#455 Depression and Carcinoid Syndrome: Is There Any Relationship? A Cross-Sectional Study
Introduction: The relationship between brain serotonin and depression is well-established. It is also widely accepted that serotonin hyperproduction in carcinoid syndrome does not cross the brain barrier. CNS serotonin is synthesised from tryptophan within serotonergic neurons and a deficiency of this precursor could be possible on carcinoid patients.

#683 Liver Resection Experience for Metastatic Small Bowel NETs, a Single Center Experience
Introduction: Over the last two decades, the role of surgery in the management of small bowel NETs (SBNET) has evolved. There is growing evidence supporting the role of liver resection for metastatic disease.

#684 Clinical Characteristics and Survival of Neuroendocrine Tumors of Unknown Primary
Introduction: NETs of unknown primary account for 10-15% of NETs. There is limited published literature on this group of NETs.

#893 The Role of Primary Resection and Hepatic Resection in the Management of Metastatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors with Irresectable Liver Metastases
Introduction: More than 40% of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PNET) patients have liver metastases (LM) at diagnosis. Whilst it is agreed that, where possible, curative surgery offers the best outcomes, the role of debulking surgery in the context of irresectable LM remains unclear.

#1209 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Incidentalomas: When is Surgery in the Patient’s Best Interests?
Introduction: Small PNETs, many of which are diagnosed incidentally, pose a management dilemma. Whilst resection offers curative outcomes, the risks of surgery have led many to adopt surveillance strategies. 2cm is often used as a threshold for malignancy, but reports suggest that this value may not be valid.

#1233 CA 19-9: A Novel Role in the Prognosis of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Prognostication is difficult for neuroendocrine tumours given their long survival. Staging, grading using Ki67 and receptor status are tools commonly used, but are not without their limitations. CA 19-9 is a tumour marker used in the diagnosis and follow-up of pancreatic adenocarcinomas despite multiple confounding factors, including jaundice. CA 19-9 is not useful in the diagnosis of PNETs having a sensitivity of only 19%, but it is not known whether it has other roles in PNETs.

#1239 Histological Classification of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours: Optimising the Ki67 System
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours are graded using the Ki67 antigen in accordance with the WHO 2010 classification. Despite the system’s widespread use, a wide variety of tumour behaviours have been described leading to various proposed revisions.

#2195 Audit of a New Nurse-Led Non-Medical Prescribing (NMP) Clinic for Systemic Anti-Cancer Agents (SACTs)
Introduction: The number of people living with cancer in the UK continues to rise with increased demands on specialist cancer care services. NET incidence and prevalence increases alongside this demand. NETs remain a rare cancer with specialist needs. The clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is ideally placed to support these patients. Oncology clinics are increasingly pressured, the need to think of innovative ways of reducing strain whilst maintaining and enhancing the patients experience is important. To address this we set up a nurse-led SACT NMP clinic alongside the oncology clinic to improve patient experience and reduce oncologist clinic review.
