#527 Pheochromocytoma Molecular Analysis After Maternal Transmission of SDHD Mutation Elucidates Mechanism of Parent-of-Origin Effect
Introduction: In SDHD mutation families, paragangliomas and pheochromocytomas usually occur only after paternal transmission of the mutation. This important but unexplained parent-of-origin effect is not due to imprinting of the SDHD gene itself (as was initially suspected) since SDHD is biallelically expressed.

#2161 Outcomes of Locoregional Treatment for Unifocal Progression in Widespread Metastatic Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: New systemic treatments have improved the therapeutic landscape for patients with progressive, metastatic GEP-NETs. While drugs such as everolimus are appropriate for patients with widespread disease progression, local treatment approaches may be more appropriate for patients with unifocal progression.

#1135 The Role of External Beam Radiotherapy in the Management of Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Palliative external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) is routinely used to control symptoms and disease progression in metastatic malignancies, but there is limited data in metastatic neuroendocrine tumours (NET).

#1154 Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) Radioembolisation with 90 Yttrium in Patients with Unresectable Liver Neuroendocrine Metastases in a Specialized Center. An Initial Report
Introduction: Most patients with neuroendocrine tumors present liver metastases at some point of the clinical course. Liver directed treatment, such as 90 Yttrium is a method of treatment used in patients with non-resectable liver lesions, which is effective in the control of symptoms and tumor growth.

#447 SOMscan: Towards a Ga-68-labeled Pan-Somatostatin PET Imaging Probe Based on SOM230 (Pasireotide)
Introduction: The somatostatin receptor subtype sst2 is largely expressed on neuroendocrine tumors. However, current clinical studies indicate that the subtypes sst1, 3, 5 are of substantial relevance as well.

#557 The Role of Chemotherapy in the Management of Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NETs): The Large Experience of the Spanish National Tumor Registry (RGETNE)
Introduction: GEPNETs represent a heterogenous family of tumors of challenging clinical management. Treatment of advanced disease is evolving, including some recent relevant achievements with novel targeted agents. How to best integrate these new agents with conventional chemotherapy(CT) is still a matter of debate.

#966 Evaluation of Lysyl Oxidase-Like-2 (LOXL2) Expression by Immunohistochemistry (IHC) in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NET): A Retrospective Analysis and Comparison with PTEN
Introduction: A better understanding of the relationship between the stroma and the cancer cells of this group of malignancies remains a challenge. LOXL2 is an enzyme that contributes to the synthesis and stabilization of the cellular matrix and plays a role in angiogenesis.
