#286 Aberrant Expression of FSH Receptor in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: FSH receptor (FSHR) expression is restricted to gonads. FSHR plays an important role in regulation of ovarian angiogenesis. Recently, FHSR expression has been shown in blood vessels of various tumors.

#392 A 67-Year Old Woman with a Carcinoid Tumor of the Coccyx with Liver Metastases
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are tumors of the interface between the endocrine and nervous system. They are characterized by the presence of secretory granules, as well as the ability to produce biogenic amines and polypeptide hormones. The clinical behavior of NETs is extremely variable; they may be functioning or non-functioning, ranging from very slow-growing tumors, which are the majority, to highly aggressive and very malignant tumors. Many case reports of rare sites of primary NETs outside the gastrointestinal tract have been described, as tumors with neuroendocrine characteristics can occur in virtually any organ or tissue. Nevertheless, this is the first case of a metastatic coccygeal carcinoid tumor ever described.

#694 Platinum-Based Chemotherapy for the Treatment of High-Grade Gastrointestinal and Unknown Primary Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: Poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC sec. WHO 2010) are rare and aggressive neoplasms arising from different districts throughout the body. Platinum and etoposide regimen has been the most widely used first line treatment in this setting.

#895 Determination of a Prognostic Classification System in Metastatic Grade 1 and 2 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PNETs)
Introduction: There is no clinical prognostic risk stratification tool available for metastatic grade 1 and 2 PNETs, which are a heterogeneous group.

#1100 Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor 2A (CDKN2A/P16) Polymorphisms and Risk of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) represent only 1% of all pancreatic neoplasms by incidence, but 10% by prevalence. Family history of cancer is the only established risk factor so far. The impact of germline genetic variability on PNET risk is poorly understood.

#1103 Risk and Protective Factors for Midgut Carcinoid Tumours: A Case-Control Study of Prospectively Evaluated Patients
Introduction: The incidence of midgut carcinoid tumours is on the rise, but few studies have investigated risk factors for their occurrence.

#1368 Everolimus in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinomas G3
Introduction: Neuroendocrine Carcinomas (NEC) G3 are heterogeneous diseases with different behaviors, basing on tumor morphology and Ki67 value. Platinum-based chemotherapy is considered the standard treatment in these pts. However, tumors with well-moderately differentiated morphology (NET G3), with Ki67 < 55% may be considered a separate entity in terms of prognosis and therapeutic options

#1538 Safety of High Doses Lanreotide Treatment in Patients with Progressive Neuroendocrine Tumors: Results from a Prospective Phase II Trial
Introduction: Dose escalation (or interval reduction) of somatostatin analogs (SSAs) is a rather common strategy for patients (pts) with progressive metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). However, to date, no systematic prospective studies have been carried out to evaluate safety and efficacy of this treatment schedule in NETs.

#1803 Type 3 Gastric Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Relationship Between Tumor Size, Ki67 and Clinical Outcome
Introduction: Sporadic type 3 gNENs are usually malignant with high metastatic potential, mostly large, with a high grade histology. However, little is known on the relationship between tumor size, proliferative index Ki67, and clinical outcome

#1810 FOXM1 Is Strongly Associated with Cell Proliferation and Is Not Influenced by Metabolic Syndrome in GEP-NETS
Introduction: Gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors(GEP-NETs) and metabolic syndrome(MS) are both increasing exponentially. MS has been associated with several non NET cancers.
