#1107 The Chicken Chorioallantoic Membrane Assay as a Preclinical Model for the Research of Rare Gastrointenstinal Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Preclinical trials of cancer therapeutics require both in vitro and in vivo evaluations. For neuroendocrine tumours (NET) studies are limited to cell lines, thus xenograft models are needed for screening and evaluation of anti-cancer drugs. The chick chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) assay is a well-established model system to investigate tumour growth, angiogenesis and metastasis.

#349 Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) Of The Esophagus In A Patient With MEN-1 And-Related Pancreatic Gastrinoma
Introduction: Both Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1; OMIM #613733)-related-gastrinomas and Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GISTs; OMIM #606764) are rare neoplasms and their association has been rarely reported so far.

#62 Genome-wide DNA methylation profiling of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors identifies distinct methylation profiles and differentially methylated gene promoter regions associated with low, medium and high grade tumors
Introduction: Integration of genetics and epigenetics has emerged as a powerful approach to studying cellular differentiation (Mikkelsen et al, 2009) and tumorigenesis (Shen et al, 2007). The study of DNA methylation is of particular importance in cancer, as causal involvement has been demonstrated and it is the most stable of all epigenetic modifications, making it a desirable marker for both early detection and treatment of tumors. Hypermethylation of CpG sites in gene promoter regions leads to decreased gene expression; if such a gene is a tumor suppressor, this leads to carcinogenesis. To date, there have been no studies of genome-wide DNA methylation profiling of NETs. This study sets out to determine the DNA methylation profiles of low, intermediate and high grade pancreatic NET liver metastases with the intention of identifying dysregulated biological pathways in the development of these tumors. A protocol for the analysis formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue (FFPE) has also been developed in order to study these tumors in significant numbers following this pilot study.

#1696 On-going Evaluation of The Clinical Utility of the Health-Related Quality-Of-Life (HRQoL) QLQ-GINET21 Questionnaire (QNR) in the Treatment of Patients (pts) with Gastrointestinal (GI) Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs). QUALINETS Study
Introduction: Outcome measures reported by pts help to weigh benefit/effect of a therapy on quality of life (QoL), provided that their utility in clinical practice is proved. There are few QoL QNRs for pts with NETs, like QLQ-GINET21, with 21 items assessing muscle/bone pain, body image, information, sexual function, symptoms, social function and disease-related concerns.

#363 Clinicopathological characteristics are capable of predicting long-term outcome of gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumours in Germany
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours (NET) are a rare and heterogeneous group of neoplasm. Throughout the last decades the classification of NET has been both difficult and incoherent. Therefore making prognostic straticifation often difficult.

#1429 Evaluate the Accuracy of Pathological Diagnosis on Biopsy Specimens from Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Gastrointestinal neuroendocrine neoplasms (GI-NENs) is a highly heterogeneous tumor. The accuracy of pathological diagnosis on the biopsy is crucial for GI-NENs but rarely investigated
