Angiogenetic Markers as Prognostic Predictors in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Abstract #3043

Introduction: Neoangiogenesis is crucial for NEN development and metastatization.
Aim(s): To evaluate the role of angiogenetic markers in NEN aggressiveness and prognosis.
Materials and methods: We performed a prospective observational study including 40 patients (pts) with proven NENs and 32 healthy controls (Ctrl) well matched for age, sex, BMI, smoking and comorbidities. Pro-angiogenic factors were measured in serum by ELISA method (soluble sTIE2 and ANG2) and on tissue sections in 10 pts by immunohistochemistry (ANG2, TIE2 and prokineticin peptides-PROKs). Groups were compared using Mann-Witney test.

#2970 Characteristics, Treatments and Inflammatory Biomarkers in Patients (pts) with G3 Gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NENs)
Introduction: Well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors G3 (NETsG3) pts have a different biological behavior compared to those with neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). Sensitivity to platinum depends on Ki67 and there is no standard second line (2L). Neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are predictive factors of cancer survival, but with limited evidence in NENs.

#2707 Investigating the Crosstalk between MEN1, p53 and Notch Reveals Biomarkers of Formation of Primary Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) comprise a heterogeneous group of endocrine tumors. Previous studies showed that mutations of p53 are extremely rare; whereas genetic changes of MEN1 frequently occur and are correlated with poor prognosis in PNET. Still, their roles in tumorigenesis remain elusive.

#2844 Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumor with Chromogranin Expression Is Associated with Aggressive Clinical Behavior and Worse Prognosis
Introduction: Although rectal neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) with L-cell phenotype and small tumor size generally had better clinical behavior, the new 2019 WHO classification classified all rectal NETs are malignant without considering L-cell phenotype and small tumor size. Therefore, identifying biomarkers of rectal NETs is important to stratify the clinical behavior of rectal NETs.
