#3053 The Splicing Machinery Is Dysregulated in Low Grade Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Tumors

Introduction: Alternative splicing dysregulation is increasingly regarded as a novel cancer hallmark influencing all key tumor features. We have shown that neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) overexpress aberrantly spliced variants of neuropeptides and receptors that increase tumor malignancy. More recently, we discovered that the splicing machinery is dysregulated in pituitary and pancreatic NETs. To date, the status of this machinery in low grade pulmonary NETs is largely unknown.

#3032 Lung Side and Site: The Importance of Location and the Prognostic Implication in Lung Neuroendocrine Tumors

Introduction: Lung neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are classified as typical (TC) and atypical carcinoids (AT), according to their mitotic count and the presence of necrosis. However, a role for tumor side (right vs left) and location (central vs peripheric) has not been established so far.

#3030 Targeting CXCR4 and Thioredoxin Reductase in Theranostics of Atypical Carcinoid and Neuroendocrine Carcinoma

Introduction: Atypical carcinoid and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) are currently incurable. There is thus a critical need for new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for lung neuroendocrine neoplasms (LNEN). Chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4), a G protein coupled receptor and theranostic target, plays a crucial role in metastases of LNEN. We hypothesize combination of thioredoxin reductase (TR) inhibitor represents a metabolic strategy to enhance cytotoxicity in peptide-receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) of LNEN.

#3026 IMP3 and Ki-67-Factors of Poor Clinical Outcome in Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Lung

Introduction: Insulin- like growth factor-II messenger RNA- binding protein- 3 (IMP3) is often detected in malignant neoplasm of different sites. Ki-67 proliferative index, although helpful in diagnosing neuroendocrine tumours of lung, has not been recognised as prognostic factor.

#3015 Biopsy Specimen Diagnosis in Pulmonary Carcinoids, A Shot in the Dark

Introduction: Pulmonary carcinoids (PCs) are rare well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors, which can be separated into typical carcinoid (TC) and atypical carcinoid (AC). Advised treatment for local carcinoid disease is surgical resection using lobectomy, while parenchymal saving strategies such as sub-lobar or endobronchial resection might be considered for TC. In general, pre-operative diagnosis using a (transbronchial/transthoracic) biopsy sample is performed to demonstrate malignancy. However, TC and AC classification can solely be performed on surgical resection specimens, which may challenge pre-operative treatment decisions.
