99mTc Labelled GLP-1 Scintigraphy with Use of [Lys40(Ahx-HYNIC-99mTc/EDDA)NH2]-Exendin-4 in the Diagnosis of Insulinoma Abstract #293

Introduction: GLP-1-receptor scanning offers a new approach for successful localization of small insulinomas or those that are undetectable by other methods.
Aim(s): To present the first successful experiences of our unit with the new tracer - [Lys40(Ahx-HYNIC-99mTc/EDDA)NH2]-Exendin-4.
Materials and methods: GLP-1 receptor scintigraphy was performed in two patients suspected to have insulinomas: 57-year-old woman with severe clinical hypoglycaemias, no lesion in CT and no uptake of the tracer in Somatostatin Receptor Scintigraphy (SRS); and in a 16-year-old man with hiperinsulinemia, small lesions in CT and no uptake of the tracer in SRS.

#2685 Apatinib Inhibits Tumor Growth and Angiogenesis in PNET Models
Introduction: Angiogenesis has a pivotal role in the growth and metastasis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). Apatinib inhibits angiogenesis as a highly selective KDR inhibitor and has been used to treat advanced gastric cancer and malignancies in clinical settings. However, the efficacy of apatinib in PNETs remains unclear.

#2834 Tumor-Promoting Effects of the Transcriptional Regulator CUX1 in PanNET
Introduction: Previously, we identified CUX1 as mediator of metastatic behaviour and poor differentiation in human insulinomas. CUX1 mediated tumor-promoting functions via enhancing proliferation, resistance to apoptosis and angiogenesis in-vitro and in-vivo.
