Introduction Small bowel (SB) neuroendocrine tumours (NET) are accruing significant clinical attention due to their increasing incidence ( 1 , 2 ) in addition to recent advances in their molecular biology ( 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 ) and treatment

Introduction The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Neuroendocrine Tumor (NET) Summit conference proceedings of 2008 identified that a critical unmet need in the management of NET disease was the absence of a sensitive and specific set of tumor

Introduction Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs), also known as islet cell tumors, are rare neoplasms arising from the endocrine pancreas, with a reported incidence of <1 per 100,000 persons per year ( 1 , 2 ). However, the incidence of

Introduction Lung cancer is a leading cause of death due to cancer in both sexes worldwide ( 1 , 2 ). A primary concern of this disease is the neuroendocrine phenotype linked to decreased survival and increased peripheral tumour cells, drug

Introduction Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) arise from the many cells of the diffuse endocrine system, which possess unique functions and the potential for hormone production. As such, NETs represent a heterogeneous group of tumors with variable

Introduction Small-bowel neuroendocrine tumours (SB-NETs) are rare secreting neoplasms. Hormones (serotonin, histamine, bradykinin, prostaglandins and chromogranin-A) released into the systemic circulation can lead to a carcinoid syndrome (CS

Introduction Well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) represent a heterogeneous group of rare tumours, which have a relatively indolent disease course. Primary NETs can arise from neuroendocrine cells at various anatomic sites. They

Introduction Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) represent a heterogeneous group of tumours with variable clinical behaviour and unpredictable prognosis. Their incidence has increased substantially in recent years, partly due to the development of
