#368 The Role of Image and Chromogranin A Level at Diagnosis: A Portuguese Review of 19 Patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) constitute a heterogeneous group of neoplasms. Biochemical neuroendocrine markers offer high sensitivity in establishing the diagnosis and, if correlated with image assessment, can provide important prognostic information.

#536 Orexins Exert a Pro-Apoptotic Effect on Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) in an Ex Vivo Culture Model of Tissue Slices
Introduction: Ex vivo culture models of tissue slices are suitable to test the effect of antitumor agents in human tumors. The orexins are neuropeptides binding to G protein-coupled receptors (OX1-R and OX2-R), exerting a pro-apoptotic effect in human colon and pancreatic cancer cell lines.

#898 Evaluation of Tumor Response to Targeted Therapies in Precision-Cut Slices of Human Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Patients with PNET might benefit from new therapeutic approaches acting on the mTOR signaling pathway. Culture of precision-cut slices could allow testing these molecules in human tumors, allowing personalized treatments.

#1544 Immunohistochemical Expression of Estrogen and Progesterone Receptors in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Expression of progesterone (PR) and estrogen receptor (ER) in some neuroendocrine tumors (NET) raises the possibility of hormonal regulation in these tumors, but those prevalence and clinical implication are unknown.
Conference: 13th Annual ENETS conference (2016)
Category: Basic Science - mTOR and other pathways, signalling, receptors

#1548 Clinicopathological Features and Prognosis of Neuroendocrine Tumors: Analysis from a Single-Institution in Brazil
Introduction: In Brazil, information on neuroendocrine tumors (NET) is scarce. We summarized data in our center to increase knowledge of this disease in Brazilian population.

#1552 Liver Transplantation for Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are rare neoplasms and liver transplantation (LT) for hepatic metastases is indicated in selected cases where other therapies have failed.

#1557 Dual High Throughput Proteomic and Transcriptomic Screen for Predictive Biomarkers of Everolimus Sensitivity in Pancreatic NET
Introduction: mTOR inhibitor Everolimus is approved for the treatment of well-differentiated PNET. The heterogeneity of the response rate and the potential toxicity warrant predictive biomarkers.
