#140 Serotonin expression in gastric neuroendocrine tumors and in foci of endocrine cell hyperplasia
Introduction: The most abundant neuroendocrine (NE) cell population of the human oxyntic mucosa is the enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells, followed by ghrelin, somatostatin and serotonin cells, respectively. All types of ECL cell carcinoids (ECL-CCs) contain serotonin cells but in a varying frequency. Hitherto, only foci of ECL and ghrelin cell hyperplasia have been described in the peritumorous mucosa of types I and II ECL-CCs. It is established that hypergastrinaemia can cause ECL cell hyperplasia but it does not affect serotonin cells. The vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT 2) is used as an immunohistochemical marker for ECL cells.

#245 Expression of Somatostatin Receptors and Dopamine 2 Receptor in Lung Carcinoids as a Possible Biotherapy Target
Introduction: Expression of somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) and dopamine 2 receptor (D2R) in neuroendocrine tumors is of clinical importance, as somatostatin analogues and dopamine agonists are used in biotherapy.

#583 Olfactory Receptor 51E1 is a Potential Novel Tissue Biomarker for the Diagnosis and Prognosis of Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine tumor (SI-NET) patients get late diagnosis. We reported olfactory receptor 51E1 (OR51E1) as a SI-NET-mRNA marker.

#675 Olfactory Receptor 51E1 is a Potential Novel Target for Diagnosis and Treatment of Somatostatin Receptor Negative Lung Carcinoid Patients
Introduction: Somatostatin receptor (SSTR) expression may be used for diagnosis and therapy of lung carcinoids. However, novel targets are requested.

#830 The Predictive Value of Gastrin Levels for the Diagnosis of Gastric Enterochromaffin-like Cells Hyperplasia, in Patients with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
Introduction: Gastrin and chromogranin A (CgA) levels have been tested for the diagnosis of enterochromaffin-like cell hyperplasia (ECLH), in patients with type 1 diabetes and autoimmune atrophic gastritis but there are no data for patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT).

#911 Immunohistochemical Expression of Connective Tissue Growth Factor and Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 in Lung Carcinoids
Introduction: Several studies have shown altered expression of Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) and its receptor (IGF-1R) in different types of cancers. Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) is triggered by Serotonin (5-HT) and Hypoxia Induced Factor 1 (HIF-1) and has been associated with tumor expansion and desmoplastic reaction in carcinoid tumors.

#1140 Incremental Benefit of Preoperative Endoscopic Ultrasound for the Detection of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Meta-Analysis
Introduction: Current guidelines recommend computed tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging as the initial imaging modalities for the work-up of suspected pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs).

#2269 Can Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1), IGF-1 Receptor, Connective Tissue Growth Factor and Ki-67 Labelling Index Have a Prognostic Role in Pulmonary Carcinoids?
Introduction: Altered expression of Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1), its receptor (IGF-1R), Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) and Hypoxia Factor-1 (HIF-1), has been implicated in tumorigenesis. These factors have not been studied systematically in Pulmonary Carcinoids (PCs).
