#69 Frequent biological association of Merkel cell polyomavirus with Merkel cell carcinomas
Introduction: Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCPyV) DNA has been detected by PCR in 75–100% of Merkel cell carcinomas (MCC), an aggressive neuroendocrine skin cancer. MCPyV is a 5.4 kb DNA virus that expresses tumor (T) antigen in tumor tissues.

#131 Efficacy and safety results from a Phase II study of pasireotide (SOM230) in the treatment of patients with metastatic NETs refractory or resistant to octreotide LAR
Introduction: Pasireotide, a multi-receptor targeted somatostatin analogue, has 30-, 5- and 39-fold greater affinity for sst1,3 and sst5 receptors, respectively, and a slightly lower affinity for sst2, than octreotide. Because of this multi-receptor binding profile, pasireotide may be effective in controlling symptoms of carcinoid syndrome in patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) who are no longer responsive to currently available somatostatin analogues.

#193 Paraneoplastic Antigen Ma2 Autoantibodies as Specific Blood Biomarkers for Detection of Early Recurrence of Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) are rare fatal cancers. Many patients develop metastatis before diagnosis. There is no available curative treatment for patients with metastasis.

#614 The Effect of Patient and Doctors Delay in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: The diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors (NET) is often delayed due to the vague symptoms and rareness of the disease.

#732 Impact of Prior Chemotherapy (CT) and Somatostatin Analogues (SSAs) on Clinical Outcome in Well-Differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (pWDNETs) before Treatment of Everolimus (EV)
Introduction: In the phase III RADIANT-3 trial, EV demonstrated a significant improvement in PFS with a median of 11.0 v. 4.6 months (mo) for placebo in pWDNETs pts.

#838 Succinate Dehydrogenase Subunit B (SDHB) Immunohistochemistry Should Not Replace Clinical Genetic Testing for SDHx Mutations in Patients with Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma
Introduction: Mutations in any of the subunits of the succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) complex predispose to PCC/PGL. Knowing the germline mutation is important for surveillance for recurrence, metastatic disease or more primary tumors and for screening affected family members. Expression of SDHB protein by immunohistochemistry (IHC) has been proposed as a surrogate marker for SDHx mutation status, with absent or decreased expression of SDHB suggesting the presence of a germline SDHB mutation or disruption of the SDH complex by mutation in another subunit.
