Introduction: The Swiss registry for NETs (SwissNET) was established in 2008 to improve epidemiological data on NET patients in Switzerland. Here the results after 30 months of follow-up are presented.
Aim(s): To systematically and prospectively collect relevant information of patients with NETs in Switzerland, based on a histologically confirmed diagnosis.
Materials and methods: After having obtained patient consent, contributing centers are visited by a study nurse, patient files are analysed and data are transferred into the database with disagreements resolved by a member of the SwissNET board. Inclusion criteria encompass NETs of gastrointestinal and pulmonary origin (typical and atypical pulmonary carcinoid).
