#1377 Metastatic Neuro Endocrine Tumors: Epidemiological Characteristics, Management and Prognostics Factors. Results from an Inter-Regional Network in France between Upper and Lower Normandy
Introduction: Metastatic neuro-endocrine tumors (MNETs) are rare and their management are complex. To standardize therapeutic strategies in France, a national network of clinicians (RENATEN) has been created, composed of 17 expert centres.

#62 Genome-wide DNA methylation profiling of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors identifies distinct methylation profiles and differentially methylated gene promoter regions associated with low, medium and high grade tumors
Introduction: Integration of genetics and epigenetics has emerged as a powerful approach to studying cellular differentiation (Mikkelsen et al, 2009) and tumorigenesis (Shen et al, 2007). The study of DNA methylation is of particular importance in cancer, as causal involvement has been demonstrated and it is the most stable of all epigenetic modifications, making it a desirable marker for both early detection and treatment of tumors. Hypermethylation of CpG sites in gene promoter regions leads to decreased gene expression; if such a gene is a tumor suppressor, this leads to carcinogenesis. To date, there have been no studies of genome-wide DNA methylation profiling of NETs. This study sets out to determine the DNA methylation profiles of low, intermediate and high grade pancreatic NET liver metastases with the intention of identifying dysregulated biological pathways in the development of these tumors. A protocol for the analysis formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue (FFPE) has also been developed in order to study these tumors in significant numbers following this pilot study.

#793 Experience of a Single Italian Center with NET Patients
Introduction: The management of neuroendocrine tumors involves a multidisciplinary approach, so in 2004 the Endocrinology and Metabolic Unit developed a local/regional network to manage NET patients and to increase physician awareness of the disease.

#318 The SEER as a Prophet: Epidemiological Analysis as a Harbinger of Evolving Priorities in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasia
Introduction: Previous epidemiology analysis of tumor registries established that gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (GEP-NETs) were both more prevalent, and more malignant, than previously recognized.

#1594 The Epidemiological Study of Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A Single-Center Retrospective Analysis of 710 Patients in China
Introduction: China hasn’t established a national database of NENs yet, thus, this epidemiological report is based on a single-center retrospective analysis.

#600 Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Epidemiological Trends in Queensland, Australia
Introduction: Various studies pertaining to neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) have revealed trends in incidence and mortality over time, and regional variations. The WHO 2010 classification has attempted to more accurately reflect the differing prognoses of this heterogeneous patient population by defining various patient subsets.
