Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Dissecting the Molecular Heterogeneity


Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PNENs) are a group of rare but biologically and clinically heterogeneous neoplasms with variable patient outcomes. Little is known about the molecular differences between PNENs and the biologic significance of such divergence.

Aim(s): Our study aims to uncover the molecular factors that underlie the clinical and biological heterogeneity among PNENs for a better understanding and potential classification of this disease.

Materials and methods: We applied next-generation sequencing to profile the exome and transcriptome, and quantitative mass-spectrometry to profile the global proteome of 41 primary PNEN specimens to identify DNA aberrations, and RNA and protein level differences.
