C-Reactive Protein As a New Prognostic Factor for Overall Survival in Patients with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasia Abstract #1313

Introduction: For many cancer entities, inflammation has been shown to play an important role in pathogenesis and progression.
Aim(s): To investigate the association between preoperative plasma levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) and overall survival (OS) in patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasia (pNEN).
Materials and methods: A prospective database of patients with pNENs was retrospectively analysed with focus on initial preoperative CRP blood levels (<5 mg/l vs ≥5 mg/l). Among 149 patients with sporadic pNEN, Kaplan-Meier method and Cox regression were used to evaluate the relationship between CRP and clinical outcome, defining overall survival as primary endpoint. Possible association between CRP-levels and the other prognostic factors was investigated via crosstabulation and Pearson-χ2-test.

Introduction: CHD is a life threatening complication of carcinoid syndrome. Its exact pathophysiology is uncertain but several studies have identified serotonin as a potential key mediator. The amount of serotonin production can be assessed by the dosage of its metabolite 5-HIAA in urine or plasma.
