#109 Transarterial chemoebolization (TACE) of liver metastases derived from neuroendocrine tumors is an effective treatment only in patients with low or mediate hepatic tumor burden
Introduction: The onset of metastases in patients with neuroendocrine tumors of the gastrointestinal tract (GEP-NET) represents a negative predictor of survival and tumor-associated complications. Thereby, most of these patients develop liver metastases during their disease. Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) has been shown before to be an effective and safe treatment of liver metastases. However, the optimal time point in treatment of liver metastases has not yet been determined, especially in patients with non-functional GEP-NET.

#88 EpCam expression and detection of circulating tumor cells in neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Using the CellSearchTM system, circulating tumor cells (CTCs) can be reproducibly enumerated according to expression of EpCAM and cytokeratins 8, 18 or 19 and the absence of the haemopoietic marker CD45. The number of CTCs detected in 7.5 mls blood has been shown to correlate with prognosis in breast, colon and prostate cancer and can predict response to therapy. Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) have not previously been reported to express EpCAM and have not been systematically assessed for presence of CTCs. We have therefore explored the expression of EpCAM in NETs and the detection of NET cells in the circulation.

#1857 Association between Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Biomarkers and Tumor Burden Based on Total 68Ga-DOTATATE-Avid Tumor Volume (TV) Measurements
Introduction: No study has yet assessed the utility of biochemical biomarkers for evaluating NET burden using 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT.

#12 Chromogranin A as a predictor of progression, regression or stable disease in ileo-cecal (midgut) carcinoid tumors
Introduction: A general characteristic for NETs is their expression of certain proteins, such as chromogranin A (CgA), which is released from the dense core vesicles of NE cells, occasionally together with cell specific hormones, such as gastrin and serotonin. Plasma CgA seems to be closely related to tumor burden of intestinal carcinoid tumors in humans.

#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.

#809 Serum Chromogranin A is a Predictor for Liver Metastatic Tumor Burden and Therapeutic Response in Advanced Non-Functional Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: The relationship between CgA level and liver metastatic (LM) tumor burden as well as therapeutic response is not well-established.

#1231 Neuroendocrine Tumor (NET) Patient (pt) Experience and Disease Burden: Results from the First Global NET Pt Survey - A Collaboration Between the International Neuroendocrine Cancer Alliance (INCA) and Novartis Pharmaceuticals
Introduction: Global data on impact of NETs on pts’ lives, including differences by disease location, are poorly described. We present global data on pt experience and disease burden by NET type.

#1276 Caregivers’ Burden of Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumor and Related Factors
Introduction: Rare and increasing rapidly,patients with NETs have got more and more attention.With so many unknown and the long course of the disease, the caregaviers should bear a long and huge burden.However, the relative reviews are rare.

#259 Risk of Cardiovascular Events (CV) in Patients Newly Diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET)
Introduction: NETs are malignant neoplasms capable of systemic hormone production. Oversecretion of hormones can result in many different symptoms, including CV events such as CAD, valvular disease and stroke.
