Change of Lactate Transporter (MCT4) Expression in Pancreatic Microadenomas and Stages of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #2906

Introduction: Metabolic changes are observed in early and late stages of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PanNET) in mouse models. In human PanNET, RNA-expression analysis showed changes in glucose metabolism in more aggressive PanNET.
Aim(s): We investigated the expression of the lactate transporter Monocarboxylate Transporter 4 (MCT4) in pancreatic microadenomas, neuroendocrine tumors of different stages and carcinomas (NEC) as a potential metabolic surrogate marker for glucose usage.
Materials and methods: We assessed the expression of MCT4 by immunohistochemistry in 81 pancreatic microadenomas from seven MEN1 patients and one VHL patient as well as 106 sporadic PanNET. Expression levels were correlated with clinico-pathological features.

#2821 Nucleophosmin Expression and Relocation in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Preliminary Data
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms with unpredictable clinical course and biological behavior. Nucleophosmin (NPM) is an important multifunctional protein mainly located in the nucleolus. NPM has been reported to be overexpressed in many types of human cancer, activating tumor development and progression. However, the role of NPM in PanNETs is unknown.

#898 Evaluation of Tumor Response to Targeted Therapies in Precision-Cut Slices of Human Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Patients with PNET might benefit from new therapeutic approaches acting on the mTOR signaling pathway. Culture of precision-cut slices could allow testing these molecules in human tumors, allowing personalized treatments.

#1689 The Prognostic Value of the Expression of Cytokeratin 7 and 19 in Lungs and Pancreas Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: The expression of cytokeratins (CK) 7,19 rarely occurs in the low grade neuroendocrine tumors (NET) of lung and pancreas. It is known that part of the low grade typical (TC) and atypical (ATС) carcinoids of lung and pancreas (pNET-G1,G2) can progress quickly and to metastasize. It is important to distinguish NET with a less differentiated cells immunophentype.

#2999 Aberrant Tryptophan Metabolism in Stromal Cells Is Associated with Mesenteric Fibrosis in Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Increased levels of serotonin secretion are associated with mesenteric fibrosis (MF) in small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs). However, only a proportion of patients with increased serotonin production will develop mesenteric fibrosis.
