#3010 International Validation of a Nomogram to Predict Recurrence after Resection of Grade 1 and 2 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors

Introduction: A prediction model to predict recurrence within 5 years after surgery for nonfunctional pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNets) was recently published. This model includes WHO tumor grade, lymph node status and perineural invasion as predictors.

#2961 Our Experience Using a New Scoring System to Detect Disease Recurrence after Curative Surgical Resection of Well-Differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors

Introduction: For patients with nonfunctioning pNET  ≥20 mm in size without distant metastasis, complete surgical resection is recommended as the primary curative strategy. Effective follow‐up programs are designed to detect recurrence at an early stage, given that treatment of limited disease has the most favorable outcome. However, data on post‐curative surgical recurrence remains limited, making it challenging to determine the best follow‐up strategy and to detect the best treatment options as an adjuvant therapy for selected patients.

#2800 Thymosin Beta 4 Is an Autocrine Mitogen for Neuroendocrine Tumour Cells

Introduction: The most commonly used NET marker chromogranin A, has a sensitivity between 60-90% and a specificity of less than 50%, hence better NET markers are needed. Previous secretome analysis using BON1, NCI-H727 and SHP-77 cell lines has led to the discovery of various candidate NET markers. One such marker is Thymosin Beta 4 (TB4). TB4 is a small 43 amino acid intracellular peptide first isolated from bovine thymus tissue.TB4 or its oxidised form TB4SO are thought to play a role in various aspects of cancer biology including tumour invasion, metastasis and apoptosis.

#2784 Predictive Factors of Tumor Recurrence after Radical Surgery for Gastro-Entero-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (GEP-NENs): Identification of High-Risk Subgroups

Introduction: There is no proven role for adjuvant medical therapy after curative surgery (R0) for GEP-NENs.

#2742 Anti-Tumor Effects of Semaphorin 4D Blockade Unravel a Novel Pro-Invasive Mechanism of Vascular Targeting Agents

Introduction: One of the main consequences of inhibition of neovessel growth produced by angiogenesis inhibitors is increased intratumor hypoxia. Growing evidence indicates that tumor cells escape from this hypoxic environment to better nourished locations, presenting hypoxia as a positive stimulus for invasion. Particularly, anti-VEGF/R therapies produce hypoxia-induced invasion and metastasis in a spontaneous mouse model of pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer, RIP1-Tag2.
