Association between Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Biomarkers and Tumor Burden Based on Total 68Ga-DOTATATE-Avid Tumor Volume (TV) Measurements Abstract #1857

Introduction: No study has yet assessed the utility of biochemical biomarkers for evaluating NET burden using 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT.
Aim(s): To determine which markers are associated with total NET burden.
Materials and methods: A retrospective analysis of a prospective database of patients with NETs (n=232). Fasting plasma chromogranin A (CgA), neuron-specific enolase (NSE), gastrin, glucagon, vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and pancreatic polypeptide (PP), and 24-hour urinary 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5HIAA) levels were measured.

#1855 Total 68Ga-DOTATATE-Avid Tumor Volume (TV) Predicts Progression-Free Survival (PFS) and Disease-Specific Mortality (DSM) in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: Patients with NETs have divergent survival, even when having the same site of primary tumor, tumor stage and grade. 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT has emerged as a sensitive imaging modality for detecting NETs.

Introduction: Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) usually leads to stable rather than decreased lesion size in neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), therefore RECIST criteria are not used to assess early response to treatment.

#2219 24 Hour Urinary 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid Levels in Patients with Non-Functioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: The secretion of urinary 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid (u5-HIAA) by non-functioning PNETs (NF-PNET) has rarely been reported, and the data on the association between u5-HIAA levels and disease burden is scant.
