The 2014 annual meeting of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) featured a number of interesting studies in endocrine and neuroendocrine oncology. This report will first focus on two presentations regarding lenvatinib in the treatment of thyroid cancers. In addition to this, the final OS of the RADIANT-3 study, evaluating everolimus in patients with advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (NET), will be summarized. The last part of the report will focus on the molecular profiling of NETs and discusses a study assessing the quality of life in NET patients using lanreotide autogel.
