#220 The Global mTOR Inhibitor Torin1 is More Effective than the mTORC1 Inhibitor, Everolimus, Alone or in Combination with Histone Deacetylases Inhibitors, in Suppressing Neuroendocrine Tumors Cell Proliferation
Introduction: Torin1, a new mTOR inhibitor that globally inhibits both mTORC1 and mTORC2, seems to impair cell growth and proliferation to a greater degree than rapamycin; its effects in NET cells are unknown.

#549 Long-Acting Somatostatin Analogues are Highly Effective in Patients with Early Stage MEN-1-Related Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Somatostatin analogues (SSA) represent one of the main therapeutic options in patients affected with functioning well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NET). There are no studies specifically focusing on NET associated to Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1).

#1892 Feasibility and Implication of Routine NGS Analysis in Neuroendocrine Carcinomas
Introduction: Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) may arise from any organ system, exhibit various degree of differentiation and have Ki67 indices ranging from 21-100%. After first-line platin based chemotherapy, no standard treatment exists.
