Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are cancers that begin in specialized cells in the neuroendocrine system. There are many types of neuroendocrine tumors. The diagnosis and treatment of a neuroendocrine tumor depend on the type of tumor, its location, whether it produces excess hormones, how aggressive it is, and whether it has spread to other parts of the body. The most common place in the body where NETs form is the GI tract, or digestive system. In general, most GI tract NETs start in the small intestine or rectum. They can also start in the stomach, appendix, colon, and elsewhere in the GI tract. This Special Issue focuses on pancreas neuroendocrine tumors and the upper GI tract. We invite you to submit original articles or systematic reviews on topics related to current advances in neuroendocrine research.

Dr. Steven Cohen
Guest Editor
