In a study, the risk of proximal colon cancer was 27% lower among the most physically active participants when compared with the least active. Similar results were seen with risk for distal colon cancer.

While several aspects of therapy for patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) have remained unchanged for several decades, new therapeutic options have emerged within the past 5 years, particularly targeted agents. These agents represent a new era for treatment of GEP-NETs, but also create a key area of educational need, as the new data challenge the current paradigm of patient treatment. These activities review the novel treatment choices for improving care in patients diagnosed with GEP-NETs.
