#1086 mTOR Down-Stream Signaling Pattern May Predict pNET Response to Everolimus
Introduction: NETs are rare neoplasms arising from neuroendocrine cells spread in the respiratory and gastro-entero-pancreatic epithelium. The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway plays a central role in the regulation of cell growth, metabolism, and apoptosis representing a novel molecular target. This pathway is constitutively activated in pancreatic NETs (pNETs) providing the basis for the development of specific mTOR inhibitors as new therapeutic tools.

#1089 Role of TGF beta-1 in Regulating Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Cell Viability
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are heterogeneous neoplasms arising from neuroendocrine cells spread in the respiratory and gastro-entero-pancreatic epithelium. The role of transforming growth factor beta-1 (TGF b-1) in NET biology is largely unknown. TGF b-1 signaling pathway is tumor suppressive in most non-transformed epithelial cell lines. In contrast, many human carcinomas are refractory to the growth–inhibitory effects of TGF b-1.

#1249 Impact of VEGF and VEGFR Polymorphisms on Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Gastro-Entero-Pancreatic System (GEP-NET) Outcome.
Introduction: Improving our understanding of the molecular biology of GEP-NETs represents a key challenge in the treatment of these rare tumors.
