Three cases of metastatic spinal cord compression secondary to malignant pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma

Khan Amber , Kapoor Ashutosh , Manoharan Prakash , Chander Amarjot , Westwood Thomas , Woolf David , Hoong Ho Jan , Adam Safwaan

Approximately 15-20% of phaeochromocytomas and paragangliomas (PPGL) are metastatic. Metastatic spinal cord compression (MSCC) has been reported infrequently. We present three cases of MSCC secondary to metastatic PPGLs. MSCC can occur in patients with PPGLs and should be considered in patients with either spinal symptoms or spinal metastases on imaging. Our series has shown radiotherapy followed by therapeutic MIBG to be effective in treating spinal metastases. Each case shou...

Outcomes in patients with advanced well-differentiated gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours receiving PRRT early versus later

Robinson Matthew D , Chander Amarjot , Westwood Tom , Manoharan Prakash , Mansoor Was , Lamarca Angela , A Hubner Richard , W Valle Juan , G McNamara Mairead

Background: Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are rare malignancies; over 60% of primary lesions arise in the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas. Despite several practice-changing clinical trials, uncertainty persists around the most efficacious treatment sequence in patients with advanced well-differentiated gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) NETs, particularly in relation to peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT). This study aimed to investigate the progression-free survival (P...

68Gallium-DOTANOC (68Ga-DOTANOC) positron emission tomography (PET) imaging in Bronchial Carcinoids (BC): multicentre evaluation of its role in clinical practice

Lamarca Angela , Pritchard D. Mark , Westwood Thomas , Papaxoinis George , Vinjamuri Sobhan , Valle Juan W , Manoharan Prakash , Mansoor Wasat

Background: New nuclear medicine imaging techniques have improved diagnosis, staging and treatment planning for BC. 68Ga-DOTA PET is preferable to standard somatostatin receptor scintigraphy where available (ENETS guidelines); however, its role in the management of BC remains unclear.Methods: All consecutive patients diagnosed with BC from two ENETS Centres of Excellence were identified retrospectively; patients with high grade tumours or lack...

Whole-exome sequencing (WES) of samples from patients with advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (pNETs) with exceptional responses vs. poor responders to targeted therapies; a TransNET study

Barriuso Jorge , Lamarca Angela , McNamara Mairead , Burgis Timothy , Manoharan Prakash , Hayes Andrew , Mansoor Wasat , Hubner Richard , Valle Juan

Background: Despite encouraging advances in the systemic therapy options for patients with pNETs (sunitinib and everolimus), no predictive biomarkers have been established for these drugs. We aimed to identify distinctive genomic alterations associated with benefit from treatment in patients with pNETs, by comparing exceptional-responders (ER) to poor-responders (PO).Methods: Patients who achieved an objective radiological response (complete or partial) ...

Carboplatin-etoposide chemotherapy for patients with advanced extra-pulmonary (EP) poorly differentiated (PD) neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC); outcomes from a European Neuroendocrine Tumour Society Centre of Excellence

Frizziero Melissa , Lamarca Angela , Kordatou Zoe , Barriuso Jorge , Nuttall Christina , McNamara Mairead G. , Hubner Richard A. , Mansoor Wasat , Manoharan Prakash , Valle Juan W.

Introduction: Platinum-etoposide is considered standard-of-care first-line treatment for patients diagnosed with advanced EP-PD-NECs. The optimal platinum-etoposide schedule remains undefined; carboplatin is often substituted for cisplatin, although quality data is lacking.Methods: Electronic records of patients with advanced EP-PD-NEC treated with carboplatin-etoposide (06/09-02/17) were reviewed retrospectively, with aim to provide real-life efficacy/s...

Are outcomes of patients with advanced well-differentiated GEP-NETs on somatostatin analogues similar, irrespective of tracer uptake on 68gallium DOTA SSTR peptide PET CT scans?

Shah Dinakshi , Loveland Oliver , Chander Amarjot , Westwood Tom , Manoharan Prakash , Mansoor Was , Lamarca Angela , Hubner Richard A , Valle Juan W , McNamara Mairead G

Background: Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are a rare and heterogeneous group of neoplasms that mainly originate from the gastroenteropancreatic tract (GEP-NETs). The vast majority of NETs tend to overexpress somatostatin receptors (SSTRs), which can be targeted by somatostatin analogues (SSAs). 68Gallium DOTA SSTR peptide positron emission tracer computed tomography (68Ga PET-CT) has emerged as superior to other imaging modalities in identifying SSTRs. Th...

The impact of 68Ga-based PET-CT scanning on the management of patients with familial pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (panNETs)

Cuthbertson Daniel , Barriuso Jorge , Pizanias Michail , Jaffa Matthew , Nuttall Christina , Vivian Gillian , Halloran Tom , Westwood Tom , Prachalias Andreas , Lalloo Fiona , Weismann Hulya , Martin Wendy , Vinjamuri Sobhan , Mark Pritchard D. , Fenwick Steve , Ganeh Paula , Raraty Mike , McNamara Mairead , Srirajaskanthan Raj , Ramage John , Manoharan Prakash , Yip Vincent

Background: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (panNETs) may arise as part of an underlying genetic condition such as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN type 1). The value of functional imaging using 68Ga-labelled synthetic octreotide analogues using PET-CT has not been extensively evaluated in patients with MEN1 to determine its value.Methods: We investigated the effect of 68Ga-based PET-CT imaging on patient management in pat...
