#2215 Development of Multiplex Biomarker Assay to Subtype Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PanNETs) with Distinct Prognosis and Mutations
Introduction: Overall 5-year survival for PanNETs ranges from 25-100%. The treatment paradigm for PanNETs largely based upon grades, which is significantly heterogeneous. We previously defined three molecular subtypes (distributed grades) of PanNETs using PanNETassigner signature. There is an unmet clinical need for prognostic and predictive biomarkers and clinically-relevant assays to complement grade and improve patient stratification.

#1404 The Proteasome Inhibitor Bortezomib Is a Highly Effective Treatment Option for Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms and Sensitizes to DNA Damaging Therapy In Vitro
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms are fairly rare tumors with very heterogeneous behavior and molecular characteristics. Their generally slow proliferation render them virtually resistant to many DNA damaging therapeutic approaches. Bortezomib has been shown to be effective in GEP-NENs in vitro but has been withdrawn from clinical assessment due to a small phase II study on bortezomib monotherapy in 2004.

#1939 Antiproliferative Effects of Lanreotide in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of the lung (BP-NETs, typical (AC) and atypical Carcinoids (ATC)) are rare tumors with heterogeneous behavior and molecular characteristics. For the intermediate proliferating BP-NETs treatment options are limited and unsatisfactory. Somatostatin analogues have not only anti-secretory effects, but also display antiproliferative features, as shown by PROMID and CLARINET trial. Nevertheless, their value in BP-NET is undefined so far.

#38 Expression of mTOR signaling pathway and effects of mTOR inhibitors on its pathway in human neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET), especially well-differentiated endocrine tumors, are often slow-growing, indolent, and may not become clinically apparent until the manifestations of metastatic spread or carcinoid syndrome. Results of previous studies demonstrated that phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway may be activated in the great majority of NET cells. mTOR inhibitors are therefore considered effective anti-tumor reagents but they may also induce an activation of PI3K/Akt and MAPK pathways as a compensatory action and reduce their own anti-tumor activities.

#96 Expression of components of the mTOR pathway in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Recently, the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitors have entered late phase clinical trials in a broad variety of solid human malignancies, including neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Since these drugs will certainly be used as routine therapeutics in the near future, it is surprising that information on the exact expression patterns of mTOR and its downstream target 4EBP1 in NETs is still lacking.

#173 Temozolomide in Metastatic Bronchial Carcinoids
Introduction: Metastatic bronchial carcinoids are rare neoplasms, where efforts of medical treatment thus far have been disappointing. Temozolomide has, however, shown some activity in a small prior study.

#226 Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 Receptor (IGF-1R) and its Inhibition in Non-functioning Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) was reported to be expressed in NET (neuroendocrine tumor) cells but its biological roles and activation status in non-functioning NET are unknown.

#280 Sorafenib and Bevacizumab Combination Targeted Therapy in Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumor: A Phase II Study of the Spanish Neuroendocrine Tumor Group (GETNE0801)
Introduction: Sorafenib (S) and bevacizumab (B) as single agents have shown efficacy and acceptable toxicity in NETs phase II trials. S+B combination has shown manageable toxicity in phase I trials in solid tumors.
