BRAF-V600E Driven Mutations in Grade 3 Neuroendocrine Carcinomas of Colon Origin: Results from Genomic/Epigenomic Profilings and Patient-Derived Mouse Model Abstract #2180

Introduction: NECs of colon origin are orphan and highly aggressive neoplasms with limited molecular knowledge.
Aim(s): To describe the DNA genomic and epigenomic aberrations of colon NECs, generate a patient-derived xenograft (PDX) model to perform translational experiments and translate the results to the clinical setting.
Materials and methods: DNA alterations were defined by VHIOCard (genotyping up to 700 mutations in 70 cancer-related genes). Microsatellite instability (MSI) was analyzed by immunohistochemistry (IHC) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Epigenetic changes were studied by DNA methylation analyses using microarray strategy (Illumina®) and compared with colon adenocarcinomas (ADK). We created a BRAFV600E mutated PDX of colon NEC that was treated with cisplatin-etoposide, cetuximab, and the BRAF inhibitor LGX818.

#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.

#2855 Whole Exome Sequencing Reveals the Monoclonal Origin of Gastric Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinomas
Introduction: Gastric mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinomas (g-MANECs) are rare neoplasms consisting of adenocarcinoma and neuroendocrine neoplastic components. G-MANECs show more malignant characteristics than gastric adenocarcinomas, while molecular mechanisms underlying the co-existence of the two components remains unknown.
