Affinity Proteomic Plasma Analysis of Human Well-Differentiated Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #672

Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine tumor (SI-NET) patients get diagnosis at the stage of metastasis and there is a lack of curative treatments.
Aim(s): To detect specific, reliable and sensitive biomarker for early diagnosis and disease progression status.
Materials and methods: Human Protein Atlas antibodies (Ab) profiled proteomic signatures from SI-NET blood patients (p) and healthy controls (HC) using an antibody suspension bead array. Untreated patients (153 p) at different stages were divided into two cohorts: cohort 1 (20 HC and 57 p) and cohort 2 (36 HC and 96 p). Markers screening using 188 Ab on cohort 1 selected 20 antigens validated then on cohort 2. Selection was based on univariate and multivariate statistical significance together with the consistency between experiments.

#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.

#193 Paraneoplastic Antigen Ma2 Autoantibodies as Specific Blood Biomarkers for Detection of Early Recurrence of Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) are rare fatal cancers. Many patients develop metastatis before diagnosis. There is no available curative treatment for patients with metastasis.

#674 Serum miRNA Expression in Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors and Biological Function of miR-196a in Neuroendocrine Tumor Cells
Introduction: MicroRNAs (miRNAs), post-transcriptional regulators, function either as tumor suppressors or oncogenes. We recently identified five upregulated and four downregulated miRNAs in small intestinal neuroendocrine tumor (SI-NET) tissue. We then started new analysis on body fluids to detect tumor signatures using patients’ serum.
