#12 Chromogranin A as a predictor of progression, regression or stable disease in ileo-cecal (midgut) carcinoid tumors
Introduction: A general characteristic for NETs is their expression of certain proteins, such as chromogranin A (CgA), which is released from the dense core vesicles of NE cells, occasionally together with cell specific hormones, such as gastrin and serotonin. Plasma CgA seems to be closely related to tumor burden of intestinal carcinoid tumors in humans.

#231 Chromogranin A as a Predictor of Progression, Regression or Stable Disease in Ileo-Cecal Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Chromogranin A is an excellent marker for NET and tumor volume. Plasma CgA is suggested as the most reliable marker in follow-up of patients with some types of NET.

#601 Chromogranin A is a Sensitive Marker of Progression or Regression
Introduction: One of the most common is gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) NET of the pancreas, which constitute about 30% of all GEP NET. CgA is an excellent marker for NET and tumor volume and plasma CgA is suggested as the most reliable marker in follow-up of GEP but only few studies have been published.

#2066 Pretherapeutic Predictors of Tumor Absorbed Dosimetry in Radionuclide Therapy for Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Pretherapeutic 68Gallium-DOTA-(0-Tyr3)-octreotate Positron Emission Tomography (68Ga-DOTATATE PET) standardised uptake value (SUV) has shown conflicting results in the prediction of tumour lesion absorbed dosimetry (TLAD).

#55 Metronomic combination therapy including temozolamide, bevacizumab and somatostatin analogue for the treatment of malignant gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Malignant gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEPNETS), mainly carcinoids, are not considered to be particularly chemotherapy-sensitive to conventional chemotherapeutic schemes. Long-standing evidence suggests these tumors to be highly vascularised and responsive to antiangiogenic strategies. Newest reports demonstrate benefit by the use of temozolamide, an oral alkylating agent similar to intravenous dacarbazine. The DNA repair enzyme O6-alkylguanine–DNA alkyltransferase (AGAT) confers cancer cell resistance to O6-alkylating agents such as temozolamide through its ability to remove methyl/alkyl groups from the O6-position of guanine, thus correcting drug-induced DNA damage.

#59 Incidence and clinical significance of adrenal masses in patients with gastrenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: The widespread application of modern imaging modalities, mainly computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), has revealed a 2-3% incidence of inadvertently discovered adrenal masses, the majority of which are non-functioning benign adrenal adenomas. In the presence of a known malignancy, such lesions have a more than 30% incidence of being metastases. As patients with gastrenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETS) have mainly well-differentiated and slow-growing tumors and are subject to routine abdominal imaging for disease staging or during follow-up, it is important to study the incidence and significance of such lesions based on the recently introduced TNM classification system.

#114 Downstaging of a gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumor after combination therapy of temozolomide, Bevacizumab and long-acting somatostatin analogs
Introduction: Patients with gastroenteropancreatic endocrine (GEP) tumors and progressive disease have been treated with several chemotherapeutic regimens with variable responses and considerable toxicity. Recent studies have shown that GEP tumors may respond to therapy with anti-angiogenic agents, mainly as a result of their increased vascularity.

#472 Detection of Liver Metastases and Prognostic Value of Functional and Anatomical Imaging in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Liver metastases (LM) are frequent in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and are associated with decreased overall survival (OS). Several treatment options are available depending on degree, localization, size and number of LM. For optimal choice of treatment and correct staging, accurate imaging modalities are crucial.
