#17 Diagnostic efficacy of the secretin stimulation test for the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome: an intra-individual comparison using different dosages in patients and controls
Introduction: The diagnosis of Zollinger-Ellison syndrome is suspected in patients with symptoms of gastric acid hypersecretion, i.e., peptic ulcer disease, malabsorption or diarrhea, or with elevated fasting serum gastrin levels. However, symptoms can be masked by the use of proton pump inhibitors and fasting serum gastrin values are not always conclusive. Therefore, the secretin stimulation test is advocated as the principal diagnostic tool to identify the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

#138 The use of F-18-FDG-PET for patients with neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Neoplastic tissue exhibits high glucose utilization, which can be imaged by 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET). Whether FDG-PET is useful for neuroendocrine (NE) tumors, however, is questionable, due to the slow growth rate often observed in these tumors.

#192 Successfull Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Alcoholic Ablation of Insulinoma
Introduction: Insulinomas are rare endocrine tumors. The golden treatment is surgical resection. EUS-guided alcohol ablation is a new promising method to treat those patients who are not surgical candidates.

#268 Temozolomide as 2.-3. line Treatment of Patients with Poorly Differentiated Neuroendocrine Carcinomas
Introduction: Knowledge of the clinical efficacy of treatment beyond first line of poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (PDEC) is sparse. Temozolomide (TMZ) has shown effect in well-differentiated NET.

#403 Insulinomas in Children
Introduction: Insulinomas are extremely rare tumors in children and an uncommon first manifestation of MEN1 syndrome. Insulinomas are usually benign tumors with only a few reports of malignant cases in children.

#468 mir-129-5p and Let-7 are Down-Regulated in Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: miRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that post-transcriptionally regulate gene expression by binding to complementary sequences on target mRNAs and their expression is often dysregulated in cancer.

#470 Overall Survival of Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors Evaluated by F-18-FDG-PET
Introduction: Today, grading, and thereby choice of treatment strategy for patients with neuroendocrine (NE) tumors, is mainly based on the proliferation index, Ki-67. As a supplement to this pathological evaluation, a whole body image analysis could be of value.

#472 Detection of Liver Metastases and Prognostic Value of Functional and Anatomical Imaging in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Liver metastases (LM) are frequent in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and are associated with decreased overall survival (OS). Several treatment options are available depending on degree, localization, size and number of LM. For optimal choice of treatment and correct staging, accurate imaging modalities are crucial.

#492 Should Primary Hyperparathyroidism at Age Below 40 Years Always Lead to Search for MEN-1, Despite Presence of Other Plausible Explanations?
Introduction: A 30-year-old female patient with inherited osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) Type 1 was referred due to hypercalcaemia and suspicion of primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT). She had serum ca2+ 1.56 mmol/L, serum parathyroid hormone 115 ng/ml (< 70), and pHPT was diagnosed, but no scan uptake. By exploratory neck surgery, all parathyroid glands were hyperplastic and 3 ½ parathyroid + thymus were removed. The HPT was hypothesised to be due to abnormal calcium metabolism from OI (J Endocrinol Invest 1999), although not described previously.

#600 Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Epidemiological Trends in Queensland, Australia
Introduction: Various studies pertaining to neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) have revealed trends in incidence and mortality over time, and regional variations. The WHO 2010 classification has attempted to more accurately reflect the differing prognoses of this heterogeneous patient population by defining various patient subsets.
