#992 Phase 1 and Phase 2 Clinical Trials Investigating Targets Against the Molecular Hallmarks of Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Recently there have been many advances in the diagnosis and treatment of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP NETs), accompanied by significant improvements in our understanding of GEP NET biology. A number of well-established or novel molecular hallmarks are involved in GEP NET tumorigenesis and may help in identifying potential diagnostic or therapeutic targets.

#300 Association Between Time to Disease Progression Endpoints and Overall Survival in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: While the association between time to disease progression (TDP) and overall survival (OS) has been examined in a variety of cancers, it has not been assessed in trials of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).

#1449 Promoting High Quality Care in Clinical Trials for Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: The European Institute of Oncology is an ENETS Center of Excellence. Many patients (pts) are treated in clinical trials. The clinical research nurse (CRN) is a key figure in care delivery. Optimising staff resources means some trial activities are delivered by nursing staff with limited research experience. To provide high quality care & accurate trial results, all nursing staff caring for NET pts should have appropriate trial related support and training.

#151 Rationale for combining mTOR with other targeted agents in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Advanced neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are aggressive and incurable with standard treatment. Many cellular targets are being evaluated in this patient population, including mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a kinase that is the central regulator of several signaling pathways related to cell growth, angiogenesis, and bioenergetics. Because mTOR serves as a neoplastic switch activated by many cancer-related mutations, mTOR inhibition may have broad efficacy across tumor types, including NETs. Somatostatin analogs (SSAs) have long been used to treat carcinoid symptoms in NET patients. The SSA octreotide long-acting release (LAR) demonstrated significant antitumor effects against advanced midgut NETs in the phase III PROMID study.

#121 Serotonin synthesis inhibitors: a novel approach for managing gastrointestinal symptoms in carcinoid syndrome
Introduction: Carcinoid syndrome (CS) occurs when metastatic carcinoid tumors secrete large amounts of serotonin (5-HT) and other bioactive substances into systemic circulation, causing a variety of symptoms, including GI symptoms such as profound diarrhea. Reduction in 5-HT production by the tumor would be expected to improve symptoms in patients with CS.

#2075 Phase 1 Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Study of APOC, a New Controlled Release Formulation (CRF) of 15mg Octreotide Acetate in Healthy Male Volunteers
Introduction: Somatostatin analogues (SSAs) are considered the gold standard for systemic therapy of advanced neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Octreotide is one of the SSAs most widely used in long-term therapies of NETs. There is increasing evidence that clinical benefits could be obtained with higher SSAs circulating levels but remain unreachable with current products without impacting significantly the quality of life of the patients. APOC is a new injectable controlled release technology containing Octreotide invented and developed by Ascil-Biopharm and designed to cover specifically these clinical unmet needs. It is presented as ready-to-use and can easily be manufactured at selected doses and durations in prefilled syringe.

#1763 REMINET: A European, Multicenter, Phase II/III Randomized Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study Evaluating Lanreotide As Maintenance Therapy after First-Line Treatment in Patients with Non-Resectable Duodeno-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Patients (pts) with metastatic or locally advanced, non-resectable, grade 1 or 2 Well-differentiated duodeno-pancreatic (WDDP) NETs are treated following European guidelines. Pts with aggressive disease, i.e. progressive and/or symptomatic metastases and/or with significant hepatic invasion (> 30-50%), and/or bone metastases, anti-tumour therapy should receive systemic combination of chemotherapy once disease control is obtained.

#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.
