#2024 Metachronous Primary Cancers in Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients
Introduction: Historically there has been an association between neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) and second primary cancers (Stronge et al 2014). However, this has not been well characterised.

#69 Frequent biological association of Merkel cell polyomavirus with Merkel cell carcinomas
Introduction: Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCPyV) DNA has been detected by PCR in 75–100% of Merkel cell carcinomas (MCC), an aggressive neuroendocrine skin cancer. MCPyV is a 5.4 kb DNA virus that expresses tumor (T) antigen in tumor tissues.

#2005 Incidence and Prevalence of Neuroendocrine Tumors in England
Introduction: Historically the incidence and prevalence of neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) has been difficult to establish. Studies by Ellis et al in 2006 estimated the incidence of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP NETs) to be 1.3 per 100,000 per year (incidence hereafter given as cases per 100,000). However, the SEER USA data suggests a four-fold higher incidence, and prevalence of 35 per 100,000.

#2108 Molecular Characterization of Primary and Metastatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PNETs) are a heterogeneous group of rare pancreatic neoplasms often diagnosed with distant metastases, which are associated with significantly poorer prognosis. Recurrent somatic mutations, chromosomal aberrations and gene expression signatures in PNETs have been described, but the clinical significance of these molecular changes is still poorly understood, and the clinical outcomes of PNET patients remain highly variable.

#79 PTOV-1 overexpression in neuroendocrine tumors: a new molecular marker
Introduction: PTOV-1 (Prostate Tumor Overexpressed-1) is a novel protein encoded by 12-exon gene localized in chromosome 19q.13.3. Recently identified as an androgen-induced gene, it is involved in prostate cell proliferation and in prostate human cancer. PTOV-1 expression has been demonstrated in neuroendocrine cells of normal prostate tissue. Preliminary data indicate that PTOV-1 can be related to flotilin, integrins and other cellular factors involved in cancer progression.

#537 Survival of Patients with Neuroendocrine Cancers in Ontario Over the Last 15 Years
Introduction: There has been an increased incidence of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) in Ontario, Canada, over the last 15 years but little is known about trends in survival.

#539 Patterns of Care of Neuroendocrine Cancer in Ontario: Health Services Delivery
Introduction: Delayed diagnosis and treatment of NETs may result in increased health care utilization, medical costs and patient distress. Patients may be treated by different specialists and modalities.

#2251 Neuroendocrine Testicular Tumour. An Unusual Issue.
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours can arise from neuroendocrine cells throughout the body. Location on testis is rare, accounting less than 1% of all testicular malignancies.
