#2047 IMMUNeOCT Study: The Role of Octreotide LAR in Modulating the Immune Response in Patient with Neuroendocrine Tumors. EudraCT Number 2017-001613-83
Introduction: SSAs are used in the treatment of G1/G2 Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NEN) in order to control symptoms and induce tumor shrinkage with an excellent tolerability profile. The role of immune response is crucial in defining the clinical response to treatment through the active stimulation of effector cells (T and NK cells) but also through the inhibition of tumor-induced immune suppression. The immune regulatory cells CD4-CD25-expressing Tregs and myeloid cellsMDSC can contribute to disease progression through various mechanisms.

#2199 Systematic Evaluation of the Immune Microenvironment of Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET)
Introduction: Immunotherapy is being explored in many tumour types with encouraging results, but
its role in the management of NET is yet to be defined.

#2684 Tumour-Infiltrating Neutrophils Predict Poor Survival of Non-Functional Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumour Patients after Curative Resection
Introduction: Non-functional pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (NF-PanNETs) are steadily increasing in prevalence and present several clinical challenges.

#1645 A Role of TETs and 5-Hydroxymethylcytosine in SI-NETs
Introduction: Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) are rare and slow growing neoplasms. Identification of patients with worse outcome and of novel potential targets for therapy is important goals. The epigenetic mark 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) is severely reduced in various cancers and was recently found by us to discriminate between parathyroid adenoma and carcinoma. A growth regulatory role of TET1 was also found.

#1181 Significance of Ectopic Lymph Node-Like Structures in Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Small Bowel
Introduction: The formation of extranodal tertiary lymphoid follicles and lymphoid cell aggregates has been described in nonmalignant conditions including autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation as well as in cancer. Tumor-induced lymph node-like structures (LLS) participate in the host’s antitumor immune response by driving intratumoral immune cell priming

#621 Occurrence of Type 1 Gastric Carcinoid In Patients with Autoimmune Chronic Atrophic Gastritis
Introduction: The actual incidence of type1 gastric carcinoids (GC1) as a long-term complication of chronic autoimmune atrophic gastritis (CAAG) remains to be clarified as studies are few.

#427 Gastric Carcinoids: Prevalence in Europe and USA, and Rationale for Treatment with YF476, a Gastrin Receptor Antagonist
Introduction: Gastric carcinoids (GC) are tumors arising from enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells in the gastric mucosa. Most are caused by hypergastrinaemia, which stimulates ECL-cell growth. YF476 is a potent, selective and orally active gastrin receptor antagonist in humans in vitro and in vivo. YF476 prevented and caused shrinkage of GC in animal models of the condition.

#2692 Development of Ex-Vivo Models of Metastatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: The lack of relevant in-vivo and in-vitro models has precluded investigations of the pathophysiology of metastatic NENs. Organotypic tumour slices retain the complexity of tumours in-vivo without extensive manipulation of the tissue.
