#510 Salivary-Free Catecholamines Metabolites in Pheochromocytoma
Introduction: Salivary monitoring of hormone levels have many advantages over the more conventional serum/plasma analysis. Salivary-free metanephrines (MN) and normetanephrines (NMN) could improve biochemical diagnosis of pheochromocytoma (PHEO) as an alternative to plasma metabolites.

#64 Sustained response to anti IGFR-1R monoclonal antibody combined with docetaxel in a patient with metastatic adrenocortical carcinoma
Introduction: Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare neoplasm with poor prognosis. Treatment results in advanced disease are disappointing and median survival is less than 12 months. There is no standard chemotherapy, even though mitotane and cisplatin-based regimens are frequently used with limited efficacy. In vitro data suggest that overexpressed insulin growth factor-2 (IGF-2) acting via the IGF-1 receptor (IGF-1R) is relevant for ACC and that the IGF-1R and 2R pathway is a promising target.

#124 Management and outcomes of malignant paragangliomas and phaeochromocytomas
Introduction: Chromaffin-cell tumors include phaeochromocytomas and paragangliomas, represent a rare group of neuroendocrine tumors and are located in adrenal medulla or extra-adrenal sites, respectively. Ten percent of phaeochromocytomas and 15-35% of paragangliomas are malignant.

#177 Dissociation Between Iodine-131 meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) Scintigraphy and Radiolabeled Octreotide in the Localization and Management of Sporadic Malignant Pheochromocytoma: An Impact on Management
Introduction: The Rx of malignant pheochromocytomas w/negative MIBG scan remains a challanging problem. Octreoscan is helpful in localization and Rx planning in such cases. Rx using SST analog & PRRT is a desirable goal.
