The vital role of neuroendocrine cells in lung development and neoplasia

Major Symposium
Chairs: W. Travis (Washington, United States Of America), E. Brambilla (Grenoble, France)
Aims: At the conclusion of this session, the participant will be able to:
(bullet) describe the current pathological classification of neuroendocrine lung tumours;
• know the important role of neuroendocrine cells in lung development and airway remodelling in various disease conditions;
• understand the problem of diffuse idiopathic pulmonary neuroendocrine hyperplasia;
• appreciate the contribution of molecular biology in the understanding of neuroendocrine proliferations and tumours.
