Neuroendocrine Cancer is also called as neuroendocrine tumor (NET) arise from the specialized cells in the neuroendocrine system. These cells combine the traits of nerve cells and hormone-producing endocrine cells. They most commonly occur in the intestine, where they are often called carcinoid tumors, but they are also found in the pancreas, lungs, and rest of the body.

Neuroendocrine Cancer exact cause is not known. However, there are certain risk factors for developing NST, such as inherited syndromes such as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1), which includes NETs, GI tract NET, and pancreatic NET.

Other hereditary conditions associated with NEC include Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome, neurofibromatosis type 1, and tuberous sclerosis complex. Other medical conditions, such as stomach diseases and a decrease in acid production, as well as environmental factors and diet, are linked to the development of NET.

Neuroendocrine Cancer cause symptoms based on their location and whether or not they are functional. A common symptom includes flushing (redness, warmth) in the face or neck without sweating, diarrhea, unclosing at nighttime, shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat or palpitations, high blood pressure, fatigue, weakness, abdominal pain, cramping, weight gain or loss, and swelling in the feet and ankles.

Neuroendocrine Cancer diagnosis initially involves the history of symptoms and performing a basic examination, including swollen lymph nodes. Later, it moves to CT scans and MRI imaging tests. Finally, a biopsy is performed to determine the grade of the tumor and the severity.

Neuroendocrine Cancer usually begins with surgery. Later, radiation therapy and chemotherapy are recommended as first-line treatments. Medication involving somatostatin analogues and targeted therapy are also recommended.
The pipeline of Neuroendocrine Cancer treatment market consists of a great variable of drugs. Angiogenesis inhibitors, Colony Stimulating Factor-1 Receptor (CSF-1R) inhibitors, Sphingosine 1-phosphate Receptor (S1PR) agonists, Programmed Cell Death Protein 1 (PD-1) antagonists, and some others are the most highlighted class of this indication. Ongoing research and current trials have the potential to change the market.

More than 30 key players, including pharma giants such as Boehringer Ingelheim, Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Merck, NexImmune, Roche and others are working to bring novel therapies that overcome the roadblocks of neuroendocrine cancer treatment pipeline.
