#720 Small-Cell Carcinoma of the Gallbladder: Case Report and Review of Literature
Introduction: Small-cell carcinomas arising in the gallbladder are extremely rare and aggressive tumors, which metastasize early, and have very poor prognosis. This histologic type of gallbladder carcinoma is more common in women than in men, usually coexists with lithiasis, and has a highly aggressive clinical behavior.

#740 Heterotopic Pancreatic Tissue Located in the Subserosa of the Jejunum: A Case Report
Introduction: Ectopic pancreas is defined as pancreatic tissue in an abnormal location with no ductal, anatomical, neuronal or vascular communication with the main body of the pancreas. The incidence of heterotopic pancreas in autopsy studies is approximately 0.6 - 15%, while the clinical incidence is 1 in 500 laparotomies. Ectopic pancreatic tissue can be present anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract.

#1494 CDK-Inhibitors as New Therapeutic Treatment for Human Bronchial Carcinoids
Introduction: Bronchial Carcinoids (BC) are still orphan of medical therapy. We previously demonstrated that 70% of primary BC cultures are sensitive to Everolimus (E), an mTOR inhibitor, while 30% are not. We also observed that in 2 human BC cell lines, the NCI-H720 (sensitive to E) and NCI-H727 (resistant to E), mTOR resistance may be linked to a differential cell cycle protein expression (CyclinD1/E, CDK2/4, p27kip1/p27kip1phospho-Ser10), which is higher in BC resistant to E as compared to sensitive ones, suggesting an impaired p27 function

#1704 Diffusion Weighted Imaging as a Screening Tool in the Detection and Monitoring of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours in Patients with Familial Cancer Syndromes.
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PNETs) occur at a higher frequency and at a younger age in patients with certain genetic conditions e.g. Von Hippel Lindau and Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1. Screening for early detection and monitoring growth rates of PNETs in these high risk patients is vital in their management. MRI has emerged as the gold standard for imaging the pancreas for the detection of PNETs and diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) has become an invaluable adjunct.
