#2269 Can Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1), IGF-1 Receptor, Connective Tissue Growth Factor and Ki-67 Labelling Index Have a Prognostic Role in Pulmonary Carcinoids?

Introduction: Altered expression of Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1), its receptor (IGF-1R), Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) and Hypoxia Factor-1 (HIF-1), has been implicated in tumorigenesis. These factors have not been studied systematically in Pulmonary Carcinoids (PCs).

#1886 Effect of Treatment with Prolonged-Release Somatostatin Analogues on the Concentration of Serum Fibrosis Markers in Patients with Carcinoid Syndrome.

Introduction: A fibrosis is a major local and/or distant complication of neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) of the small intestine secreting serotonin. Tumour cells produce connective tissue growth factor CTGF and transforming growth factor TGFα and TGFβ which locally stimulate fibrosis and cause distant fibrosis.

#911 Immunohistochemical Expression of Connective Tissue Growth Factor and Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 in Lung Carcinoids

Introduction: Several studies have shown altered expression of Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) and its receptor (IGF-1R) in different types of cancers. Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) is triggered by Serotonin (5-HT) and Hypoxia Induced Factor 1 (HIF-1) and has been associated with tumor expansion and desmoplastic reaction in carcinoid tumors.

#908 Role of Epithelial-to-Mesenchymal Transition Markers in Predicting Bone and Visceral Metastases from NETs

Introduction: Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of tumor cells has been recently postulated as a pivotal mechanism driving metastatic spread.

Abstract Submissions in 2023

Abstract submissions for 2023 will open in September 2022!

 

The 20th Annual ENETS Conference in 2023 will provide the principal platform for NET researchers around the world to present their latest findings. ENETS will select the best abstracts submitted in both clinical and basic science and present these in sessions within the framework of its scientific programme.

 

Participants of the ENETS Conferences in 2022 can now access the abstract booklet, e-posters and videos, the poster carousel, and more via My ENETS.
