#3056 Multi-Omic Characterization and Evolution of Neuroendocrine Neoplasm Organoids

Introduction: Molecular characterizations of neuroendocrine neoplasm (NENs) have unveiled candidate alterations associated with aggressiveness and suggested that the molecular link between neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) might be subtler than initially thought. For example, we have recently unveiled a new entity of pulmonary carcinoids (supra-carcinoids) with carcinoid-like morphology yet the molecular and clinical features of large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC). Testing hypotheses to explain aggressiveness and the possibility of progression or transition from NET to NEC through the accumulation of genetic anomalies requires in vitro and in vivo experimental models.

#2944 Soluble ST2 (sST2) Levels in the Management of Carcinoid Heart Disease in Patients with Neuroendocrine Cancer

Introduction: The identification of a sensitive biomarker to detect the presence and severity of carcinoid heart disease could allow more selective use of clinical and echocardiographic screening. ST2 is a protein belonging to the family of interleukin 1 receptors, present both in the isoform of transmembrane (ST2L) and in the soluble one (sST2). sST2 blocks the anti-inflammatory, anti-hypertrophic, and anti-fibrotic effects of cytokine IL-33 on the myocardium and recent studies have shown that sST2 levels increase in the blood of patients diagnosed with heart failure.

#2849 PRRT Neuroendocrine Tumor Response Assessment Using Circulating Transcript Analysis: The NETest

Introduction: The absence of an accurate blood biomarker to predict and monitor PRRT is a key unmet need.

#2797 Assessment of Quality of Life in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours: Results of a Systematic Literature Review

Introduction: Health related quality of life (HRQoL) is increasingly important as a concept reflecting the patients’ perspective in conjunction with the disease presentation severity and treatment. Understanding the impact of treatment on neuroendocrine tumour (NET) patients’ HRQoL is paramount given the nature of the disease.
