A New Scoring System to Predict Recurrent Disease in Grade 1 and 2 Non-Functional Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors. Abstract #1677

Introduction: Surgical resection is the preferred treatment for NF-pNET, however recurrence still occurs frequently after curative surgery, worsening prognosis of patients.
Aim(s): To predict recurrence in patients with grade 1 or 2 non-functioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NF-pNET) after curative resection.
Materials and methods: Retrospectively patients with grade 1 or 2 NF-pNET without distant metastases, hereditary syndromes were included. Local or distant tumor recurrence was scored. The recurrence-score was developed to predict recurrence within 5-years after curative resection using independent predictors for recurrence.

#1674 Meta-Analysis of Recurrence after Curative Surgery of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors.
Introduction: Follow-up after curative surgery for pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET) is designed to detect recurrence, however reliable recurrence rates are difficult to deduct from literature. Without this knowledge, appropriate follow-up regimens and indications for adjuvant treatment remain unclear.

#1086 mTOR Down-Stream Signaling Pattern May Predict pNET Response to Everolimus
Introduction: NETs are rare neoplasms arising from neuroendocrine cells spread in the respiratory and gastro-entero-pancreatic epithelium. The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway plays a central role in the regulation of cell growth, metabolism, and apoptosis representing a novel molecular target. This pathway is constitutively activated in pancreatic NETs (pNETs) providing the basis for the development of specific mTOR inhibitors as new therapeutic tools.

#1089 Role of TGF beta-1 in Regulating Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Cell Viability
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are heterogeneous neoplasms arising from neuroendocrine cells spread in the respiratory and gastro-entero-pancreatic epithelium. The role of transforming growth factor beta-1 (TGF b-1) in NET biology is largely unknown. TGF b-1 signaling pathway is tumor suppressive in most non-transformed epithelial cell lines. In contrast, many human carcinomas are refractory to the growth–inhibitory effects of TGF b-1.
