#160 The role of T-type calcium channels in medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC): T-type calcium channel blockers inhibit hormone secretion and induce apoptotic cell death in a human MTC cell line
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) accounts for approximately 5-10% of thyroid cancers. In the case of tumors limited to the thyroid gland, the prognosis is generally favorable, whereas 5-year survival averages only 40% in patients with metastatic disease. In these patients, conventional chemotherapy only occasionally leads to a complete response and partial responses are observed in less than 30% of the cases. Therefore, intense efforts are currently directed toward the identification of new druggable targets for the treatment of this devastating disease.

#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.

#338 Pancreatic Endocrine Tumors: TNM staging and WHO Grading Relation with Prognosis
Introduction: Pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs) are heterogeneous, rare neoplasms (large experience is unlikely). Prognostic stratification based on TNM staging and WHO grading is still under debate.

#368 The Role of Image and Chromogranin A Level at Diagnosis: A Portuguese Review of 19 Patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) constitute a heterogeneous group of neoplasms. Biochemical neuroendocrine markers offer high sensitivity in establishing the diagnosis and, if correlated with image assessment, can provide important prognostic information.

#782 Appendix Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors (A-WDNETs) at a Large Tertiary Center: Clinical-Pathological Features and Long-Term Follow-Up Evaluation
Introduction: A-WDNETs comprise 32-57% of appendix tumors, diagnosed incidentally in 0.3-0.9% appendectomies (AP). Overall survival is good, but malignant behavior remains controversial.

#1215 Describing NENs: Just Clinical/Biologic Features or Actual Prognostic Factors?
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasias (NENs) are a rare group of diseases, with several possible locations and manifestations, often representing a challenging diagnosis. It is essential to improve tools that accurately predict aggressiveness and prognosis.

#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

#2218 More than Rare Pheochromocytomas: Bilateral and Hemorrhagic, Giant and Metastatic
Introduction: Pheochromocytomas (PCC) are rare neuroendocrine tumors. These catecholamine-secreting tumors, with an average size of 4.9cm, are multiple in 10% of cases. About 10% are malignant but distant metastases are rare. Non-traumatic adrenal hemorrhage is an unusual potentially fatal event seen in PCC.
