24 Hour Urinary 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid (5HIAA) and Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide (VIP) Doubling-Times (DTs) Predict Disease-Specific Mortality (DSM) in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Abstract #1853

Introduction: New clinical prognostic tools are needed in order to select patients with NETs that are at higher risk of DSM. Biochemical biomarker DT is used clinically for prognosis prediction in several solid malignancies
Aim(s): To determine whether biomarker DT has prognostic utility in patients with NETs.
Materials and methods: Patients with NETs (n=184) were enrolled in a prospective study with comprehensive biochemical analysis. The current analysis included subjects with at least two consecutive measurements of any biochemical biomarker (chromogranin A, 5HIAA, gastrin, glucagon, pancreatic polypeptide and VIP). DTs for each biomarker were calculated among subjects with increasing levels: DT = [log10(2)*(time interval between tests)]/[log10(2nd value)–log10(1st value)]. Exact log-rank test was used to assess differences in DSM risk by DT.

#1854 VHL Genotype Is Associated with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PNETs) Phenotype in Patients with Von Hippel-Lindau Disease (VHLD)
Introduction: 8-20% of patients with VHLD develop PNETs. However, there are no markers for PNETs progression in VHLD patients. The type of mutation in VHL gene is associated with clinical phenotype of VHLD.

Introduction: The secretion of urinary 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid (u5-HIAA) by non-functioning PNETs (NF-PNET) has rarely been reported, and the data on the association between u5-HIAA levels and disease burden is scant.

Introduction: Patients with NETs have divergent survival, even when having the same site of primary tumor, tumor stage and grade. 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT has emerged as a sensitive imaging modality for detecting NETs.

#2215 Development of Multiplex Biomarker Assay to Subtype Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PanNETs) with Distinct Prognosis and Mutations
Introduction: Overall 5-year survival for PanNETs ranges from 25-100%. The treatment paradigm for PanNETs largely based upon grades, which is significantly heterogeneous. We previously defined three molecular subtypes (distributed grades) of PanNETs using PanNETassigner signature. There is an unmet clinical need for prognostic and predictive biomarkers and clinically-relevant assays to complement grade and improve patient stratification.
