Cancer-Associated-Fibroblasts in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A Role in Cancer Progression Abstract #905

Introduction: Cancer-associated-fibroblasts (CAFs) secrete soluble factors that enhance tumor growth and invasion. Neuroendocrine tumor (NET) cells recruit fibroblasts within the lesional sites.
Aim(s): CAFs affect NET cells transcriptional profile thus postulating their hyperactive cross-talk with stroma.
Materials and methods: We established cultures of CAFs from enterochromaffin cell (ECL) hyperplasia, G1, G2, G3 NETs. Fibroblasts from perilesional tissue of NETs and WI-38 were used for control. Adherent cells were immunostained for CD34, CD45, CD56, CD73, CD90 and CD105. H720, H727, H835, BON1, CM and QGP1 NET cells were cultured with CAF conditioned medium (CM); their viability was assessed by MTS test while their proliferation by CFSE in the presence or not of inserts and by flow-cytometry.

#1181 Significance of Ectopic Lymph Node-Like Structures in Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Small Bowel
Introduction: The formation of extranodal tertiary lymphoid follicles and lymphoid cell aggregates has been described in nonmalignant conditions including autoimmune diseases and chronic inflammation as well as in cancer. Tumor-induced lymph node-like structures (LLS) participate in the host’s antitumor immune response by driving intratumoral immune cell priming

Introduction: Bone metastases have been described in up to 32% of NET patients and are associated with a worse clinical outcome. Overexpression of CXCR4 in primary tumors appears predictive of skeletal involvement.

#51 Epidemiology of the neuroendocrine tumors diagnosed in Cardarelli Hospital: a retrospective single-institution analysis of 274 cases
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are considered rare tumors and are characterized by their ability to produce peptides that cause typical hormonal syndromes. Neuroendocrine tumors consist of a wide spectrum of malignancies with different histology that can arise from distributed neuroendocrine cells in the body. Although these tumors are frequently indolent, they can be aggressive and resistant to therapy. Its incidence in the U.S.A has been rising in the last three decades (Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registry). NETs are more common than generally believed.
