genomic landscape of SI-NETs remains poorly elucidated and biomarkers have not yet been identified. Moreover, the genetic constitution of SI-NETs has been shown to differ compared to pancreatic NETs ( 11 ). With this review we aim to provide the clinician

. Failure to replicate genotype studies is common in candidate gene association studies ( 61 ). In fact, no genetic study on female sexuality has been successfully replicated ( 9 ). Further research and replication of the results are needed to clarify such

(NGS) approach, we screened 23 PDTC for variants in 48 cancer-relevant genes. The main goal addressed in this exploratory study was to characterise novel genetic changes as potential targets for further research as well as establishing the NGS technique
