NET Clinics & Research

NET Clinics

Because of their relative rarity and diverse sets of symptoms, the diagnosis and treatment of Neuroendocrine Tumours require a multidisciplinary approach. This means that specialists from different fields – endocrinology, gastroenterology, oncology, surgery, radiology, nuclear medicine, genetics, pathology, and nursing – may all be involved in the treatment of NET patients.

It is for this reason that a number of multidisciplinary teams and clinics centred on NETs have been set up around the UK and Ireland. To find your local team, please visit the UKINETS website.

If you’d like to find out more about your local NET centre, please don’t hesitate to call us on 01926 883487.

Research

Research involves clinical and non-clinical studies to look at aspects of a diagnosis from disease type to diagnostics to treatments to living with.

Non-clinical trials may include personal interviews, quality of life studies, blood sampling and pre-clinical trials – such as laboratory studies, amongst others.

All clinical trials of new medicines go through a series of phases to test whether the medicines are safe and whether they work.

Early research may involve volunteers (who may or may not have a health problem) attending a clinic to assess the effects and safety of a new treatment.

UKINETS

The UK and Ireland Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (UKI NETS) aims to promote research, education, training and best clinical practice across a multidisciplinary area in the field of endocrine tumours.
