#435 Olfactory Receptor 51E1 is a Novel Potential Tissue Biomarker for the Diagnosis and Prognosis of Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) get late diagnosis. We discovered the olfactory receptor 51E1 (OR51E1) as a potential target to develop as a novel biomarker.

#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.

#47 Plasma CCN2/connective tissue growth factor is associated with right ventricular dysfunction in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) is a known complication of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), particularly of those arising from the small intestine, appendix and proximal colon (previously known as mid-gut carcinoids). CHD is characterized by right heart fibrotic lesions and has traditionally been defined by the degree of valvular involvement, most commonly in the form of tricuspid regurgitation. Right ventricular (RV) dysfunction due to mural involvement may also be a manifestation. Connective tissue growth factor (CCN2) is upregulated in many fibrotic disorders. Increased tumor expression of CCN2 has been shown in patients with small intestinal NETs associated with peritoneal fibrosis. At present, its role in carcinoid heart disease is unknown.

#583 Olfactory Receptor 51E1 is a Potential Novel Tissue Biomarker for the Diagnosis and Prognosis of Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine tumor (SI-NET) patients get late diagnosis. We reported olfactory receptor 51E1 (OR51E1) as a SI-NET-mRNA marker.

#104 Myocardial motion abnormalities in patients with carcinoid disease without overt carcinoid heart disease
Introduction: Cardiac abnormalities occur in 15-70% of patients with carcinoid disease, typified by fibrosis of the right-sided valves. Myocardial motion abnormalities in subjects without overt carcinoid heart disease have not been previously described. Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI) allows quantative analysis of myocardial motion. We used this technique to investigate whether myocardial motion is reduced, suggesting fibrosis, in patients with carcinoid disease.

#230 Long-term Follow-up of Tissue Valve Prostheses in Carcinoid Heart Disease
Introduction: Development of carcinoid heart disease (CHD) increases morbidity and mortality. Cardiac valve replacement surgery improves functional class, but tissue prosthesis degeneration can occur early in CHD.

#898 Evaluation of Tumor Response to Targeted Therapies in Precision-Cut Slices of Human Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Patients with PNET might benefit from new therapeutic approaches acting on the mTOR signaling pathway. Culture of precision-cut slices could allow testing these molecules in human tumors, allowing personalized treatments.

#174 Loss of Expression of the DNA Mismatch Repair Proteins MLH1 and MSH2 is Rare in Pancreatic and Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Loss of expression of the DNA mismatch repair (MMR) proteins MLH1 and MSH2, which is known to correlate strongly with MSI, has not been well studied in pancreatic or small intestinal NETs.

#175 The Immunohistochemical (IHC) Expression and Prognostic Value of ER, PR, and HER2/neu in Pancreatic and Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: There has been limited study of ER and PR expression in gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors (GINETs) and data on HER2/neu overexpression in GINETS has been conflicting.

#393 Tumor Response Assessment to Treatment with [177Lu-DOTA0,Tyr3]Octreotate in Patients with Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Differential Response of Bone Versus Soft Tissue Lesions
Introduction: Little is known about the treatment response of bone lesions to treatment with [177Lu-DOTA0,Tyr3]octreotate (177Lu-octreotate).
