#1606 Tumor Growth Rate to Assess Tumor Activity in Patients with Lung Neuroendocrine Tumors on Lanreotide Autogel: A Case-Series Analysis
Introduction: The slow-growing character of neuroendocrine tumors (NET) makes it difficult to assess treatment impact on tumor growth.

#2053 Value of Tumor Growth Rate (TGR) as an Early Predictor of Patients’ Outcome in Patients Diagnosed with Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs): The GREPONET Study
Introduction: TGR (% change in tumour volume per month (%/m)) is postulated to be an early radiological biomarker to overcome limitations of RECIST in NETs.

#2102 Pre-Treatment Tumor Growth Rate (TGR0) in Patients Diagnosed with Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Treated with Systemic Therapies: Subgroup Analysis of the GREPONET Study
Introduction: TGR0 >4%/month was associated with shorter progression-free survival (PFS) in patients (pts) treated with lanreotide in the CLARINET study. Impact of TGR0 in pts treated with other systemic therapies (ST) and with Ki67>10% is unknown.

#313 Effect of Somatostatin Analogues in the Control of Tumor Growth in Patients with Metastatic Lung Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: Antitumor effect of Somatostatin analogues has been poorly documented in metastatic typical or atypical lung carcinoid tumors (LCT).

#219 Predictive Factors of Tumor Control in Patients with Well-differentiated Digestive Endocrine Carcinomas (WDEC) Treated with Lanreotide
Introduction: Somatostatin analogues (SSA) are indicated in the control of secretory symptoms of digestive endocrine tumors. The antiproliferative effect of SSA was recently demonstrated (Rinke et al, JCO 2009).

#2101 The Effect of Temozolomide on Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors in Vitro and Role of MGMT and MMR System in Temozolomide Resistance
Introduction: Temozolomide (TMZ) has been suggested as a treatment option for patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PNETs). The tumour response to TMZ has been linked to expression levels of O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) and components of the mismatch repair (MMR) system.

#151 Rationale for combining mTOR with other targeted agents in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Advanced neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are aggressive and incurable with standard treatment. Many cellular targets are being evaluated in this patient population, including mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a kinase that is the central regulator of several signaling pathways related to cell growth, angiogenesis, and bioenergetics. Because mTOR serves as a neoplastic switch activated by many cancer-related mutations, mTOR inhibition may have broad efficacy across tumor types, including NETs. Somatostatin analogs (SSAs) have long been used to treat carcinoid symptoms in NET patients. The SSA octreotide long-acting release (LAR) demonstrated significant antitumor effects against advanced midgut NETs in the phase III PROMID study.

#16 Endoglin as indicator of metastatic neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas are rare, highly vascularized tumors. Endoglin, a Transforming Growth Factor-β co-receptor, is a marker for angiogenic endothelial cells. Angiogenesis is required for tumor progression and the development of metastases. Recently, endoglin expression was found to be a prognostic marker in pancreatic carcinomas. However, the role of endoglin in neuroendocrine pancreatic tumors has so far not been studied.

#1115 Cancer Stem Cells in Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Cell Line P-STS: Isolation and Molecular Characterisation
Introduction: Cancer stem cells (CSCs) represent a small subpopulation of tumour cells responsible for invasive tumour growth. Even though the presence of CSCs in neuroendocrine tumours is documented, their role in neuroendocrine tumourigenesis and metastasis is not defined as yet.

#1475 Tumor Growth Rate (TGR) as an Indicator of Antitumor Activity with Lanreotide Autogel/Depot (LAN) vs Placebo (Pbo) in Intestinal/Pancreatic NET: Post Hoc Analysis of CLARINET Data
Introduction: TGR is a novel measure of tumor growth activity that may be more precise than RECIST for evaluating response to treatment of NETs.
