Analysis of Somatostatin Receptors Expression in Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #993

Introduction: Clinical studies have suggested anti-tumor efficacy of somatostatin analog (SSA) in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).
Aim(s): We investigated the prognostic significance of expression of somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) in patients with NETs generally, and in a subset of patients treated with SSA.
Materials and methods: We evaluated immunohistochemical expression of SSTR1, 2, 3 and 5 in a cohort of archival NETs. We correlated expression levels with clinical outcomes after adjusting for other clinical prognostic variables.

Introduction: In the RADIANT-4 study, everolimus (EVE) reduced the risk of disease progression or death by 52% vs placebo (PBO; P<0.00001) in patients (pts) with advanced, well-differentiated, progressive, nonfunctional NET of lung/GI tract.

#1879 A Hybrid Clinical Molecular Nomogram Accurately Predicts Survival in PRRT Treated GEP-NETs
Introduction: Clinical assessment has limited prognostic ability. Mathematical tools –nomograms- that incorporate multiple parameters are more effective. Novel transcriptomic data has added value in defining NET biology in tissue and blood. A blood multigene expression analysis test is effective as a molecular prognostic marker for PFS.
