The NETwork! Registry Suggests Increasing Incidence in a National Study of Neuroendocrine Cancer in New Zealand (NZ) Abstract #2229

Introduction: NETwork! is a clinical and translational research program, including a retrospective epidemiological study of NETs in NZ.
Aim(s): Previous epidemiological descriptions of NETs are derived from institutional series or regional registries. We report data from this study, which includes every NET diagnosed in NZ over a 5-year period.
Materials and methods: Patients diagnosed with NET from 2008-2012, excluding pulmonary small cell carcinoma. Primary data source was New Zealand Cancer Registry searched using ICD-03 codes. Secondary data obtained from searches of pathology records in every hospital in NZ. Clinical data was collected from inspection of individual medical records.

#51 Epidemiology of the neuroendocrine tumors diagnosed in Cardarelli Hospital: a retrospective single-institution analysis of 274 cases
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are considered rare tumors and are characterized by their ability to produce peptides that cause typical hormonal syndromes. Neuroendocrine tumors consist of a wide spectrum of malignancies with different histology that can arise from distributed neuroendocrine cells in the body. Although these tumors are frequently indolent, they can be aggressive and resistant to therapy. Its incidence in the U.S.A has been rising in the last three decades (Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registry). NETs are more common than generally believed.
