Neuroendocrine and Carcinoid Database

The overall purpose of this research project is to establish a database of patients with neuroendocrine and carcinoid tumors and to understand factors that may influence their outcomes.

Specific Aims:

1. Establish and maintain a prospective  database of patients diagnosed with neuroendocrine and carcinoid tumors.

2. Collect data and review existing data on personal and family histories, demographics, risk factors, and health behaviors.

3. The clinical data maintained in the database will serve as the foundation for future studies on how clinicopathologic features of the patients’ presentation, diagnosis and treatment correlate with outcome.  This database will represent a new resource and ultimately will aid in clinical research designed to help patients with neuroendocrine and carcinoid tumors.
