#2955 Development of an EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire for Patients with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours: Phases 1-3

Introduction: Measuring quality of life (QoL) in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (pNET) involves assessing issues from symptoms, disease and treatment. The validated gastrointestinal NETs module (EORTC QLQ-GINET21) is used with EORTC QLQ-C30 but there are concerns it inadequately measures QoL in pNET.

#2269 Can Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1), IGF-1 Receptor, Connective Tissue Growth Factor and Ki-67 Labelling Index Have a Prognostic Role in Pulmonary Carcinoids?

Introduction: Altered expression of Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1), its receptor (IGF-1R), Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) and Hypoxia Factor-1 (HIF-1), has been implicated in tumorigenesis. These factors have not been studied systematically in Pulmonary Carcinoids (PCs).

#1859 The Prevalence of Intestinal Metaplasia in Patients with Gastric Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Type 1

#911 Immunohistochemical Expression of Connective Tissue Growth Factor and Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 in Lung Carcinoids

Introduction: Several studies have shown altered expression of Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) and its receptor (IGF-1R) in different types of cancers. Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) is triggered by Serotonin (5-HT) and Hypoxia Induced Factor 1 (HIF-1) and has been associated with tumor expansion and desmoplastic reaction in carcinoid tumors.

#478 Right Hemicolectomy in the Treatment of Patients with Appendiceal Neuroendocrine Tumors: Does Size Matter?

Introduction: A recent study of a small series of patients with appendiceal neuroendocrine tumors (ANETs) fulfilling various criteria for right hemicolectomy (RHC) revealed that approximately 25% may harbor identifiable extra-appendiceal disease. The residual disease might not have been detected using the latest European Neuroendocrine Tumors Society (ENETS) revised pathological criteria.
