%).
  • Tumor size was not associated with gastric serosa invasion, regional lymph node metastasis, liver metastasis and 5-year survival (P>0.05).
  • Analysis of cumulative survival showed different survival time depending on gastric serosa invasion, regional lymph node metastasis and liver metastasis.
  • In patients with gastric serosa invasion, regional lymph node metastasis and liver metastasis, estimated 5-year cumulative survivals were 16.7%, 16.7% and 0 respectively.
  • Adjuvant chemotherapy was administrated in 10 patients (38.5%) and was not beneficial to prolong the survival time and increase the 5-year survival rate.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Surgical resection is the major strategy for the treatment of gastric carcinoid, and adjuvant chemotherapy is not proved to produce obvious effects.
  • The prognosis of gastric carcinoid depends on the tumor infiltration of gastric wall, regional metastasis and liver metastasis.

  • [Title] The aromatic-L-amino acid decarboxylase inhibitor carbidopa is selectively cytotoxic to human pulmonary carcinoid and small cell lung carcinoma cells.
  • The carcinoid tumor is an uncommon neuroendocrine neoplasm the hallmark of which is excessive serotonin production.
  • In studying kinetics of tryptophan hydroxylase and aromatic-L-amino acid decarboxylase (AAAD) in human carcinoid hepatic metastases and adjacent normal liver (J. A.
  • Pharmacol., 50: 845-850, 1995), we identified one significant difference: the Vmax of carcinoid AAAD was 50-fold higher than that in normal liver.
  • Here, we report Western and Northern analyses detecting large quantities of AAAD polypeptide and mRNA in human carcinoid primary as well as metastatic tumors compared with normal surrounding tissues.
  • To assess the feasibility of targeting these high AAAD levels for chemotherapy, AAAD inhibitors carbidopa (alpha-methyl-dopahydrazine), alpha-monofluoromethyldopa (MFMD), and 3-hydroxybenzylhydrazine (NSD-1015) were incubated (72 h) with NCI-H727 human lung carcinoid cells.
  • For lung tumor lines (carcinoid, two SCLC, and one large cell lung carcinoma), AAAD activity was correlated with the potency of carbidopa-induced cytotoxicity.
  • However, carcinoid cell death was not solely attributable to complete inhibition of either AAAD activity or the serotonin synthetic pathway.
  • In further evaluating potential applications of these findings with carbidopa, we determined that sublethal doses of carbidopa produced additive cytotoxic effects in carcinoid cells in combination with etoposide and cytotoxic synergy in SCLC cells when coincubated with topotecan.

  • [Title] Prediction of clinical outcome in treated neuroendocrine tumours of carcinoid type using functional volumes on 111In-pentetreotide SPECT imaging.
  • The quantification of the tumour volume is essential for the assessment of therapy-induced changes.
  • Traditional methods of assessing the response of neuroendocrine tumours using radiological methods yield poor results, particularly within the liver.
  • The aim of this study was to establish whether it would be possible to identify a method using functional volumes to predict the response of tumours to various therapies.
  • Twenty-two patients with neuroendocrine tumours of carcinoid type in the liver were treated with chemotherapy, chemo-embolization or 90Y-radiolabelled somatostatin analogues.
  • All patients underwent 111In-pentetreotide single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and computed tomography (CT) scan pre- and post-treatment.
  • The tumour functional volume, a measure of metabolically active tumour tissue, was calculated from the SPECT images using a 10-point display; regions of interest were drawn around 50% of the maximum tumour activity, slice by slice, and then multiplied by the slice thickness (9.3 mm).
  • At 6 months after treatment, 14 patients showed a good clinical response, as measured by a reduction in pain, flushing or abdominal symptoms; the functional volume of the tumours in these patients decreased by a mean of 25% (range, 1-52%).
  • The assessment of the total functional volume by SPECT quantification is more useful than CT in monitoring tumour response after treatment, and the changes in functional volumes after therapy correlate well with the clinical response.
