Concomitant Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms and Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Pancreas: More than just a Coincidence? Abstract #1930

Introduction: Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) are rare tumors. Up to now 14 patients with association of endocrine and exocrine neoplasms of the pancreas have been reported in literature: this association is not expected to be frequent
Aim(s): We looked for any common findings between these two entities that could help early recognition and further comprehension of this association
Materials and methods: 6 patients in our clinic suffer from IPMN and concomitant pNET. We collected data about the patients (age, sex, symptoms, medical history, blood chemistry, type of imaging) and about the lesions (classification, dimension, localization, imaging features, fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsies results and histology)

Introduction: In advanced NETs antiproliferative treatment options beyond somatostatin analogues remain limited. Temozolomide (TMZ) has shown efficacy in NETs alone or combined with other drugs.

#518 CK19 and KIT Immunostaining is a Useful Adjunct to Ki-67-Based Grading of Pancreatic NET: A Study on Matched Cytological and Histological Samples
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are rare neoplasms. Recent evidence suggests that Ki-67 staining predicts their behavior. Even more recently, a prognostic role has been proposed also for CK19 and KIT. This panel might guide patient management. CK19 and KIT have not yet been evaluated on NET on Fine needle aspiration samples (FNAs).

#386 A Prospective Evaluation of the Effects of Chronic Proton Pump Inhibitor Use on Plasma Biomarker Levels in Humans
Introduction: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are used primarily to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease. PPI-induced achlorhydria increases circulating gastrin and chromogranin A (CGA). CGA is a widely used biomarker for the diagnosis and follow-up for gut-based neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). PPI-induced increases in CGA or gastrin may falsely suggest the presence of a NET when none exists. Pancreastatin, a fragment of CGA, is also commonly used to diagnose and follow NETs.
