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%.

#110 Slug represents an important regulator of E-cadherin expression in neuroendocrine tumor cells of the pancreas
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas form an inhomogenous group of epithelial neoplasms. They differ from other types of pancreatic cancers by showing an extended survival of patients, which is due to a mostly slow proliferation rate of the tumor. However, some of these neuroendocrine tumors are characterized by an early onset of metastases, which cannot be predicted by any available method. The epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) represents a central part of cell migration and metastasis. During EMT, cells loosen their cellular contacts, leave the tissue, and become migrating single cells. One of the integral compounds of cell adhesion represents the E-cadherin adhesion module, which contains mostly E-cadherin and several catenins. A loss of this adhesion module is associated with tumor progression, migration and metastasis in many types of cancer.
