2015 was an eventful year for the NorCal CarciNet Community and the NET Community as a whole.  

In just the last few months exciting developments have taken place that will impact our community as we go forward in 2016.

  • Three Phase III NET trials reported positive results - We will feature presentations on all three at the 2016 Bay Area Neuroendocrine Patient Conference on January 24, 2016. Click here for more information and to register (there is no charge). 
  • University of Iowa received a $10 million grant to study NETs from the National Cancer Institute.
  • Ga68 imaging for NETs is closer to approval, as the first New Drug Application was submitted.
  • NorCal CarciNET's President was honored as the 2015 Warner Advocacy Award Recipient.

NorCal CarciNET Community is a 501(c)(3) whose board members volunteer their time and energy so that all donations can be put to use to support our Community's Mission to "help those with neuroendocrine tumors and carcinoid to share challenges and experiences, learn about prognosis and treatments, find information, and improve communications between the medical community, patients and caregivers."
