42 results for "CpG island methylator phenotype".
Introduction: The molecular pathogenesis of sporadic insulinoma is unclear, though some of the genes were found to be slienced by promoter methylation. CpG island methylator phenotype (CIMP) was found in a number of common tumors and correlated with loss of expression of p27, which may contribute to the tumorigenesis of the tumors.

Introduction: Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominant inherited tumor syndrome that is caused by germline mutations in the Menin suppressor gene on chromosome 11q13. Small intestine neuroendocrine neoplasias (SI-NEN) are currently not considered to be part of the phenotype of the MEN1-syndrome.

Introduction: Although much progress has been made in the past 2-3 years in terms of understanding signaling pathways in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NENs), approved treatment options are still limited. Cancer Immunotherapy has been announced as the breakthrough of the year in 2013 and might become an integral part of the clinical management strategy for solid tumors including GEP-NENs. Therefore, to develop immunotherapeutic strategies against NENs we need to know which immune escape mechanisms are relevant in high and low grade NEC/NENs.

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare neoplasms, heterogeneous, and with variable biological behavior. NETs can be sporadic or they can arise in complex endocrine hereditary syndromes such as Multiple Endocrine Neoplasias (MEN), Familial Paragangliomatosis (FPGL), Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), von Hippel-Lindau Disease (VHL), Tuberous Sclerosis (TSC) and Carney Complex (CC). By performing genetic screening, patients with hereditary NETs can be identified before the development of tumors.

Introduction: Insulinomas are β cell neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) that secrete insulin, and ~4% of insulinoma patients have multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1). One in ten MEN1 patients present with an insulinoma. Previous reports describe insulinomas as possibly having typical granules (46.4%) or atypical smaller granules (34.3%), both associated with adenomas, or agranular cells (14.3%) associated with carcinomas. MEN1 knockout (Men1+/-) mice develop pancreatic NETs that are mostly insulinomas, and their ultrastructural phenotype is unknown. We hypothesized that these may resemble the adenoma phenotype with atypical granules.

Introduction: 8-20% of patients with VHLD develop PNETs. However, there are no markers for PNETs progression in VHLD patients. The type of mutation in VHL gene is associated with clinical phenotype of VHLD.

Introduction: Patient tumour-derived cell lines have been widely used for studying the molecular mechanisms of tumours and their response to therapy. The establishment of cell lines from gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (GEPNETs) has proved difficult, but despite the challenges a limited amount of cell lines now exists.

Introduction: Recently, truncating germline mutations in TMEM127 gene have been identified in 30% of familial cases of adrenal pheochromocytoma (PHEO) and in 3% of apparently sporadic cases.

Introduction: MENX is a spontaneous multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome in the rat showing phenotypic overlap with both MEN1 and MEN2 human syndromes. MENX is caused by a biallelic germline mutation of the Cdkn1b (p27) gene and it was described as recessively inherited. CDKN1B alterations have been also identified in human patients with MEN1-like features but no MEN1 mutations (MEN4).
