Duodenal Carcinoid Tumors are Associated with Increased Survival and Earlier Detection When Compared with Jejunal or Ileal Carcinoids: A Population Based Study Abstract #500

Introduction: Seventy to eighty percent of small intestinal carcinoids (SIC) are found incidentally. Jejunal and ileal lesions can often be resected locally, but advanced duodenal carcinoids require high-risk pancreaticoduodenectomy.
Aim(s): To compare the epidemiology of SICs by intestinal site.
Materials and methods: We used the SEER database to identify patients diagnosed with SICs between 1973-2004, and stratified by small intestinal site. Chi-squared tests, KM methods and CPH models were used to compare sites.

#28 Prognostic Clinicopathologic Factors in Longitudinally Followed Patients with Metastatic Small Bowel Carcinoid
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors demonstrate heterogeneous behavior based upon site of origin and specific histology. Even after controlling for anatomic location, disease stage and histologic grade, registry studies show persistent diversity of outcome in patients with midgut carcinoid.

#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.

#306 The Risk of Metachronous Cancers In Patients with Small Intestinal Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: Small intestinal carcinoids (SIC) are the most common small bowel malignancies. No population-based study has examined the risk for, and prognosis of, metachronous cancers and SICs.

#408 Expression of Cocaine- and Amphetamine-Regulated Transcript is Associated with Worse Survival in Small Bowel Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: Cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART) peptide acts both as a neurotransmitter and hormone. We recently demonstrated that CART is expressed in several types of neuroendocrine tumors.
