#594 Neurokinin A Levels Predict Survival in Patients with Well-Differentiated Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Recent European investigations demonstrated that persistently elevated (> 50 pg/ml) plasma neurokinin A (NKA) levels are associated with poor short-term survival in patients with midgut neuroendocrine tumors (NETS).

#105 A pilot study using biochemical markers to predict acrcinoid heart disease in patients with carcinoid disease
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) affects up to 15-70% of patients with carcinoid disease. Recent ENETS guidelines recommend regular echocardiographic assessment to screen for CHD. Chromogranin A (CgA) is a peptide widely used to monitor carcinoid disease progression. Neurokinin A is a tachykinin which may be a more sensitive measure of carcinoid disease progression and prognosis. N-terminal pro Brain Naturetic Peptide is used as a screening tool for heart failure and recent results suggest utility in the diagnosis of CHD.

#899 Evaluation of the Clinical Utility of Plasma Biomarkers in Diagnosis of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare cancers that usually develop in the gastroenterohepatic system. Diagnostic workup of these tumors includes measurement of plasma levels of marker peptides. Clinical experience suggests that these markers may be misleading if used before histological or imaging evidence of a NET is available.

#671 Comparison of the Utility of Biochemical Markers in Predicting the Presence and Severity of Carcinoid Heart Disease
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) is a complication of metastatic neuroendocrine disease and is screened for using echocardiography.

#2967 Longitudinal Changes in Plasma 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid (5-HIAA) and Other Biomarkers during Treatment of Functional Midgut Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) with Lanreotide Autogel: CALM NET Study Results
Introduction: CALM-NET (EudraCT 2013-002194-22; NCT02075606) evaluated pre-treatment circulating tumour cell levels in patients with NETs as a predictor of response to lanreotide autogel (LAN).
