#2682 PAK4-NAMPT Dual Inhibition as a Novel Strategy for Therapy Resistant Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) remain an unmet clinical need. In this study, we show that targeting both nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) and p21-activated kinase 4 (PAK4) could become a synthetic lethal strategy for PNET.

#2934 Vasostatin-1 Predicts Recurrence in Patients Submitted to Surgery for Nonfunctioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (NF-PanNET)
Introduction: An association between preoperative Vasostatin-1 (VS-1) plasma level and pathological features of aggressiveness was previously reported in patients with surgically resected nonfunctioning (NF) PanNET.

#2988 Epigenetic Treatment with Histone Deacetylase Inhibitor Enhances Uptake of [111In]In-DOTA-TATE by Increased SST2 Expression on Neuroendocrine Tumor Cells
Introduction: The somatostatin-2 receptor (SST2) is a target for peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) in neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). By using epigenetic drugs, which can regulate gene transcription, PRRT efficacy may be further improved due to enhanced SST2 expression.

#3320 TGF-β increase caspase activation and migration in typical bronchial carcinoids
Introduction: Typical bronchial carcinoids (TBC) are well-differentiated neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) whose management can still be very challenging due to reduced sensitivity to therapy. Previous studies have reported TGF-β’s ability to activate mTOR pathway and induce epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT). Moreover, preliminary results show an overexpression of TGF-β signalling and caspase activation in TBC.

#2707 Investigating the Crosstalk between MEN1, p53 and Notch Reveals Biomarkers of Formation of Primary Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) comprise a heterogeneous group of endocrine tumors. Previous studies showed that mutations of p53 are extremely rare; whereas genetic changes of MEN1 frequently occur and are correlated with poor prognosis in PNET. Still, their roles in tumorigenesis remain elusive.

#2780 Intracardiac Paragangliomas (PGLs): A Single-Institution Experience
Introduction: Intracardiac PGLs are extremely rare neuroendocrine tumors. There are few reported series in literature, indicating surgery as the most effective treatment modality.

#2785 Inhibition of Cyclin Dependent Kinases Overcomes MYC-Driven Secondary Resistance to Everolimus in Digestive NETs
Introduction: Dysregulation of the mTOR pathway in digestive neuroendocrine tumours (d-NETs) led to the introduction of Everolimus (EVE) as treatment. EVE significantly increases PFS, but most patients acquire resistance, due to activation of feedback loops.

#2868 Differential Gene Expression May Predict Response to Somatostatin Analogues (SSAs) in Gastrointestinal (GI) Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: SSAs are commonly used to treat GI NETs as they have anti-secretory and antiproliferative effects. However, genetic markers predicting response to SSAs are lacking.

#2908 Re-Cellularised Human Pancreas 3D Scaffolds as a Novel Model for Biomarker Discovery in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (pNETs)
Introduction: The lack of preclinical models of pNETs has challenged identification of tissue specific biomarkers of disease. Culturing cancer cells in their native tissue enables the close study of cell-ECM interaction and tissue remodelling. The biological products of such interactions can form a basis for discovery of novel biomarkers of the disease, and were previously linked with a range of inflammatory and malignant conditions.

#2910 Virotherapy Shows Promising Efficacy in Neuroendocrine Cancers
Introduction: So far, there have been only two clinical studies using virotherapeutics to treat neuroendocrine cancers (NCT00314925 & NCT02749331). Notably, none of these approaches employed a clinically approved virotherapeutic compound.
