#3074 Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma and DIPNECH: An Unexpected Association

Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is a neuroendocrine tumour of the C-cells of thyroid gland. Diffuse idiopathic pulmonary neuroendocrine cells hyperplasia (DIPNECH) is a rare condition, thought to be primarily a neuroendocrine proliferative process which can develop into carcinoid tumours.

#3062 The Splicing Factor CELF4 Is Dysregulated in Neuroendocrine Tumors, Where It Can Enhance Aggressiveness Features

Introduction: There is increasing evidence that alterations in alternative splicing are linked to key tumor features in different cancers. Besides mutations, dysregulation of the splicing machinery would represent the main underlying cause for these alterations. Indeed, splicing dysregulation is emerging as a novel, transversal cancer hallmark, due to its association with multiple dysfunctions in tumor cells.

#3007 An mRNA-based Classifier Identifies PanNETs with Different Clinicopathological Characteristics

Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms that varies from indolent to highly aggressive diseases. Previous studies have suggested alterations of ATRX/DAXX as biomarkers of dismal prognosis, yet inconclusive data (especially in the metastatic setting) prevent those biomarkers to be used as routine clinical tests.

#2986 Characterization of 142 Human Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: ATRX and DAXX Correlation with Clinical-Pathological Data

Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) are rare and heterogeneous neoplasms with a 10-year survival rate less than 30%. Up to 43% of them are driven by inactivating mutations in ATRX or DAXX. These are important players at chromatin remodeling, that when mutated prone cancer cells to initiate the alternative lengthening of telomeres (ALT). ALT phenotype correlates with in situ loss of expression of the proteins ATRX or DAXX and can be corroborated by telomere-FISH.

#2982 Comprehensive Molecular Analysis Identifies Driver Mutations in Metastases of Sporadic Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumours of the Small Intestine

Introduction: Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumours (SI-NETs) represent a heterogenous group of tumours. The molecular mechanisms which contribute to progression of SI-NETs are poorly elucidated. They are considered to be molecularly distinct from neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs), which share oncogenic pathways with adenocarcinomas.

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.
