#744 Bio-Differentiating and Antiangiogenic Therapy with Gastroenteropancreatic Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NETs)
Introduction: The outcome of patients with metastatic, progressive or recurrent neuroendocrine tumors remains poor despite the several novel therapeutic approaches.

#161 Low Dose Multiple Cycle (LD/MT) Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy: a new concept for the treatment of well-differentiated metastatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: It has been shown experimentally that low dose radiation can effectively kill slow growing cancer cells. Also, external beam radiation therapy applies a fractionated delivery of radiation dose to reduce toxicity with equal or even better therapeutic efficacy.

#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.

#2964 Personalized Therapy in a Case of Esophageal NEC Based on Tumor Genome Sequencing
Introduction: High-grade esophageal neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) constitute a rare subgroup of neuroendocrine neoplasms, with a particularly aggressive behaviour and unfavourable prognosis. To date, there are no validated biomarkers for personalized therapy and cytotoxic chemotherapy remains the standard of care. However, tumor genome sequencing may help improve NEC molecular landscape knowledge in order to identify novel targets for an individualized approach.

#3029 Adrenocortical Carcinoma Metastasic in Adult on Complete Response with EDP-M and Local Therapy: A Single Case Report
Introduction: Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) in adults is a rare tumor (incidence 0.7-2/1000000/year). Median overall survival is 3-4 years and five-year survival is 0-28% in metastatic disease. The only curative therapy is complete surgical resection, plus adjuvant therapy depending on poor prognostic factors (ENSAT stage III, R1 resection or Ki67>10%). Both recurrent oligometastatic disease and patients who respond to systemic treatment (ST), a radical approach with surgery or local therapy (LT) may be treatment options.

#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.

#290 Peptide Receptor Radiotherapy as a Potential Tool of Neoadjuvant Therapy in Patients with Inoperable Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: Neoadjuvant treatment is used as pre-surgical therapy in different cancers to decrease tumor size. PRRT can be a useful tool in neoadjuvant treatment of patients with well-differentiated NETs.

#2716 Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Upper Urinary Tract: A Case Report
Introduction: There are no dedicated guidelines for treatment of urothelial NEC given disease rarity. An aggressive approach, including neoadjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy + nephroureterectomy and adjuvant platinum-based chemotherapy, is recommended.

#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.

#2875 Immunotherapy as Second-line Treatment in Grade 3 Neuroendocrine Carcinomas: A Prospective Case Series from an ENETS Center of Excellence
Introduction: Metastatic WHO grade 3 extra-pulmonary neuroendocrine carcinomas (EP-NEC) have a poor prognosis and optimal treatment after first-line platinum-etoposide chemotherapy remains unclear. A recent, small phase II study combining ipilimumab and nivolumab showed promising results
