#2277 Neuroendocrine Tumors Committee of Reference Hospital: Decision-Making Process on the Diagnostic and Therapeutic Approach to Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) require a multidisciplinary approach in expert centers due to their rarity, heterogeneity and the lack of evidence about optimal clinical management.

#2987 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT as Tool for Diagnosis and Decision-Making Process of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Primary tumors in some patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET) cannot be found by conventional imaging as CT, MRI and scintigraphy. 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT (68Ga-PET) appears to have superior sensitivity, specifity, and better resolution than 99mTC-octreotide SPECT/TC (SSTR scintigraphy) and can improve decision-making process, however its cost is higher, and its availability is limited.

#1682 Clinicohistopathological Features and Treatment Outcomes of Neuroendocrine Tumors; A Single Center Experience
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are very heterogeneous family of cancers.Tumor and patient characteristics of NETs significantly change between geographical locations that probably induced by environmental and genetic factors throughout the world. Therefore, reporting single center experience may help to clarify epidemiological view and to improve the decision-making process.

#1342 To Evaluate Patient’s Understand of the Neuroendocrine (NET) Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) Meeting Process at a ENETs Centre of Excellence
Introduction: Multidisciplinary teams serve to streamline the patient journey by developing individual treatment plans that are based on ‘best practice'. National and local guidelines govern the MDT process. There is little focus on the patient’s understanding and expectations of how and when the MDT recommendations are communicated.

#1366 CommNETS: Formation of an International Commonwealth Countries NET Partnership
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) care is challenging in Canada, Australia and New Zealand due to small populations in large geographical space, limited drug funding, and lack of NET awareness. There is a need for collaboration to focus research and improve care and outcomes for NET patients in these nations with similar health systems.

#179 A Variant Pancreatic Insulinoma in MEN1 Syndrome Characterized by Normoglycemia/Normoinsulinemia but Abnormal C-Peptide and Abnormal Proinsulin Levels
Introduction: Insulinoma associated w/ hyperinsulinemia is frequent in functioning pancreatic NET in MEN 1. We report on familial variant insulinoma w/ normoglycemia/norminsulinemia, but abnormal C-peptide and proinsulin.

#407 Co-existing Type-1 Gastric Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) and Adenocarcinoma in Autoimmune Associated Atrophic Gastritis
Introduction: Autoimmune gastritis (AIG) causes oxyntic gland atrophy. This condition is often associated with Type-1 gastric NET secondary to achlorhydria and hypergastrinemia. Similar to atrophic gastritis in non-autoimmune conditions, AIG is associated with intestinal metaplasia that could progress to glandular dysplasia.

#440 The First Neuroendocrine Tumor Methylome Using Methylation-Specific Immunoprecipitation Followed by Second Generation Sequencing – MeDIP-seq
Introduction: Recently, the first cancer methylomes have been created which identified differential methylation at CpG island-shores (2kb upstream of CpG islands) to be of particular importance in the tumourigenic process.
