This 2 arm study will assess the efficacy and safety of two systemic treatments including Avastin in patients with previously-untreated progressive locally advanced/metastatic well-differentiated digestive endocrine tumors. Patients with duodeno-pancreatic tumors (arm 1) will be treated with 5FU/streptozotocin iv (5FU 400mg/m2/d D1 to D5;streptozotocin 500mg/m2/d/iv D1 to D5;D1=D42) every 6 weeks, plus Avastin 7.5mg/kg iv every 3 weeks. Patients with gastrointestinal tract tumors (arm 2) will be treated with Xeloda 1000mg/m2 po bid D1 to D14 plus Avastin 7.5mg/kg iv D1=D21 every 3 weeks. The patients will be treated with chemotherapy for a minimum of 6 months, unless there is tumor progression and/or unacceptable toxicity. The anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity, and the target sample size is <100 individuals.

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.
