#23 Developing a customized database for NET in a developing country
Introduction: The establishment of a neuroendocrine registry is extremely hard in developing countries. Many patients miss follow-up after surgical procedures and many die in different hospitals with a distinct national security health system number. As in any developing country, Brazil has a large movement of people to urban areas, making the tracking of former addresses impossible for patients who were treated some years prior. Therefore, it is more feasible to evaluate a demographic distribution of neuroendocrine tumors by topography or histological subtype, but the analysis of clinical events, such as progression-free survival, disease-free survival, time to progression or overall survival, is compromised.

#2706 A New Possibility in SI-NET Surgery by Using a New β- Probe and 90Y-DOTATOC: A Pilot Study
Introduction: In neuroendocrine tumor (NET), complete surgery could better the prognosis of this disease: radioguided surgery (RGS) with beta-radioisotopes, as 90Y, is a novel approach focused on developing a new probe which, detecting electrons and operating with low background, provides a clearer delineation of the margins of lesions with low radiation exposition for surgeons.

#2734 Therapy-Related Myeloid Neoplasms in Patients with Neuroendocrine Neoplasms after Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy: A Systematic Review
Introduction: Therapy-related myeloid neoplasm (t-MN) has been reported as a potential long-term and frequently lethal adverse event after PRRT in NET. However, the incidence, time of diagnosis, and nature of t-MN is unclear.

#2831 Immunohistochemical Profile of Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A Retrospective Analysis in a Single Algerian Institution
Introduction: Neuroendocrine Noplasms (NEN) are rare tumours, but their incidence is clearly increasing in our country due to the improvement of diagnostic means, in particular the generalization of immunohistochemical techniques. The digestive location represents more than 70% of the cases. The anatomopathological study enables to classify the NEN in different prognostic grades according to the degree of differentiation, mitotic index and Ki67.

#2955 Development of an EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire for Patients with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours: Phases 1-3
Introduction: Measuring quality of life (QoL) in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (pNET) involves assessing issues from symptoms, disease and treatment. The validated gastrointestinal NETs module (EORTC QLQ-GINET21) is used with EORTC QLQ-C30 but there are concerns it inadequately measures QoL in pNET.

#2960 Epidemiological Characteristics of Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Retrospective Analysis of a Single Centre
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a small heterogeneous group of cancers, developing from the neuroendocrine system. NETs may include functional or non-functional tumors; moreover, they may be familial and have further associated tumors.
