B-Lymphocyte Stimulator in Neuroendocrine Tumors: Correlation with Disease Behavior Abstract #404

Introduction: B-Lymphocyte Stimulator (BLyS) was recently involved in the regulation of malignant cell survival cancers.
Aim(s): To test BLyS as a new serological marker in the follow-up of patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET).
Materials and methods: Eighty-one consecutive patients with NET and 56 sex-matched controls enrolled in the study. Patients were classified in two subgroups according to clinical course: evidence of persistent but stable disease or in remission (n=45) and patients with evidence of recurrent disease (n=36). BLyS and Chromogranin A (CgA) serum levels were analyzed by ELISA.

#2870 When It Comes to the Diagnostic of Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NEN), Not All Markers and Clones Were Made Equal. Assessment of 5 Makers in 466 NEN from 10 Anatomical Sites
Introduction: Histological diagnostic of neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) relies on morphological criteria and expression of several neuroendocrine marker assessed by immunohistochemistry. Systematic large evaluation of classical (chromogranin A (chrA), synaptophysin (Syn), CD56) and emerging (chromogranin B (chrB), INSM1) markers are lacking.

#2879 Lung Neuroendocrine Tumors: Experience of Medical Oncology Department of Hospital 1st November 1954 Oran
Introduction: Lung neuroendocrine tumors account for 25% of all neuroendocrine tumors. It is a heterogeneous group that meets morphological criteria; immunohistochemical and molecular; defining 4 groups: Typical and atypical carcinoid tumors, neuroendocrine carcinomas with large cell and small cells. Carcinoid syndrome is rare in these tumors and the treatment is based on surgery for localized forms and multimodal treatment for metastatic forms.

#2908 Re-Cellularised Human Pancreas 3D Scaffolds as a Novel Model for Biomarker Discovery in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (pNETs)
Introduction: The lack of preclinical models of pNETs has challenged identification of tissue specific biomarkers of disease. Culturing cancer cells in their native tissue enables the close study of cell-ECM interaction and tissue remodelling. The biological products of such interactions can form a basis for discovery of novel biomarkers of the disease, and were previously linked with a range of inflammatory and malignant conditions.

#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.
