#2823 Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy in Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) arising from the rectum are more common in the Asian population. Current treatment options include somatostatin analogues, chemotherapy, and more recently, peptide-receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT). Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) has been shown to be effective in the treatment of advanced gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) tumours with minimal adverse effects. Studies have also suggested that rectal NETs show good response to PRRT, better than GEP NETs.

#2963 Intrinsic Gene Programs in Metastasis-like Primary Subtype Is Associated with Early Metastatic Evolution in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Three molecular subtypes of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PanNETs) have been described: insulinoma-like, intermediate and metastasis-like primary (MLP). The Latter is a non-functional tumours with highly metastatic potential. A mouse model of PanNET showed that MLP subtype has two different pathways of progression including stem/progenitor and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition. However, the evolution of metastasis in patients requires further studies.

#3002 Quality of Life, Tumour Heterogeneity and Biomarker Levels in Patients with Progressive Pancreatic or Midgut Neuroendocrine Tumours: Baseline Data from CLARINET FORTE
Introduction: Lanreotide autogel (LAN) 120 mg every (q)28 days (standard regimen) improves progression-free survival vs placebo in patients with advanced, somatostatin receptor-positive (SSTR+) gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (NETs).

#2797 Assessment of Quality of Life in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours: Results of a Systematic Literature Review
Introduction: Health related quality of life (HRQoL) is increasingly important as a concept reflecting the patients’ perspective in conjunction with the disease presentation severity and treatment. Understanding the impact of treatment on neuroendocrine tumour (NET) patients’ HRQoL is paramount given the nature of the disease.

#2967 Longitudinal Changes in Plasma 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid (5-HIAA) and Other Biomarkers during Treatment of Functional Midgut Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) with Lanreotide Autogel: CALM NET Study Results
Introduction: CALM-NET (EudraCT 2013-002194-22; NCT02075606) evaluated pre-treatment circulating tumour cell levels in patients with NETs as a predictor of response to lanreotide autogel (LAN).

#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.

#2982 Comprehensive Molecular Analysis Identifies Driver Mutations in Metastases of Sporadic Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumours of the Small Intestine
Introduction: Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumours (SI-NETs) represent a heterogenous group of tumours. The molecular mechanisms which contribute to progression of SI-NETs are poorly elucidated. They are considered to be molecularly distinct from neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs), which share oncogenic pathways with adenocarcinomas.

#2727 Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours versus Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma: Presentation in Tunisian Patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are divided into two groups on the basis of clinical behaviour, histology, and proliferation rate: well differentiated (low grade to intermediate grade) neuroendocrine tumors and poorly differentiated (high grade) neuroendocrine carcinoma.

#3042 The Use of Total Parenteral Nutrition in a Series of Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours in United Kingdom and the Netherlands
Introduction: There are controversies about the use of total parental nutrition (TPN) in patients with cancer. Currently data regarding TPN use in patients with neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are lacking.

#2831 Immunohistochemical Profile of Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A Retrospective Analysis in a Single Algerian Institution
Introduction: Neuroendocrine Noplasms (NEN) are rare tumours, but their incidence is clearly increasing in our country due to the improvement of diagnostic means, in particular the generalization of immunohistochemical techniques. The digestive location represents more than 70% of the cases. The anatomopathological study enables to classify the NEN in different prognostic grades according to the degree of differentiation, mitotic index and Ki67.
