A Role for Vitamin D in the Gastro-Entero-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Outcome: Report on a Series from a Single Institute.  Abstract #1656

Introduction: Vitamin D deficiency is hypothesized to represent a risk factor in several neoplasms.
Aim(s): The aim of this study was to determine whether serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHvitD) deficiency represents a risk factor for neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) and can be associated to overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS).
Materials and methods: From 2010 to 2015 138 patients with gastro-entero-pancreatic NENs (F=61, median age 63 years) were included in the study. Serum 25-OHvitD levels, measured at baseline, were defined as deficient if <20 ng/ml. In such cases 25-OHvitD supplementation was administered to the patients. The possible associations between 25-OHvitD levels and disease grading, staging, overall OS and PFS were considered. Furthermore, the possible association between 25-OHvitD supplementation and PFS or OS was evaluated by Cox’s proportional hazards regression.

#1288 Vitamin D Deficiency as a Risk Factor in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Report from a Series at a Single Institute
Introduction: Vitamin D deficiency (VitDdef) is hypothesized to represent a risk factor in several neoplasms. To date, vitamin D levels have not been previously evaluated in patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (pNENs).

#1289 Reduced 25-OH-Vitamin D Levels in Patients with Chronic Autoimmune Atrophic Gastritis
Introduction: Chronic atrophic autoimmune gastritis (CAAG) is characterized by parietal cells disruption leading to hypochlorhydria and vitamin B12 malabsorption. An increased risk of osteoporosis was reported in patients with long-standing hypochlorhydria. Only few studies reported a possible association between CAAG and 25OHVitamin D (25OHvitD) deficiency.

#2772 Vitamin Supplementation and a Personalized Diet in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors: The DIVIT Study
Introduction: Patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are at risk for vitamin deficiencies and poor nutritional status due to excessive serotonin production, diarrhea, previous gastrointestinal surgery, and/or treatment with somatostatin analogues (SSA). Little knowledge exists about vitamin deficiency and how patients should be supported for the deficiencies they develop during their long-lasting disease.

#1998 Vitamin D, Bone Mineral Density and Fracture Risk Assessment in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Some papers have recently described an association between neuroendrocrine tumors (NET) and both vitamin D deficiency (VDD) and low bone mineral density (BMD). The ten-year risk of osteoporotic fractures can be calculated with the FRAX algorithm.
