Gastroentero-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEP-NETs) are generally classified as rare diseases. Little is known about their cell biology and their mechanistic regulation. During the last years, the incidence of GEP-NETs is continuously increasing worldwide. In parallel, novel treatment options are currently evaluated which may substantially improve prognosis of patients with NETs. Data on such tumours in Switzerland, however, is scarce and treatment strategies vary throughout the country.
To systematically and prospectively collect clinical information of patients with GEP-NETs in Switzerland based on a histologically confirmed diagnosis.
All NETs of both, gastrointestinal and pulmonary origin are included provided that patients have given informed consent. Data will be entered prospectively and anonymised in a specifically designed database. Contributing centres and general practitioners are visited by a study nurse, patient files are analysed and data is transferred to the database. In case of conflicting evidence, questions are resolved in collaboration with a review board of SwissNET. Evaluation of treatment modalities and patient outcomes (e.g. mortality, hospitalisation rate) will take place within regular time frames.
