A Prospective Nordic Study on the Use of Chromogranin A for the Prediction of Progression in Patients with Pancreatic and Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #2190

Introduction: Retrospective studies showed that changes in plasma chromogranin A (CgA) might predict change in tumor burden in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (GEP-NET) patients.
Aim(s): The aim of this prospective study was to compare the association between changes in plasma CgA and changes in tumor burden on CT in GEP-NET patients with residual disease.
Materials and methods: We included 239 patients with a CT followed by at least one additional CT between 1 and- 24 months later. Change in tumor size was defined and categorized by RECIST1.1. An event was defined as CgA measured within 6 weeks of a CT. In addition, in a post-hoc analysis an event was defined as a CgA measured 3-6 month prior to the CT. A 25% change in CgA discriminated between increased, unchanged or decreased plasma CgA levels. Patients were included in Denmark, Norway and Sweden from December 2010 to December 2013.

#26 Molecular imaging of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours with Ga-68 DOTANOC PET/CT and correlation with an immunhistochemical quantification of somatostatin receptors using novel monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies
Introduction: Receptor PET/CT with somatostatin analogues marked with Gallium-68 (SMS-R-PET/CT) is currently the golden standard in diagnosing gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET), which are known for an overexpression of somatostatin receptors (SSTRs).

#56 Somatostatinreceptor scintigraphy with Tc-99m-tektrotyd in patients with neuroendocrine tumors: correlation with immunohistochemistry
Introduction: Somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (STRS) with Tc-99m-tektrotyd has been used in the past few years for diagnosis and staging of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). A number of clinicopathologic criteria proved to be useful predictors of malignant behavior of these tumors. Immunohistochemical markers for NETs include cell proliferation (Ki-67 index) and neuroendocrine markers such as chromogranin A (CgA) and synaptophysin.

#670 The Relationship Between the Ki-67 Protein and IGF-Related Genes in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients with Normal and Elevated Serum Chromogranin-A
Introduction: GEP-NETs are rare, heterogeneous neoplasms with a distinct biological and clinical behavior. Both IGF-system and Ki-67 indices have been reported as important stimulating factors in carcinogenesis and/or tumor progression. The tumor marker CgA is an independent predictor for survival as well. Currently no data are available about a possible interaction between IGF-system (IGF(-R)s, IRs, BPs) and Ki-67 protein in GEP-NET patients with normal and elevated serum CgA.
