Cross-Sectional Study Assessing the Feasibility of Using NET VITALS Communication Tool among Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #2751

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumor (NET) patients have reported ineffective communication with medical providers as a barrier to quality care.
Aim(s): To assess feasibility, patients’ perception of their understanding of their NET diagnosis, and patient satisfaction with using the NET VITALS questionnaire.
Materials and methods: NET VITALS, created by Los Angeles Carcinoid Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (LACNETS), is an 18 item communication tool consisting of domains from diagnosis to treatment. At the 2019 Annual LACNETS Conference, patients received NET VITALS and a satisfaction survey. The response rate, proportion of items completed, and satisfaction responses were used as indicators of feasibility, patients’ perception of their understanding of their NET diagnosis, and satisfaction with using NET VITALS respectively.

#2682 PAK4-NAMPT Dual Inhibition as a Novel Strategy for Therapy Resistant Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) remain an unmet clinical need. In this study, we show that targeting both nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) and p21-activated kinase 4 (PAK4) could become a synthetic lethal strategy for PNET.

#2683 Clinicopathological Features and Prognostic Analysis of 227 Cases with Well-Differentiated Gastric Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms (g-NENs) are a group of rare tumors with a strong heterogeneity, subdivided as well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NETs, type 1-3 g-NETs) and poorly-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma(NECs). WHO classification(2019) for digestive system tumours has carried out a new classification and grading criteria for NENs of the gastrointestinal tract recently, there is very few relevant clinical data based on this new classification, especially for gastric NETs(g-NETs).

#2685 Apatinib Inhibits Tumor Growth and Angiogenesis in PNET Models
Introduction: Angiogenesis has a pivotal role in the growth and metastasis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). Apatinib inhibits angiogenesis as a highly selective KDR inhibitor and has been used to treat advanced gastric cancer and malignancies in clinical settings. However, the efficacy of apatinib in PNETs remains unclear.
