#180 Microvessel Density and Prognosis of Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NETS)
Introduction: The role of anti-angiogenic agents in GEP-NETS remains to be established. CD105 (Endoglin) identifies the TGF-ß1 receptor which is expressed on endothelial cells involved in tumor angiogenesis.

#2077 Linked Colour Imaging Increases the Diagnostic Yield of Type 1 Gastric Carcinoids
Introduction: Type 1 Gastric carcinoid tumours (GCTs) are the most common neuroendocrine tumours of the stomach. Endoscopic diagnosis of Type 1 GCTs remains a challenge. White light endoscopy (WLE) and Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) have failed to demonstrate reliable endoscopic signs of carcinoid.

#1717 Yttrium-90 Radioembolization for Progressive Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma with Exclusive Liver Metastasis
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is a well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor and accounts for 5-10% of all thyroid cancers. Distant metastases frequently involve the liver and patient’s survival after diagnosis is around 20% at 10 years

#178 Treatment with 177Lutetium-DOTA-Tyr3-octreotate in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors express somatostatin receptors. Treatment with radiolabelled somatostatin analogs has been used for more than 10 years. Useful isotopes are 111Indium, 99Yttrium and 177Lutetium.

#271 A Novel Missense Mutation of the TMEM127 Gene that Leads to Pheochromocytoma Phenotype
Introduction: Recently, truncating germline mutations in TMEM127 gene have been identified in 30% of familial cases of adrenal pheochromocytoma (PHEO) and in 3% of apparently sporadic cases.

#362 Succinate Dehydrogenase (SDH) Complex Expression in Pancreatic Endocrine Tumours (PETs)
Introduction: Absence of SDH subunit D (SDHD) mutations were reported by Perren et al (Oncogene 2002) but loss of heterozigosity (LOH) was described in 29% of the PETs. Since SDHD gene may depict a form of genomic imprinting in neuroendocrine (NE) tissue, the reported LOH may drive activation of the hypoxia pathway. Taking advantage from the immunohistochemical (IHC) method for genetic triage we may deduce the mutational status of SDH subunits (A, B, C and D) based on IHC SDHB expression. These subunits are striking candidates as they are mutated in other NE neoplasias.

#695 Pancreatic Angiography with Selective Intra-Arterial Calcium Stimulation for the Localization of Insulinomas: A Case Report.
Introduction: Surgery is the gold standard treatment of insulinomas. Before planning the surgical procedure, the tumor must be precisely localized. Usually, the combination of Endoscopic Ultrasound, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging localize more than 80% of the tumors. But due to its small size, other more sophisticated techniques must be performed in order to improve the diagnosis accuracy. Some of them, like angiography, are invasive.
