Niacin (vitamin B3) Suppletion in Patients with Serotonin Producing Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #1099

Introduction: Tryptophan is the precursor of serotonin and niacin (vitamin B3), critical for normal cellular metabolism. Tryptophan and niacin can be deficient in patients with serotonin producing neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Niacin deficiency can lead to symptoms including pellagra.
Aim(s): To assess niacin status before and after suppletion in these patients.
Materials and methods: We identified serotonin producing NET patients who had received oral niacin suppletion for tryptophan deficiency and/or pellagra associated symptoms. Pre-suppletion plasma tryptophan levels and niacin status based on the urinary niacin metabolite N1-methylnicotinamide (N1-MN) before (n=42) and after start suppletion (in 34 paired samples) were assessed.

#1884 Towards Optimal Personalized Diet and Vitamin Supplementation in NET Patients; A Feasibility Study
Introduction: Patients with a neuroendocrine tumor (NET) often have gastro-intestinal complaints due to somatostatin analogue (SSA), tumor mass, secretion of neuroendocrine amines or treatment. This can lead to impaired absorption of critical food components such as vitamins. Serotonin producing NET patients may also have low plasma tryptophan.

#3075 Telotristat Makes Significant Difference on Symptoms and Serotonin Levels in a Population with Widespread GI-NET and Severe Carcinoid Syndrome
Introduction: In spite of new treatments like PRRT or everolimus there is a clinical need for systemic therapies that complement SSAs (somatostatin analogs) and antidiarrheal agents in the treatment of carcinoid syndrome, a late stage problem in s-i-NET. Telotristat is a promising addition to our therapeutic arsenal.

#1150 Platelet Serotonin But Not Dopamine Concentrations Are Lower in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor and Renal Cell Carcinoma Patients Compared to Healthy Individuals.
Introduction: Platelets carry VEGF-A, serotonin and dopamine. Serotonin stimulates and dopamine inhibits tumor angiogenesis. We hypothesized that platelets are activated in tumor vasculature and release angiogenic factors, resulting in lower platelet serotonin and dopamine.
