Clinically Detected Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors are on the Rise: Epidemiological Changes in Germany Abstract #805

Introduction: -
Aim(s): To study the epidemiological changes of GEP-NET in Germany, we analyzed two time periods: 1976-1988 and 1998- 2006.
Materials and methods: We evaluated epidemiological data of GEP-NET from the former East German National Cancer Registry (1976-1988) and the Joint Cancer Registry (1998-2006). More than 10.8 million people were analyzed. Survival probabilities were calculated using life table analysis. In addition GEP-NET patients were evaluated for one or more second primary malignancies.

#390 An Increasing Incidence of GEP-NETs in Chengdu City with a Population of 14 Million in China
Introduction: The annual incidence of GEP-NETs in China is still unclear. All histopathology and cytopathology reports have yet to be collected in a national archive. No national or regional survey on GEP-NETs has been approved. West China Hospital (WCH), a university hospital located in Chengdu City with a population of 14 million, has established a series of databases in recent years.
