NET – Incidental Findings: Small, Silent and Innocent? Abstract #1866

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are rare neoplasms, with an overall incidence of 2 cases per 100,000 individuals per year. This number is increasing due to improved diagnosis, classification and higher imaging sensitivity, which lead to discovering of small and clinically insignificant NETs.
Aim(s): Assess treatment approach after incidentally diagnosed NET.
Materials and methods: Retrospective, descriptive study of patients incidentally diagnosed with NET in our institution between April 2012 and December 2016.

Introduction: The ABO blood group may influence the development and progression of cancer. In particular, the prognosis of pancreatic adenocarcinoma is better in patients with blood group O. This has not been extensively explored in PanNET.

Introduction: Conservatively,the incidence of NETs is 7 / 000' p.a, however,the prevalence of patients living with NETs is higher,40/000',making it the 2nd most common GI malignancy after colorectal cancer.Patients are living longer,however,with impaired quality of life.Management of debilitating symptoms such as diarrhoea,fatigue,anxiety,and flushing are complex and heterogenous.

#2757 Effectiveness of Lanreotide 120 mg (LAN) in Patients with Locally Advanced or Metastatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (panNET) in Routine Clinical Practice
Introduction: PanNETs are the second most common type of tumour of the pancreas. Most patients have metastatic disease at diagnosis with median survival ranges from 2 to 5 years. Somatostatin analogs (SSAs) control symptoms and reduce tumour growth in panNET. In the panNET subgroup of the CLARINET study, lanreotide autogel 120 mg reduced the relative risk of progression or death by more than 40% compared with placebo at week 96.
