A Pilot Study on the Immunohistochemical Expression of Chromogranin and/or Synaptophysin in Moderate to Poorly Differentiated Gastroenteropancreatic Carcinomas Abstract #384

Introduction: Recent advances in specific treatment for neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) prompted us to reinvestigate the old phenomenon of neuroendocrine differentiation in carcinomas of the GI tract which has previously been shown to carry no prognostic significance.
Aim(s): We studied the immunohisotchemical expressions of chromogranin and synaptophysin in a group of ordinary adenocarcinomas of the gastrointestinal tract including the pancreas.
Materials and methods: A total of 100 cases of moderate to poorly differentiated adenocarcinomas of the stomach (eight), colon and rectum (83), pancreas (eight) and duodenum (one) were identified and tumor tissues were retrieved for immunohistochemical staining for chromogranin and synaptophysin.

Introduction: Previously our group showed the potential use of a score based on MGMT, NDRG-1 and PHLDA-3 immunohistochemistry (IHC) expression as predictor of outcome in operated PanNET (Viúdez et al. Oncotarget 2016).

Introduction: The liver is the most commonly affected organ in metastatic neuroendocrine disease and is the most incriminating factor for patient survival. Additional treatment of liver disease with radioembolization may improve outcome in NET patients with bulky residual liver disease after PRRT.

#2712 HORMONET: Study of Tamoxifen in Well Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) and Hormone Receptor Positive Expression
Introduction: We have shown immunohistochemistry (IHC) expression of estrogen (ER) and progesterone receptors (PR) in 20.8% and 18.8% of 96 NET patients (pts). An old clinical trial (Mortel C, 1984) suggested antitumor effects of estrogen/progesterone-directed therapies in NET. Yet the effects of an antiestrogen agent in NET pts whose tumor express ER and/or PR are unknown.
