This is a prospective, single-armed, open label study on the efficacy and safety of sequential IP therapy(Irinotecan plus cisplatin) and octreotide lar in the treatment of GI poorly diffrentiated Neuroendocrine carcinoma. Patient with written consents will enter the phase one step of the trial, receiving IP therpy. Once the IP therapy has been finished without disease progression or progression occurs during the treatment, the patient will enter the phase two step of the trial, receiving octreotide treatment. The primary endpoint is progression free survival in the two steps respectively and secondary endpoint is disease control rate, overall survival and safety

Condition Intervention Phase
Progression Free Survival of the Treatment
Drug: Irinotecan combined with cisplatin, octreotide lar

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival for Irinotecan plus cisplatin and octreotide [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary objective is to investigate the overall progression free suvival for irinotecan plus cisplatin and octretide. The respective PFS of the two treatment steps will also be investigated. The result will be compared with the history treatment outcomes for patients of poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease control rate [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The second objective includes the disease control rate of irinotecan plus cisplatin and octretide theray.

  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The secondary objective includes the investigation of the overall survival for the patients receiving the sequential treatment of irinotecan plus cisplatin and octretide.

  • Safety [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The secondary objective also includes the investigation on the safety profiles of the two interventions, irinotecan plus cisplatin treatment and octretide. The safety profile will be described using incidence of AEs and SAEs, using CTCAE criteria
