#25 Predictors of response to radio-embolization (TheraSphere ®) treatment of neuro-endocrine liver metastasis
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) frequently metastasize to the liver. Most patients have diffuse, and therefore incurable, disease. NET liver metastasis has been shown to respond to yttrium-90 microspheres therapy. This study aims to define factors that predict response to radio-embolization in patients with NET liver metastases.

#788 A Novel Animal Model for Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is a neuroendocrine cancer originating from calcitonin-producing C-cells. Surgical resection is the most effective treatment currently available. Understanding the molecular pathways mediating MTC is crucial for the development of novel therapies. Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (Cdk5) and its activators, p35 and p25, have recently been implicated in MTC etiology. P25 is a cleavage product of p35 and the binding of p25 to Cdk5 leads to aberrant Cdk5 activity.
