Blood Gene Transcript Analysis Predicts 68Ga- SSA-PET/CT Imaging in Neuroendocrine Tumors and Defines Disease Status Abstract #1190

Introduction: Limitations of biomarkers and imaging are a concern in the identification of NET status and therapy response.
Aim(s): To identify if circulating molecular markers and imaging provided added value, we assessed the utility of 68Ga-SSA-PET, Ki-67, CgA, and circulating NET transcripts (NETest).
Materials and methods: In two independent datasets (1, pre-PRRT, n=27; 2, follow up, n=22) we evaluated SUVmax, Ki-67, CgA and NETest (regression analyses, generalized linear modeling, ROC analyses).

#1228 Measurement of Blood Gene Transcripts Defines PRRT Therapeutic Efficacy
Introduction: PRRT is an effective therapy for NETs since the majority over-express SSRs. Typically, well or moderately differentiated NETs (G1/G2) are treated. Imaging and CgA are used to evaluate response but both RECIST criteria and CgA have limitations.

#1485 Validation of a Blood Neuroendocrine Tumor Gene Signature, the NETest, in a Netherlands NET Cohort
Introduction: The CgA has limitations as a monoanalyte biomarker. The introduction of a PCR-based multi-analyte analysis of 51 genes (NETest) has been proposed as more accurate.
