Brief Summary:
This summary will use Panobinostat (LBH589) in patients with neuroendocrine tumors to see how the patient's tumor responds to panobinostat. Additionally, this study will examine how long it takes neuroendocrine tumor patient's cancer to progress while taking the drug and examine the overall survival of patients using panobinostat. Also, the study will examine the toxicity and tolerability of panobinostat in the patient population. Finally, this study will look at the effect of panobinostat on Notch 1 signaling before and after treatment with panobinostat.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: panobinostat
This is a single arm trial. All patients will take panobinostat
Drug: panobinostat (LBH589)
Panobinostat will be taken once daily at 20 mg three times a week (every Monday, Wednesday, Friday). It will be taken as long as patients are benefiting from treatment.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Tumor Response Rate of Patients With Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors Using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) Criteria. [ Time Frame: every 8 weeks, up to 5 years ]
    Confirmed anti-tumor response rate will be validated by the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST). All participants included in the study will be assessed for response to the proposed panobinostat treatment, even if there are protocol treatment deviations. Each participant will be assigned one of the following categories: complete response, partial response, stable disease, progressive disease, early death from malignant disease, early death from toxicity, early death because of other cause, or unknown.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Toxicities [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ]
    Evaluate the toxicity and tolerability of panobinostat in the patient population

  2. Evaluate the Time to Progression for Patients With Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors Treated With Panobinostat [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
  3. Delineate the Expression of Notch 1 in Neuroendocrine Tumor Samples Before and During Treatment With Panobinostat [ Time Frame: Pre-treatment and up to week 12 ]
    The expression of Notch 1 in neuroendocrine tumor samples will be evaluated prior to Cycle 1 Day 1 dose and at the end of Cycle 2 of treatment of treatment.

  4. Evaluate the Overall Survival of Patients With Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors Treated With Panobinostat [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
