Large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNC) is a rare tumour characterized by aggressive biological behaviour and poor prognosis. Due to its rarity and the lack of randomized clinical trials, the best treatment is still under debate. Some recent reports indicate that adjuvant chemotherapy (CT) may have a beneficial effect on survival. Our goal was to evaluate this finding using a large series of patients with neuroendocrine tumours obtained from the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons database.

Abstract

Large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNC) is a rare tumour characterized by aggressive biological behaviour and poor prognosis. Due to its rarity and the lack of randomized clinical trials, the best treatment is still under debate. Some recent reports indicate that adjuvant chemotherapy (CT) may have a beneficial effect on survival. Our goal was to evaluate this finding using a large series of patients with neuroendocrine tumours obtained from the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons database.
