#2999 Aberrant Tryptophan Metabolism in Stromal Cells Is Associated with Mesenteric Fibrosis in Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumours

Introduction: Increased levels of serotonin secretion are associated with mesenteric fibrosis (MF) in small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs). However, only a proportion of patients with increased serotonin production will develop mesenteric fibrosis.

#2995 Prediction of Symptomatic Mesenteric Mass in Patients with Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors Using a CT Radiomics Approach

Introduction: A mesenteric mass surrounded by fibrosis is a hallmark feature of small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) that can induce severe abdominal complications. To improve clinical outcome, there is a need for personalized treatment strategies based on accurate prediction of development of abdominal complications.

#2944 Soluble ST2 (sST2) Levels in the Management of Carcinoid Heart Disease in Patients with Neuroendocrine Cancer

Introduction: The identification of a sensitive biomarker to detect the presence and severity of carcinoid heart disease could allow more selective use of clinical and echocardiographic screening. ST2 is a protein belonging to the family of interleukin 1 receptors, present both in the isoform of transmembrane (ST2L) and in the soluble one (sST2). sST2 blocks the anti-inflammatory, anti-hypertrophic, and anti-fibrotic effects of cytokine IL-33 on the myocardium and recent studies have shown that sST2 levels increase in the blood of patients diagnosed with heart failure.

#2833 Surgical Correction of Carcinoid Heart Disease Improves Liver Function and 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid Levels

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours of the gastrointestinal tract cause carcinoid syndrome and carcinoid heart disease. These tumours secrete serotonin, which can bind to heart valves and cause fibrosis and valve incompetence. Most cases involve the tricuspid valve +/- pulmonary valve. Medical management comprises diuretics for fluid overload and somatostatin analogues to reduce circulating serotonin. Definitive treatment is heart-valve replacement surgery which improves exercise tolerance but has high perioperative mortality. We have previously reported that valve-replacement surgery can reduce 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) levels, reflecting a decline in hormone activity.

Abstract Submissions in 2023

Abstract submissions for 2023 will open in September 2022!

 

The 20th Annual ENETS Conference in 2023 will provide the principal platform for NET researchers around the world to present their latest findings. ENETS will select the best abstracts submitted in both clinical and basic science and present these in sessions within the framework of its scientific programme.

 

Participants of the ENETS Conferences in 2022 can now access the abstract booklet, e-posters and videos, the poster carousel, and more via My ENETS.
