#2978 Policy Barriers to Increasing Access to Radioligand Therapy for Neuroendocrine Cancers
Introduction: Radioligand therapy is a relatively new treatment approach used in a small number of neuroendocrine cancers and has been shown to improve overall survival and quality of life. Yet because it uses radioactivity, there are particular barriers to its greater integration into cancer care. As neuroendocrine cancers are rare, it is all the more urgent that these barriers be understood and overcome so that this treatment modality can become available to all patients who may benefit.

#2958 The Blood-based Multigenomic NETest Accurately Identifies Neuroendocrine Transformed Prostate Cancer
Introduction: Neuroendocrine differentiation and an aggressive phenotype is an important feature of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). Current biomarkers are unable to detect these advanced, treatment refractory variants.

#2910 Virotherapy Shows Promising Efficacy in Neuroendocrine Cancers
Introduction: So far, there have been only two clinical studies using virotherapeutics to treat neuroendocrine cancers (NCT00314925 & NCT02749331). Notably, none of these approaches employed a clinically approved virotherapeutic compound.

#2992 The PanNENomics Project: A Call for an International Collaborative Effort Built on the Success of the LungNENomics Project
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors are rare understudied diseases at the molecular level, especially those occurring in sites outside the lung and the gastrointestinal track. This lack of knowledge has strong implications for the clinical management of these diseases (Rindi et al. Mad Pathol 2018).

#2745 Integrative Genomic Characterization Identifies Molecular Subtypes of Lung Carcinoids
Introduction: Lung carcinoids (LCs) are rare and slow growing primary lung neuroendocrine tumors. The WHO classify LCs into atypical and typical carcinoids. Recent studies have shown that the reproducibility of LCs classification and its prognostic efficacy have high interobserver variability
