#741 Lanreotide Activity and Synergy in Combination with Targeted Agents in Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors (GI-NET): Ex Vivo Analysis of Programmed Cell Death (EVA/PCD) in GI-NETs Isolated from Patients with Advanced Disease
Introduction: Somatostatin receptor ligation can affect vascular signals, induce apoptosis and provide objective responses in some GI-NET patients.

#1404 The Proteasome Inhibitor Bortezomib Is a Highly Effective Treatment Option for Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms and Sensitizes to DNA Damaging Therapy In Vitro
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms are fairly rare tumors with very heterogeneous behavior and molecular characteristics. Their generally slow proliferation render them virtually resistant to many DNA damaging therapeutic approaches. Bortezomib has been shown to be effective in GEP-NENs in vitro but has been withdrawn from clinical assessment due to a small phase II study on bortezomib monotherapy in 2004.

#280 Sorafenib and Bevacizumab Combination Targeted Therapy in Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumor: A Phase II Study of the Spanish Neuroendocrine Tumor Group (GETNE0801)
Introduction: Sorafenib (S) and bevacizumab (B) as single agents have shown efficacy and acceptable toxicity in NETs phase II trials. S+B combination has shown manageable toxicity in phase I trials in solid tumors.

#597 Primary Hepatic Neuroendocrine Carcinomas Treated with a Combination of Cisplatin and Etoposide as First-Line Chemotherapy: Two Case Reports
Introduction: Because primary hepatic neuroendocrine carcinoma (PHNEC) is extremely rare, a standard regimen has not yet been established. However, the combination of etoposide and cisplatin (EP) has been widely used to treat PHNEC.

#1166 mTOR Pathway Inhibition Sensitizes Insulinoma Cells to Streptozotocin Induced Apoptosis
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) are generally chemoresistants probably due to low proliferation rate and defects in apoptotic pathway. Targeted therapies are new encouraging options for pNETs however; clinical trials show limited objective response. Combination of chemotherapy and targeted therapy could be a new solution in therapeutic care. Streptozotocin (STZ) is the 1st line of therapy for unresectable pNETs.

#1670 A Successful Case of Controlling the Multiple Distant Metastasis of Pancreatic G2 NET with Local Therapy Combined with Systemic Pharmacotherapy
Introduction: Several systemic pharmacotherapies could be applied to multiple metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PNET). However, we have not determined how to coordinate ‘local’ therapy such as salvage surgery and transarterial chemoembolization with systemic pharmacotherapies for these multiple metastatic PNET.

#2094 Disease Control in Progressive Pancreatic and Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors by Combined Treatment with Lanreotide Autogel and Temozolomide: The SONNET Study
Introduction: In advanced NETs antiproliferative treatment options beyond somatostatin analogues remain limited. Temozolomide (TMZ) has shown efficacy in NETs alone or combined with other drugs.

#38 Expression of mTOR signaling pathway and effects of mTOR inhibitors on its pathway in human neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET), especially well-differentiated endocrine tumors, are often slow-growing, indolent, and may not become clinically apparent until the manifestations of metastatic spread or carcinoid syndrome. Results of previous studies demonstrated that phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway may be activated in the great majority of NET cells. mTOR inhibitors are therefore considered effective anti-tumor reagents but they may also induce an activation of PI3K/Akt and MAPK pathways as a compensatory action and reduce their own anti-tumor activities.
