#2989 Different Social Media Neuroendocrine Tumor Indexing Strategies Used by Physicians and Advocacy Groups
Introduction: The use of Twitter to disseminate medical content has increased over the last decade. Although Twitter activity by oncologists is clustered around international conferences, advocacy groups have different temporal social media patterns. Furthermore, given the non-standardized method of indexing tweets using Twitter hashtags, it can be difficult to follow the full breadth of a topic.

#3077 Insights into the Practice Patterns, Challenges and the Role of a Shared Care Model in the Management of Neuroendocrine (NET) Patients in the Community
Introduction: Management of NET patients often involves a multidisciplinary approach,requiring collaboration between referring oncologists,surgeons,endocrinologists locally and NET specialty centers (NSC).

#97 The role of Ki-67 in the prognosis and management of neuroendocrine (NET) patients in a multdisciplinary cancer center
Introduction: The role of Ki-67 in NETs has become increasingly important, especially in light of the current trend in oncology to incorporate pathological molecular characteristics in determining treatment. In North America, Ki-67 is used inconsistently, as there exists some debate in the literature about its predictive value.

#128 Multidisciplinary reference centers: the need for combined expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of malignancies with increasing incidence (Yao et al. J Clin Oncol 2008;26:3063–72). Multidisciplinary reference centers (MRCs) can potentially offer better clinical outcomes by integrating and coordinating expert care from many specialties, reducing delays in treatments and referrals, and allowing for accrual to clinical trials. MRCs have achieved improved outcomes in ovarian, breast and lung cancers (Pollock. Ann Surg 2008;248:510–6; Gabel et al. Cancer 1997;79:2380–4; Forrest et al. Br J Cancer 2005;93:977–8). Despite this, MRCs focusing on NETs are uncommon.

#158 Progression-free survival (PFS) as a primary endpoint for clinical studies in advanced neuroendocrine tumors (NETs)
Introduction: Successfully testing new antitumor agents requires primary study endpoints that are clinically important, and also provide sufficient statistical power within a timeframe and population size that is feasible for the tumor type. Using overall survival (OS) as the primary endpoint in NET studies is challenging because of the low incidence (5.25/100,000 annually), disease heterogeneity, extended survival time (Yao 2008), and confounding effects of multiple therapies. These inherent aspects of NETs make OS an extremely difficult and challenging endpoint to evaluate clinical efficacy.

#312 Evidence for the role of miR196a in regulating small intestinal neuroendocrine tumor proliferation and metastasis via HOX/AKT pathway activation
Introduction: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis functioning as tumor suppressor genes but their role in NET proliferation and metastasis has not been fully evaluated.
