#2987 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT as Tool for Diagnosis and Decision-Making Process of Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Primary tumors in some patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET) cannot be found by conventional imaging as CT, MRI and scintigraphy. 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT (68Ga-PET) appears to have superior sensitivity, specifity, and better resolution than 99mTC-octreotide SPECT/TC (SSTR scintigraphy) and can improve decision-making process, however its cost is higher, and its availability is limited.

#2947 Al18F-NOTA-Octreotide PET Imaging of the Somatostatin Receptor: First Comparison with 68Ga-DOTATATE in Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients
Introduction: Practical and economic challenges limit the widespread use of 68Ga-labeled somatostatin analog (SSA) PET, the current standard for somatostatin receptor imaging. A promising 18F-labeled SSA, Al18F-NOTA-octreotide (Al18F-OC), has recently been introduced.

#2916 Pretherapeutic Heterogeneity of Somatostatin Receptor Expression in Neuroendocrine Neoplasia: An Innovative Predictor of Response to Everolimus?
Introduction: In patients with bronchopulmonary or gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) the mTOR inhibitor everolimus may prolong progression-free survival (PFS). However, this is countered by potentially significant toxicity.

#12 Chromogranin A as a predictor of progression, regression or stable disease in ileo-cecal (midgut) carcinoid tumors
Introduction: A general characteristic for NETs is their expression of certain proteins, such as chromogranin A (CgA), which is released from the dense core vesicles of NE cells, occasionally together with cell specific hormones, such as gastrin and serotonin. Plasma CgA seems to be closely related to tumor burden of intestinal carcinoid tumors in humans.

#114 Downstaging of a gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumor after combination therapy of temozolomide, Bevacizumab and long-acting somatostatin analogs
Introduction: Patients with gastroenteropancreatic endocrine (GEP) tumors and progressive disease have been treated with several chemotherapeutic regimens with variable responses and considerable toxicity. Recent studies have shown that GEP tumors may respond to therapy with anti-angiogenic agents, mainly as a result of their increased vascularity.

#118 Gastrointestinal motility in patients with neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Diarrhea is the most common symptom in patients with intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (NET). Somatostatin analogues reduce stool frequency and may increase gastrointestinal transit time (GITT). Motility tracking system® MTS-1 (MTS) (Motilis, Switzerland) is a novel, safe, almost non-invasive and easy-to-perform method for description of gastrointestinal motility.

#143 Association of somatostatin receptor 2 immunohistochemical expression with [111In]-DTPA octreotide scintigraphy and [68Ga]-DOTATOC PET/CT in neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: In the absence of preoperative somatostatin receptor (sst) scans, knowledge of immunohistochemical sst2 tumor expression may help in predicting the success of somatostatin analogue-based follow-up studies and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).

#153 Antibody formation against somatostatin analogues with altered biodistribution and dosimetry: a case with implications for PRRT
Introduction: Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) has emerged as a powerful palliative therapy. I.v. administration of radiolabeled (e.g. Yttrium-90) somatostatin analogues (SA) results in high-dose local irradiation of all tumor sites. The radiolabelled SA accumulates in the tumors through receptor-mediated internalization depending on the expression of somatostatin receptors and the pharmacokinetics of the radiolabelled SA.
