#2100 OPERA: Observational Study of Perception of Information and Quality of Life in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors Starting Lanreotide – Study Design
Introduction: Information provided to patients about burden and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) may ease treatment adherence, outpatient monitoring, and improve quality of life (QoL), but can also cause anxiety. Data on how to individually adapt materials are insufficient and mainly derived from clinical trials.

#1767 International Patient Survey of Physical, Emotional and Informational Challenges when Living with NETs: Understanding the Unmet Needs
Introduction: The usefulness of information sources used by NET patients is rarely explored by patient surveys of disease burden/impact on daily living, and may be key to optimizing care.

#39 Specialist dietetic input and nutritional outcomes in Neuroendocrine Tumour Patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of tumors that are complex to manage and require a multidisciplinary approach. The most common primary sites are the small intestine and pancreas. The disease itself, as well as sequelae from surgery and medical therapy, can have a negative impact on patients’ nutritional status. Weight loss is known to be a poor prognostic indicator.

#419 Morphological Characteristics of Pancreatic Tumors in Children and Young Patients
Introduction: Pancreatic tumors (PT) usually occur after age 60 and almost never in children and young patients (pts). Little is known concerning frequency, morphological and immunohistochemical (IHC) characteristics of PTs in children and young pts.

#1407 Nutritional Status and Nutritional Risk in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Malnutrition is common in patients with cancer and is associated with impaired function. No data are available on nutritional status (NS) and nutritional risk (NR) in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET).

#28 Prognostic Clinicopathologic Factors in Longitudinally Followed Patients with Metastatic Small Bowel Carcinoid
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors demonstrate heterogeneous behavior based upon site of origin and specific histology. Even after controlling for anatomic location, disease stage and histologic grade, registry studies show persistent diversity of outcome in patients with midgut carcinoid.

#29 Serum chromogranin A correlation with tumor burden in metastatic small bowel carcinoid patients
Introduction: Patients with neuroendocrine tumors may have clinical courses that range from fairly indolent to more aggressive. Cross–sectional studies, nuclear imaging and biochemical markers are often used to monitor disease progression. Optimal surveillance tests and intervals have not been firmly established. Studies suggest that chromogranin A (CgA) may be a surrogate marker for tumor burden.
