CK19 Expression in A?TH-Producing Extrapituitary Neuroendocrine Neoplasms is a Negative Prognostic Factor Abstract #417

Introduction: Defining localization and potential ?CTH-producing extrapituitary neuroendocrine neoplasms (ACTH-epNEN) is important for clinical practice.
Aim(s): To assess CK19 expression in ACTH-epNEN of different localization.
Materials and methods: CK19 (clone RCK108) and Ki-67 (clone MIB-1) expression were evaluated immunohistochemically (IHC) in 37 ACTH-epNEN specimens: 19 lung (L-NEN) (51.3%); eight thymus (T-NEN) and two mediastinal (M-NEN) (27.2%); six gastrointestinal (GI): three pancreatic (Pn-NEN), one ampulla Vater's (AV-NEN), one appendical (A-NEN), one rectal (R-NEN) (16.2%); two medullary thyroid carcinomas (MTC) (5.4%); in 13 men and 25 women, at mean age 42.1 (16-67 yrs).

#171 Transcription Factor Signature in Pancreatic and Duodenal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: We recently identified ISL1 as a marker for pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (P-NENs). ISL1 as well as PDX1, CDX2 and NGN3 are transcription factors (TF) involved in pancreato-duodenal development.

#827 Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Pancreas Grade 2 with Ki-67 Index More Than 5% and with Expression Cytokeratin 19 are the Risk Group of Rapid Progression
Introduction: Cytokeratin 19 (CK19) is the marker of pluripotent cells of the epithelium of the pancreatic ducts, which is not detected in differentiated endocrine cells. Our experience shows that many patients with neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas (pNET) G2 have a rapid progression of the disease a few years after diagnosis, and metastases are found most commonly in the liver.

#833 The Chemokine Receptor CXCR4 – Differential Expression in Bronchopulmonary Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: The CXCR4 is a plasma membrane chemokine receptor, which is involved in organogenesis, hematopoiesis and inflammation. Additionally, an over-expression is described for many neoplastic tissues. Here, an involvement in tumor progression, metastasis, adaptation to hypoxia and in stem cell survival is postulated.
