BGDO ONCOLOGY COURSE Friday 24 - Saturday 25 April 2014 • Maillen

Molecular Biology for GI Cancer: Practical applications in Daily Practice

Download the programme - Registration is still open!

Fundamental and translational research in molecular biology is evolving rapidly. This course reviews the main molecular alterations in gastro-intestinal cancer, heriditary syndromes and the perspectives for targeted therapies. This course applies to clinicians interested in digestive oncology, but without profound knowledge of recent progression in molecular biology.

dnetDNET registry

The Digestive Neuroendocrine Tumor registry is a registry to collect epidemiological and medicinal data of patients suffering from digestive neuro-endocrine tumours via an electronic database.

Digestive Neuro-Endocrine Tumours (DNET) are rare and imperfectly understood tumours. The estimated incidence is about 1-2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and they constitute 2% of all gastrointestinal tumours. These neoplasms can modify amines and synthesize a variety of peptide hormones, which may lead to impressive clinical syndromes. These tumours are also characterized by a relatively slow tumour growth, but nevertheless have a malignant potential.

add a patient nowRegistry goals:

  • To have a better knowledge of the epidemiology of Digestive Neuroendocrine Tumors
  • To understand variations in treatment and treatment related outcomes
  • To assess efficacy of diagnostic techniques and therapeutic strategies
  • To monitor safety of new diagnostic approaches and therapies
  • To improve patient care through feedback of data by giving physicians guidance in diagnosis and treatment policy.

Methodology The data capture of the registry is web-based. A scientific committee has been formed among BGDO members, and with the help of a database company, an interactive registry was created. The DNET registry is open to all members of the BGDO interested in and following patients with DNETs.

The scientific committee and the board of the BGDO strongly encourages all members of the BGDO to include new patients in order to reach the objectives of the registry.

This project cannot be a success without you, but also our partnership with the pharmaceutical companies, i.e. Ipsen, Novartis and Pfizer, which we want to thank also for their support. If you wish to participate to the DNET please contact the Clinical Study Coordinator of the BGDO Nathalie Verbist ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
