#20 Paraneoplastic antigen Ma2 (PNMA2) auto-antibodies as biomarkers for early small intestine neuroendocrine tumors detection
Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) comprise well-differentiated NET (benign carcinoid), well-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma (malignant carcinoid) and poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC). The majority of NET patients have developed liver metastases at the time of diagnosis and surgery is then seldom curative. Novel predictive, diagnostic and prognostic markers are thus needed to improve our capabilities to diagnose and cure these tumors. We have previously identified six novel marker genes for neuroendocrine tumor cells by using Affymetrix microarrays and advanced bioinformatics. One of this markers, the paraneoplastic antigen Ma2 (PNMA2), which is normally expressed only in nervous tissue, can in the process of carcinogenesis be detected in tumors located outside the nervous system. The finding that Ma2 is expressed in small intestine neuroendocrine primary tumors and their metastases made it interesting to screen whether antibodies against Ma2 are present in the serum of NET patients.

#118 Gastrointestinal motility in patients with neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Diarrhea is the most common symptom in patients with intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (NET). Somatostatin analogues reduce stool frequency and may increase gastrointestinal transit time (GITT). Motility tracking system® MTS-1 (MTS) (Motilis, Switzerland) is a novel, safe, almost non-invasive and easy-to-perform method for description of gastrointestinal motility.

#174 Loss of Expression of the DNA Mismatch Repair Proteins MLH1 and MSH2 is Rare in Pancreatic and Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Loss of expression of the DNA mismatch repair (MMR) proteins MLH1 and MSH2, which is known to correlate strongly with MSI, has not been well studied in pancreatic or small intestinal NETs.

#1746 Clinical Outcomes in Small Neuroendocrine Tumours Treated with Intestinal Surgery in Tertiary Centre
Introduction: Patients with Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumours (SBNET) may require small bowel surgery either as an emergency or electively.Robust data from Tertiary Referral Centres (TRC) are lacking.

#349 Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) Of The Esophagus In A Patient With MEN-1 And-Related Pancreatic Gastrinoma
Introduction: Both Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1 (MEN-1; OMIM #613733)-related-gastrinomas and Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GISTs; OMIM #606764) are rare neoplasms and their association has been rarely reported so far.

#1323 Expression of Oncofetal Protein IMP3 in Lymph Node Metastases of Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A New Predictor of Recurrence
Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine neoplasm (SINENs) are heterogeneous neoplasms arising from endocrine cells of the intestinal mucosa. Ki67 is the main determinant of prognosis in NENs. However, the research for new prognostic makers represent a key-point. The oncofetal protein IMP3 plays a role in cell growth and its expression has a prognostic value in lung neoplasms.

#2025 Health-Related Quality of Life Determinants in Swedish Patients after Surgery for Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Overall survival for patients with small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (siNETs) is often long even with metastatic disease, making quality of life issues especially relevant. The impact of surgery on their quality of life is unknown.
