#2770 Evaluation of Early Predictors of Metabolic Syndrome in Patients with Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NET)
Introduction: Metabolic syndrome and obesity (MetS) are supposed to have a role in cancer but data analysing their association with GEP-NET are lacking.

#2798 Risk of Pre-Operative Understaging of Duodenal Neuroendocrine Tumors at Conventional Imaging: When Surgery Becomes the First Choice
Introduction: Duodenal neuroendocrine neoplasms (dNENs) are heterogeneous tumors that can exhibit aggressive behavior, with loco-regional nodes and distant metastases. Pre-treatment staging is the basis for planning either surgical or endoscopic treatment.

#2809 Sporadic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms in Young Adult Patients: Natural History, Prognosis and Management
Introduction: Data specific to sporadic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) in young adult patients (pts) are limited due to its rare occurrence.

#2813 Clinical Presentation and Prognosis of Patients with Medullary Thyroid Cancer
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is a rare type of tumor that originates from parafollicular C-cells and accounts for 3–4% of all malignant thyroid neoplasms. MTC presents as sporadic (75–80%) or inherited tumors (20–25%). Hereditary MTC is part of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2).

#2815 Unexpected High Rate of Metastases in Type 1 Gastric Neuroendocrine Neoplasia
Introduction: Gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms (gNEN) represent about 7.5% of gastroenteropancreatic NEN (gepNEN), classified in: type 1 (70-80%), related to autoimmune gastritis, type 2 (5%), related to Zollinger-Ellison syndrome in multiple endocrine neoplasia 1 and type 3 (15-20%), in absence of hypergastrinemia or mucosal atrophy.

#146 Recurrence characteristics in resected pulmonary typical and atypical carcinoids
Introduction: Pulmonary typical and atypical carcinoids are widely considered indolent, although they can metastasize even with a very long relapse free interval. No standard follow-up strategy exists after a radical resection.

#904 Role of Metformin on Recurrence-Free Survival (RFS) in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET)
Introduction: Recent data suggest metformin (Met) has antineoplastic properties in different type of cancer. Effects of Met have never been investigated in NET.

#1187 High-Dose Treatment with Somatostatin Analogs in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Somatostatin analogs (SSA) effectively control symptoms in neuroendocrine tumours (NET), besides showing antiproliferative activity. In progressive or metastatic NET, increasing SSA dose or shortening the dosing interval are common clinical practice, though empirical.

#1191 Efficacy of Lanreotide versus Follow-up in Early-stage Duodeno-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Related to Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 (MEN1): Preliminary Data
Introduction: Surgery is the only curative approach for NETs, representing the first-line therapy. As most pts with MEN1 have multiple duodeno-pancreatic NETs, cure is generally not possible, unless to adopt radical surgery. Somatostatin analogues (SSAs) represent one of the main therapeutic option in functioning well-differentiated NETs. There are no perspective studies focusing on MEN1-related NETs.

#1226 Follow Up of ≤ 2 cm Non Functioning Pancreatic NETs in Patients with MEN1 Treated with Conservative Approach
Introduction: There is a current trend for conservative treatment of non functioning pancreatic NET (NF-PNETs), ≤ 2 cm, in patients with MEN1, which are reported to be associated with low risk of metastasis and death.
