#1557 Dual High Throughput Proteomic and Transcriptomic Screen for Predictive Biomarkers of Everolimus Sensitivity in Pancreatic NET
Introduction: mTOR inhibitor Everolimus is approved for the treatment of well-differentiated PNET. The heterogeneity of the response rate and the potential toxicity warrant predictive biomarkers.

#582 Comparison of biomarkers in predicting presence and severity of carcinoid heart disease in patients with metastatic mid-gut neuroendocrine tumours
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) is evaluated using echocardiography. The utility of plasma biomarkers for detecting the presence/severity of CHD is under-explored.

#491 International Survey for the Use of Biomarkers and Molecular Imaging in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET): What we are Using in Daily Practice
Introduction: Several guidelines have given recommendations for optimal use of biomarkers and molecular imaging. However, those guidelines’ implementation may not be always possible due to local policies or lack of access to several diagnostic studies.

#204 A Proteomic Approach Identifies Novel Proteins Involved in Invasion Mechanisms in Enteroendocrine Carcinomas
Introduction: Enteroendocrine tumors dramatically lack reliable biomarkers to accurately select therapeutic strategy, due to a poor knowledge of molecular mechanisms leading to local invasion and dissemination.

#2230 Does Somatostatin Receptor (SSR) Positive Tumor Volume Determined on Ga68 DOTANOC PET/CT in Patients with Paraganglioma (PGL)/Pheochromocytoma(PCC) Correlate with Biomarkers? An Explorative Study
Introduction: SSR PET/CT is used in workup of pts with PCC/ PGL. Correlation of tumour burden on PET & biomarkers 24 hr Urine Metanephrines (UMET), normetanephrine (UNMET), UMET:creatinine ratio (MET:Crea),UNMET:creatinine (UNMET:crea) & Chromogranin A (CGA) has not been done.

#29 Serum chromogranin A correlation with tumor burden in metastatic small bowel carcinoid patients
Introduction: Patients with neuroendocrine tumors may have clinical courses that range from fairly indolent to more aggressive. Cross–sectional studies, nuclear imaging and biochemical markers are often used to monitor disease progression. Optimal surveillance tests and intervals have not been firmly established. Studies suggest that chromogranin A (CgA) may be a surrogate marker for tumor burden.

#1893 Peripheral Blood Biomarkers of Systemic Inflammation May Be Prognostic in Metastatic Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumour (GEPNET) Patients Following 177Lu-DOTATATE (LuTate)
Introduction: LuTate is a treatment for well-differentiated NETs with adequate somatostatin receptor expression. Prognostic biomarkers in this population are lacking. Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is prognostic in the majority of solid tumours but is reported to have less value in indolent well-differentiated NETs.

#2173 Decreased Serum Amyloid A1 as Potential Diagnostic Marker for Gastro-Entero-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: Gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (GEP-NENs) are rare tumors with an increased incidence reported in recent years. Researchers have shown that tumor cells produce and secrete more exosomes compared with normal cells. Serum amyloid A1 (SAA1) is elevated in patients with liver cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer and endometrial cancer. However, the relation between SAA1 and GEP-NENs remains unclear.

#595 A Single Fasting Plasma 5-HIAA Value Correlates with 24-Hour Urinary 5-HIAA Values and Other Biomarkers in Midgut Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: 5-hydoxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) is used for the evaluation of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), however, the current 5-HIAA assay requires a 24-hour urine collection which is inconvenient.

#20 Paraneoplastic antigen Ma2 (PNMA2) auto-antibodies as biomarkers for early small intestine neuroendocrine tumors detection
Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) comprise well-differentiated NET (benign carcinoid), well-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma (malignant carcinoid) and poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC). The majority of NET patients have developed liver metastases at the time of diagnosis and surgery is then seldom curative. Novel predictive, diagnostic and prognostic markers are thus needed to improve our capabilities to diagnose and cure these tumors. We have previously identified six novel marker genes for neuroendocrine tumor cells by using Affymetrix microarrays and advanced bioinformatics. One of this markers, the paraneoplastic antigen Ma2 (PNMA2), which is normally expressed only in nervous tissue, can in the process of carcinogenesis be detected in tumors located outside the nervous system. The finding that Ma2 is expressed in small intestine neuroendocrine primary tumors and their metastases made it interesting to screen whether antibodies against Ma2 are present in the serum of NET patients.
