#929 Prognostic Role of Smoking in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NET)
Introduction: Large retrospective series identified several prognostic factors for GEP-NET such as sex, race, age, primary localization, stage or tumor grade. Several studies suggested a prognostic role of smoking in many cancer types. However, no data has been reported in GEP-NET.

#30 Diffuse Idiopathic Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Cell Hyperplasia
Introduction: Normal adult lungs contain scattered pulmonary neuroendocrine cells (PNEC). Reactive PNEC hyperplasia is commonly observed in persons who live at high altitude, in cigarette smokers, and in numerous lung diseases. Diffuse Idiopathic Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Cell Hyperplasia (DIPNECH) is a rare entity in which PNEC hyperplasia appears without predisposing conditions. According to the 1999 WHO lung tumor classification, DIPNECH is thought to be primarily a neuroendocrine proliferative process, which can be associated with carcinoid tumors and with a clinical picture of constrictive obliterative bronchiolitis. To date, available data regarding the treatment and the prognosis of this rare condition is limited.

#65 Deletions of 11q21-q25 are associated with atypical lung carcinoids and a poor clinical outcome
Introduction: Lung carcinoids comprise a group of smoking-unrelated neuroendocrine tumors, which can be classified in typical (TC) and atypical (AC) carcinoids. Classification is complex and its accuracy to predict disease outcome is variable. In a previous array comparative genomic hybridization (arrayCGH) study, we showed that the average number of chromosomal alterations (≥ 1Mb) was significantly higher in ACs than in TCs (512 v. 226 per tumor) and that the most common region of chromosome loss was 11q21-q25 (Neuroendocrinology 2009;90:136-137).

#256 Evaluation of the Association Between Serotonin and Bone Mineral Density in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures are influenced by diet, activity, drugs and hormones. Recent studies highlight an inverse relationship between serotonin and BMD.

#1318 MEN1 Associated Thymic Neuroendocrine Tumors in Oulu University Hospital Finland
Introduction: Thymic neuroendocrine tumors (TNET) are rare and account 2-5% of all thymic tumors. TNET can occur either sporadically or as a manifestation of an inherited tumor syndrome such as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1). The prognosis is severe.

#1663 Development of Neuroendocrine Tumors in Patients with a Family History of NET or Any Other Cancer
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors are rare. A very little knowledge is known about its risk factors. Studies have shown that NETs may develop as a part of hereditary syndromes.

#1668 Classification of Lung Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (Lung-NENs) According to WHO 2010 for Gastroenteropancreatic NENs (GEP-NENs) Has Prognostic Relevance and Includes Lung-NETs G3
Introduction: The classification of lung neuroendocrine neoplasms (Lung-NENs) according to the WHO classification 2010 for GEP-NENs, including a provisional category for Lung-NET G3 with Ki67 >20%, may have prognostic implications.
