Correlation Between Genomic Imbalances, Cell Proliferation and Tumor Size in Sporadic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #967

Introduction: The pathogenesis of sporadic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET) is poorly understood.
Aim(s): To increase knowledge about the genetic mechanisms underlying sporadic pNET.
Materials and methods: Genome-wide screening of 16 surgical specimens from 15 patients with sporadic pNET was performed, combining G-band karyotyping and high resolution comparative genomic hybridization (HR-CGH).

#646 Immunohistochemical (IHC) and Cytogenetic Approach for Improving Diagnosis and Therapy of Ewing Sarcoma (ES)/pPNET Arising in the Ileocecal Region
Introduction: ES/pPNET primary to the ileocecal region (IpPNET) have been rarely reported on and show close similarities in histology and clinical presentation with small round blue cell tumors. The EWS gene is fused to four members of the ETS family.

#856 DAXX and ATRX Loss Defines Chromosomal Instability and Poor Outcome in Pancreatic NET
Introduction: Chromosomal Instability (CIN) has been reported in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) with poor outcome. However, no specific genetic background has been associated with CIN. Whole exome sequencing revealed mutations in DAXX (Death domain associated protein gene) and ATRX (ATR-X gene) in 40% of pNETs. DAXX and ATRX mutations in pNETs are associated with Alternative Lengthening of Telomeres (ALT) activation.
