#1866 NET – Incidental Findings: Small, Silent and Innocent?
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are rare neoplasms, with an overall incidence of 2 cases per 100,000 individuals per year. This number is increasing due to improved diagnosis, classification and higher imaging sensitivity, which lead to discovering of small and clinically insignificant NETs.

#897 A Molecular Multi-Transcript Gene Blood Signature Significantly Outperforms Chromogranin A (CgA) in the Detection of Gut Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: A key issue in NET management is the need for a specific and sensitive biomarker to detect disease and assess treatment. CgA is widely utilized but has limitations.

#913 A PCR-Based Multigene Transcript Analysis Blood Test Outperforms Chromogranin A in the Detection of Gastrointestinal and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors and is Unaffected by PPI Use or Hypertension
Introduction: A critical requirement in the management of gut NETs is a blood biomarker test that is sensitive, specific and reproducible.

#1195 Neuroendocrine Gene Transcript Analysis of Blood Identifies Stable or Progressive NET Disease Treated with Somatostatin Analogs.
Introduction: An issue in NET management is defining stable or progressive disease and effective treatment. An alternative to RECIST criteria is a sensitive, reproducible blood biomarker test. Somatostatin analogs (SSA) are a chief therapy but efficacy is subjective and based on symptom control and imaging.

#1212 Circulating Gene Transcript Analysis of Pancreatic NETs
Introduction: PNETs are aggressive with poor survival. Therapeutic agents are available but efficacy determination is limited by imaging insensitivity and the lack of effective blood biomarkers.

#2218 More than Rare Pheochromocytomas: Bilateral and Hemorrhagic, Giant and Metastatic
Introduction: Pheochromocytomas (PCC) are rare neuroendocrine tumors. These catecholamine-secreting tumors, with an average size of 4.9cm, are multiple in 10% of cases. About 10% are malignant but distant metastases are rare. Non-traumatic adrenal hemorrhage is an unusual potentially fatal event seen in PCC.
