The SEER as a Prophet: Epidemiological Analysis as a Harbinger of Evolving Priorities in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasia Abstract #318

Introduction: Previous epidemiology analysis of tumor registries established that gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (GEP-NETs) were both more prevalent, and more malignant, than previously recognized.
Aim(s): To define how the epidemiology (incidence, ethnicity, gender, survival) of GEP-NETs has evolved in the US to determine priorities for current research.
Materials and methods: We interrogated the most recent release (1973 to 2007) of the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database using the SEERStat analysis tool, examining organ- and cell-specific neuroendocrine tumors localized to the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas. Specific foci were gender/ethnicity; outcomes were incidence and survival.

Introduction: Because of the low incidence, nonspecific symptoms at presentation, lack of awareness, and non-uniform classifications, gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) remains a poorly understood disease, and delayed diagnosis is common among patients with GEP-NETs.
