#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).

#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.

#819 Immunohistochemical and Genomic Evidence for the Expression of Somatostatin Receptors 1-5 and Dopamine Receptor 2 in Lung Carcinoids

Introduction: Expression of somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) and dopamine receptor 2 (DR2) in neuroendocrine tumors is of clinical importance, as they represent potential targets for diagnosis and treatment.

#245 Expression of Somatostatin Receptors and Dopamine 2 Receptor in Lung Carcinoids as a Possible Biotherapy Target

Introduction: Expression of somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) and dopamine 2 receptor (D2R) in neuroendocrine tumors is of clinical importance, as somatostatin analogues and dopamine agonists are used in biotherapy.

#140 Serotonin expression in gastric neuroendocrine tumors and in foci of endocrine cell hyperplasia

Introduction: The most abundant neuroendocrine (NE) cell population of the human oxyntic mucosa is the enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells, followed by ghrelin, somatostatin and serotonin cells, respectively. All types of ECL cell carcinoids (ECL-CCs) contain serotonin cells but in a varying frequency. Hitherto, only foci of ECL and ghrelin cell hyperplasia have been described in the peritumorous mucosa of types I and II ECL-CCs. It is established that hypergastrinaemia can cause ECL cell hyperplasia but it does not affect serotonin cells. The vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT 2) is used as an immunohistochemical marker for ECL cells.

Abstract Submissions in 2022

Abstract submissions for 2022 will open in September 2021!

 

The 19th Annual ENETS Conference in 2022 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 Virtual Conference 2021 can now access the abstract booklet, e-posters and videos, the poster carousel, and more via My ENETS.
