Analysis of Predictive Markers of Response to Chemotherapy in Microdissected Components of Mixed Neuroendocrine/non-Neuroendocrine Carcinomas Abstract #733

Introduction: Mixed neuroendocrine (NE)/non-NE carcinomas lack pathological or molecular prognostic or predictive markers.
Aim(s): To analyze the pathological features and the expression of genes involved in DNA repair or synthesis in a cohort of mixed NE/non-NE carcinomas from different sites, as compared to patients’ outcome.
Materials and methods: A series of 42 cases (10 from lung, 18 from the gastro-entero-biliary system, 14 from the urogenital tract) was available for clinical and pathological correlates. In 35 cases, residual pathological material was adequate for microdissecting both NE and non-NE components and for quantitative PCR analysis of RRM1, ERCC1, TS and TOPOIIa. Control cases of pure NE and non-NE cancers were analyzed in parallel.

#2855 Whole Exome Sequencing Reveals the Monoclonal Origin of Gastric Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinomas
Introduction: Gastric mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinomas (g-MANECs) are rare neoplasms consisting of adenocarcinoma and neuroendocrine neoplastic components. G-MANECs show more malignant characteristics than gastric adenocarcinomas, while molecular mechanisms underlying the co-existence of the two components remains unknown.

#2982 Comprehensive Molecular Analysis Identifies Driver Mutations in Metastases of Sporadic Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumours of the Small Intestine
Introduction: Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumours (SI-NETs) represent a heterogenous group of tumours. The molecular mechanisms which contribute to progression of SI-NETs are poorly elucidated. They are considered to be molecularly distinct from neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs), which share oncogenic pathways with adenocarcinomas.
