Aggressive Multi-Modality Treatment of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (pNETs): Outcomes in Patients with Advanced Disease Abstract #1144

Introduction: pNETs carry the worst prognosis of all NETs, particularly when hepatic metastasis are present. We try to actively treat all patients referred.
Aim(s): We aimed to determine survival at 1, 3 & 5 years for pNETs treated with modern aggressive multimodal management and compare outcomes to previously published data.
Materials and methods: Data was analysed from a single centre, prospective database. 95 of 396 NET patients were identified as pNETs. 3 patients had incomplete records and were excluded. Outcomes were analysed using Kaplan-Meier, with death as the endpoint.

#2794 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (pNET) Showing Remission after Tuberculostatic Treatment – An Unusual Case Report Suggesting Anti-Proliferative Effects of Antibiotics in pNETs
Introduction: Several classes of antibiotics have been associated with anti-proliferative effects on cancer cells; however, there is no data on this regarding pNETs.

#2986 Characterization of 142 Human Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: ATRX and DAXX Correlation with Clinical-Pathological Data
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) are rare and heterogeneous neoplasms with a 10-year survival rate less than 30%. Up to 43% of them are driven by inactivating mutations in ATRX or DAXX. These are important players at chromatin remodeling, that when mutated prone cancer cells to initiate the alternative lengthening of telomeres (ALT). ALT phenotype correlates with in situ loss of expression of the proteins ATRX or DAXX and can be corroborated by telomere-FISH.

#3080 Impact of Multimodal Perioperative Treatment in Patients with Resected Non-Metastatic Grade 3 Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NEN G3)
Introduction: Patients with grade 3 neuroendocrine neoplasm (NEN G3) have a limited prognosis. Even in a non-metastatic stage, the risk of recurrence after surgery is high. Multimodal perioperative treatment, including chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy in an adjuvant or neoadjuvant setting, has improved the prognosis in numerous tumor entities; however, it has not been systematically evaluated in NEN G3 so far. Nevertheless, perioperative chemotherapy is generally recommended in most current treatment guidelines for NEN G3.

#2795 Molecular Correlation of the Activity of Evofosfamide (EVO) in Combination with Sunitinib (SUN) in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (pNETs) in the SUNEVO GETNE Trial
Introduction: MEN1, DAXX, ATRX, and PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway genes are frequently mutated in pNETs. Sunitinib is approved and widely used in the metastatic setting but unfortunately, no validated predictive biomarker has been identified to guide therapy yet. The SUNEVO phase II trial of the Spanish Task Force Group for Neuroendocrine and Endocrine Tumours (GETNE) trial combined the pro-drug of EVO under SUN-induced hypoxic conditions.

#2908 Re-Cellularised Human Pancreas 3D Scaffolds as a Novel Model for Biomarker Discovery in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (pNETs)
Introduction: The lack of preclinical models of pNETs has challenged identification of tissue specific biomarkers of disease. Culturing cancer cells in their native tissue enables the close study of cell-ECM interaction and tissue remodelling. The biological products of such interactions can form a basis for discovery of novel biomarkers of the disease, and were previously linked with a range of inflammatory and malignant conditions.
