#121 Serotonin synthesis inhibitors: a novel approach for managing gastrointestinal symptoms in carcinoid syndrome
Introduction: Carcinoid syndrome (CS) occurs when metastatic carcinoid tumors secrete large amounts of serotonin (5-HT) and other bioactive substances into systemic circulation, causing a variety of symptoms, including GI symptoms such as profound diarrhea. Reduction in 5-HT production by the tumor would be expected to improve symptoms in patients with CS.

#2097 Oral Ondansetron Offers Effective Symptomatic Bridging for Carcinoid Syndrome Refractory to Somatostatin Analogues
Introduction: Somatostatin analogues (SSA) are standard for symptomatic patients with neuroendocrine tumours (NETs). However, most patients experience tachyphylaxis, and limited options exist for this refractory carcinoid syndrome (RCS). Recently, ondansetron has been associated with reduction of bowel movement in a small series.
