#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.

#2708 Patient Reported Symptoms, Coping and Quality of Life during Somatostatin Analogue Treatment for Metastatic Small-Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Patients with metastatic small-intestinal neuroendocrine tumours (NET) have been shown to have a reduced quality of life compared to the general population and many have disabling symptoms during somatostatin analogue (SSA) treatment.

#2805 Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumor Metastases: Comparison of Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography and 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT
Introduction: Most gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors (GI-NETs) involve the small intestine (38%) and about 50% of patients present with regional or distant metastases at time of diagnosis [2]. 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT provides improved sensitivity and specificity compared to traditional nuclear medicine techniques [4]. However, there is relatively less data comparing performance of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT with contrast-enhanced CT (CECT).

#2840 A Real-World Study of Patients with Carcinoid Syndrome at King’s College Hospital on Long-Term Telotristat Therapy
Introduction: Telotristat ethyl is a tryptophan hydroxylase inhibitor that has been shown to be effective against symptoms of carcinoid syndrome refractory to standard somatostatin analogue therapy by directly inhibiting serotonin production. While clinical trials have established short-term efficacy of the drug, we report an exploratory real-world study of 15 patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumours on long-term Telotristat (median duration=8 months).

#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.

#2999 Aberrant Tryptophan Metabolism in Stromal Cells Is Associated with Mesenteric Fibrosis in Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Increased levels of serotonin secretion are associated with mesenteric fibrosis (MF) in small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs). However, only a proportion of patients with increased serotonin production will develop mesenteric fibrosis.

#3027 Impact of Small Cell (SC) versus (vs.) Non-Small Cell (nSC) Morphology on Outcomes of Patients (pts) with Extra-Pulmonary, Poorly Differentiated Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (EP-PD-NEC)
Introduction: The 2018 SEER data indicates EP-PD-NEC morphology (SC vs. nSC) may impact patient outcomes.

#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.

#3058 Diagnosis and Assessment of Effectiveness of Surgical Resection of Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumours: The Roles of Circulating MicroRNAs
Introduction: MicroRNAs (miRNA) are small noncoding RNA molecules implicated in the pathophysiology of myriad neoplasms. Clinically useful biomarkers are needed in SB NET to ascertain disease aggressiveness, select treatment strategy, detect early recurrence and monitor response.
