#3053 The Splicing Machinery Is Dysregulated in Low Grade Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Alternative splicing dysregulation is increasingly regarded as a novel cancer hallmark influencing all key tumor features. We have shown that neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) overexpress aberrantly spliced variants of neuropeptides and receptors that increase tumor malignancy. More recently, we discovered that the splicing machinery is dysregulated in pituitary and pancreatic NETs. To date, the status of this machinery in low grade pulmonary NETs is largely unknown.

#296 Tumor Size Correlates With Malignancy in Non-Functioning Pancreatic Endocrine Tumor
Introduction: Tumor size is a criterion of staging in non-functioning pancreatic endocrine tumors (NF-PET), as well as a predictor of outcome after curative resection.

#1155 Evaluation of Features and Predictors for Long Term Hematologic Toxicity in Neuroendocrine Patients Treated with Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy
Introduction: Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) for neuroendocrine tumors (NET) may offer partial or complete objective response in up to 30% of patients. To deliver treatment in a safe and effective manner, long term adverse events should be considered.

#1209 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Incidentalomas: When is Surgery in the Patient’s Best Interests?
Introduction: Small PNETs, many of which are diagnosed incidentally, pose a management dilemma. Whilst resection offers curative outcomes, the risks of surgery have led many to adopt surveillance strategies. 2cm is often used as a threshold for malignancy, but reports suggest that this value may not be valid.

#2770 Evaluation of Early Predictors of Metabolic Syndrome in Patients with Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NET)
Introduction: Metabolic syndrome and obesity (MetS) are supposed to have a role in cancer but data analysing their association with GEP-NET are lacking.

#2961 Our Experience Using a New Scoring System to Detect Disease Recurrence after Curative Surgical Resection of Well-Differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: For patients with nonfunctioning pNET  ≥20 mm in size without distant metastasis, complete surgical resection is recommended as the primary curative strategy. Effective follow‐up programs are designed to detect recurrence at an early stage, given that treatment of limited disease has the most favorable outcome. However, data on post‐curative surgical recurrence remains limited, making it challenging to determine the best follow‐up strategy and to detect the best treatment options as an adjuvant therapy for selected patients.
