Risk of Cancer-Specific Death for Patients Diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Population-Based Analysis

NANETS members Julie Hallet, MD, MSC, FRCSC and Simron Singh, MD, MPH, FRCPC recently conducted a population-based study of patients with NETs to examine cancer and noncancer deaths after diagnosis.  

This study was published June 4 in the Official Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. Read the full analysis here.

In this study, Dr. Hallet et al used linked administrative health databases to describe the causes of death for 8607 patients with neuroendocrine neoplasms. They found that, generally, cancer-specific deaths were higher in NET patients, but some subgroups (e.g. those with nonmetastatic gastric, small intestine, colonic, and rectal NETs) were more likely to die of other causes than their NET.
