Assessment of the Serum Levels of the Soluble Vascular Cellular Adhesion Molecule-1 (sVCAM-1) in Patients with Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Abstract #2256

Introduction: Tumor growth and the ability to metastasize is a multistage process involving interactions between cancer cells and the vascular endothelium. These interactions have been reported to be mediated by various molecules including sVCAM-1. We have previously shown elevated serum concentration of sVCAM-1 in 82 neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) compared to controls. Here, we present results of the extension of the previous study.
Aim(s): To assess serum concentration of sVCAM-1 in extended cohort of NEN stratified into sub-groups based upon clinicopathological characteristics (TNM stage, tumor grade).
Materials and methods: The study group comprised 151 patients with NEN (PNEN 18%, SBNEN 15%, rectal NEN 16%, gastric NEN 9%, lung NEN 18%, CUP 13%, other 11%), and 28 sex and age-matched healthy controls. NEN at TNM stage I comprised 38%, stage II: 5%, stage III: 5%, stage IV: 52%. 61% of NEN were G1, G2: 21%, and G3: 18%.

Introduction: Liver metastasis (LM) are very frequent (65-95%) and represent a crucial prognostic factor in patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (GEP NENs). The paucity of relevant experimental models has limited the understanding of the pathophysiology of NENs and the development of efficient therapeutic strategies
