#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.

#2980 Metabolic Dysregulation and Circadian Clock in Cellular Models of Neuroendocrine Tumors

Introduction: The circadian clock genes encode transcription factors whose interaction with nuclear receptors allows the regulation of cellular metabolism.The invalidation of the genes of the clock core is associated with the development of many endocrine diseases including neuroendocrine cancer. Recently, the family of transcriptional coactivators PGC-1a has been identified as a key element in the integration of cellular metabolic state with the circadian clock. PRC, as a member of the PGC-1 family, was able to interact with several transcription factors, including the CLOCK factor. The specific induction of this PRC factor by the cell cycle, to modulate the energy function, the MAPkinase pathway and the expression of microRNAs, makes it a key factor in the metabolic adaptation of cancer cells.

#2906 Change of Lactate Transporter (MCT4) Expression in Pancreatic Microadenomas and Stages of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors

Introduction: Metabolic changes are observed in early and late stages of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PanNET) in mouse models. In human PanNET, RNA-expression analysis showed changes in glucose metabolism in more aggressive PanNET.

#2776 The Effects of Somatostatin Analogues on HbA1c and BMI in the Treatment of Neuroendocrine Tumours

Introduction: Long acting somatostatin analogues (SSA) are the most commonly used drugs in the management of neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) due to their ability to control symptoms and prolong survival. SSAs use is associated with changes in glucose metabolism. However, there is lack of data for such effects in patients with NETs. We evaluated the effects of SSA on BMI and HbA1c in our cohort of patients with NETs.

#2287 Mitochondrial or Aerobic Glycolysis Oriented Metabolism May Define Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PanNET) Resistance to mTOR-Targeting Therapies

Introduction: The mTOR inhibitor Everolimus is approved for the treatment of PanNET and no predictive biomarker is available. mTOR is a central node controlling mitochondrial and aerobic glycolytic metabolisms.

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.
