#238 Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRNT) in Patients with Metastasized Neuroendocrine Tumor Having Single or Non-functional Kidney - Is it Safe?
Introduction: Nephrotoxicity is one of the primary concerns in PRRNT of metastasized neuroendocrine tumors (NET).

#86 Structure of complications in acromegalic patients at a single institute
Introduction: Acromegaly leads to reduced life expectancy, with an increase in the mortality rate. From several retrospective cohort studies, the predominant outcome is serum growth hormone (GH) concentration. Other factors associated with increased mortality include duration of symptoms prior to diagnosis, duration of disease, older age at diagnosis and the presence of cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus (DM) and hypertension at diagnosis.

#22 A Case Illustrative of Phenotypic Heterogeneity and Challenges in the Management of Paraganglioma
Introduction: Paragangliomas (PGLs) are extra-adrenal, usually benign, highly vascularized tumors that originate from neural-crest-derived chromaffin cells. These tumors are subdivided as either sympathetic or parasympathetic, depending on their location and catecholamine production. Sympathetic PGLs are situated along the abdominal sympathetic trunk and usually produce catecholamines, whereas parasympathetic PGLs are located in the head and neck, and these usually do not produce catecholamines. PGLs may present as sporadic or inherited tumor syndrome, including MEN 2, with RET germline mutations, von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease due to germline mutations in VHL gene, and pheochromocytoma-PGL syndrome. The latter is frequently a hereditary condition and is caused by germline mutations in the SDHB, SDHC, or SDHC genes. Patients with familial PGLs may present at a younger age, often as multifocal tumors, with an increased risk of recurrence and a higher frequency of malignancy in those with SDHB mutations. SDH mutations induce angiogenesis and tumorogenesis through the inhibition of hypoxia-inducible factors (HIF)-propyl hyroxylase. A younger age at onset, malignancy, and a positive family history are clinical parameters of high specificity, but low sensitivity for diagnosis. Genetic analysis for mutations in SDH genes for the patient and family members, and surveillance for the affected patient and family members, are necessary where there are no clear clinical or family indicators for the syndrome. We present a case of a large abdominal malignant PGL in a 20-year-old pt. that went on without clinical detection for at least three years.

#255 The Carcinoid Syndrome Caused by Retroperitoneal Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: The carcinoid syndrome is caused by increased levels of serotonin and is mostly seen in cases of carcinoid tumor in the small bowel and liver metastases, as there is a very high first pass effect.

#1098 177Lu Dotatate vs Sequential 177Lu Dotatate and 90Y Dotatate: Treatment Outcomes for PRRT Patients at the Christie - A Clinical Audit
Introduction: The traditional treatment regime of somatostatin receptor positive NETs by molecular radiotherapy was based on single radionuclides (e.g. 90Y Dotatate or 177Lu Dotatate), delivered as multiple cycles to allow normal tissue recovery. However a newer practice of alternating tcycles of 177Lu and Y90 Dotatate was implemented at the Christie following introduction of this regime in some European centres. Subsequent follow up studies have indicated that longer overall survival and reduced loss of kidney function is found in patient cohorts treated with combined 177Lu and 90Y regimes to either 177Lu or 90Y alone.

#1682 Clinicohistopathological Features and Treatment Outcomes of Neuroendocrine Tumors; A Single Center Experience
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are very heterogeneous family of cancers.Tumor and patient characteristics of NETs significantly change between geographical locations that probably induced by environmental and genetic factors throughout the world. Therefore, reporting single center experience may help to clarify epidemiological view and to improve the decision-making process.

#1388 Nephrotoxicity after PRRT with 177Lu-DOTA-Octreotate
Introduction: Renal toxicity may occur after Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT). Risk factors have been identified for renal toxicity after 90Y based PRRT.

#1787 Towards Personalizing PRRT with [177Lu]-Dotatate to Minimise Renal Toxicity in Neuroendocrine Tumour Patients
Introduction: The kidney is a dose-limiting organ in [177Lu]-Dotatate PRRT (Lutate) and thus renal function is an important prescribing consideration for NET patients. The effect of baseline renal function on kidney absorbed dose is unclear.

#1887 Neuroendocrine Neoplasm Registry: Single-Centre Experience and Outcomes
