#121 Serotonin synthesis inhibitors: a novel approach for managing gastrointestinal symptoms in carcinoid syndrome
Introduction: Carcinoid syndrome (CS) occurs when metastatic carcinoid tumors secrete large amounts of serotonin (5-HT) and other bioactive substances into systemic circulation, causing a variety of symptoms, including GI symptoms such as profound diarrhea. Reduction in 5-HT production by the tumor would be expected to improve symptoms in patients with CS.

#1683 International Multicenter Retrospective Study on the Efficacy and Toxicity of Radioembolization in Neuroendocrine Tumours with Yttrium-90 Resin Microspheres
Introduction: Radioembolization (RE) is applied worldwide in patients with liver-dominant metastatic neuroendocrine tumours (mNET). Current literature is of poor quality and based on small heterogeneous populations

#2023 International Multicentre Retrospective Study on the Safety of Radioembolization with Yttrium-90 Resin Microspheres after Systemic Radionuclide Therapy in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: In the treatment metastatic neuroendocrine tumours (mNET) safety concerns exist when treating patients with radioembolization (RE) after prior systemic radionuclide therapy (SRT)

#19 Antitumor activity of Pasireotide (SOM230) alone and in combination with Everolimus (RAD001) in DU-145 human prostate cancer model
Introduction: Pasireotide (SOM230) is a novel multi-receptor ligand somatostatin analogue with high affinity for somatostatin receptor subtypes sst1,2,3 and sst5. Like octreotide, which binds primarily to sst2, it inhibits hypersecretion of hormones from patients with functional pituitary tumors and gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine (GEP/NET) tumors. In addition, tumor shrinkage has been observed with both compounds in patients with acromegaly, Cushing’s disease and GEP/NETs, but its tumor-reducing mechanism of action has so far not been revealed. In patients with breast and liver cancer, octreotide had little or no antitumor activity.

#145 Paragangliomas: a series of five cases
Introduction: Paraganglioma is a rare extraadrenal neuroendocrine tumor, composed of chromaffin cells and arising from the neural crest. The head, neck, and retroperitoneum are the most common sites for paraganglioma.

#466 HIF-1a Determines the Metastatic Potential of the GEP-NET Cell Line BON-1
Introduction: Intratumoral hypoxia is a hallmark of solid tumor formation and a negative predictor of patient survival. Adaptation to hypoxia is mainly achieved by the transcription factor HIF-1a, which is upregulated in a diverse range of human and experimental tumors and their metastases. HIF-1a target genes have been implicated in the induction of invasion and metastasis. However, HIF-1a’s tumor-supporting action depends on cell type and microenvironment and the precise role of HIF-1a for the pathogenesis of neuroendocrine tumors (NET) is largely unknown.

#773 Thymosin β4 as Putative Marker in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETS) arise from the diffuse endocrine system which produce biogenic amines and peptides that could be potential biomarker. We previously analysed proteomes secreted by NET cell lines and identified mac2BP as a putative marker which was also elevated in patients compared to healthy controls.

#2258 Cystic Duct Gastrinoma in a Patient with MEN1: A Case Report
Introduction: Gastrinomas are the most common functional enteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumour in MEN1 patients and are located almost exclusively in duodenum. Biliary tree gastrinomas are rare and accounted for 6 cases in literature. Only one of these cases was restricted to the biliary tree without associated duodenal gastrinomas.
