    Abstract : Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), originally described as carcinoids, represent a rare and heterogeneous group of neoplasms associated with intensive secretion of hormones, bioactive peptides and amines. Most of the patients are diagnosed at a late stage of disease, often with liver metastases. READ MORE

  2. 2. Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors : Clinical Studies, Novel Serum Biomarkers and Sensitivity to Cytotoxic and Targeted Agents

    Author : Kosmas Daskalakis; Peter Stålberg; Per Hellman; Olov Norlén; Robert Bränström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; SI-NET; fibrosis; locoregional surgery; liver transplantation; biomarkers; ex vivo sensitivity.;

    Abstract : Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors (SI-NETs) are indolent neoplasms with an increasing annual incidence of approximately 1/100 000 people. They are often diagnosed at a late stage, restricting treatment efficacy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tailoring Radionuclide Therapy of Neuroendocrine Tumors - Bridging the Gaps

    Author : Anna Sundlöv; Tumörmikromiljö; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 177Lu-DOTATATE; PRRT; somatostatin analogs; pituitary function; renal function; dosimetry; 68Ga-DOTATATE; individualized treatment; neuroendocrine tumors;

    Abstract : Background and Aims: Radionuclide therapy is systemic, targeted radiotherapy. As such, we can apply the basic principles of radiobiology used in everyday practice in radiation oncology, as a means of tailoring the treatment to each patient and optimizing the balance between efficacy and toxicity.

  4. 4. Molecular studies of endocrine tumors : Insights from genetics and epigenetics

    Author : Samuel Backman; Per Hellman; Peter Stålberg; Olov Norlén; Robert Bränström; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Endocrine tumors may be benign or malignant and may occur in any of the hormone producing tissues. They share several biological characteristics, including a low mutation-burden, and may co-occur in several hereditary tumor syndromes. The aim of this thesis was to identify genetic and epigenetic aberrations in endocrine tumors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Profiling of Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors

    Author : Ellinor Andersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; small intestine neuroendocrine tumor; somatic copy number alteration; expression profiling; APLP1; survival; targeted therapy;

    Abstract : Small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) are malignant neoplasms usually presenting with disseminated disease and symptoms of hormone overproduction. Radical surgery is curative but can only be performed for localized disease. For most patients the disease follows a progressive and fatal course. READ MORE
