Correlation Between the 18F-FDG Uptake and Pathological Data in Well-Differentiated Digestive and Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) Abstract #1124

Introduction: The 18F-FDG uptake assessed by PET/CT is correlated to prognosis in most tumors.
Aim(s): The aim of our study was to compare the 18F-FDG uptake with tumor proliferation (Ki67) and expression of molecules related to cell metabolism [hypoxia (VHL), glucose transport (GLUT-1), cellular pH (CA9)] in well differentiated NET.
Materials and methods: This retrospective study included 22 patients. 18F-FDG uptake was assessed by the SUVmax value (Standardized Uptake Values). An immunohistochemical study was performed with Ki67, VHL, GLUT-1 and CA9 antibodies.

#41 Immunohisochemical evaluation of EMT regulators, E- and N-cadherin in neuroendocrine Tumors of the Gastro-Entero-Pancreativ system
Introduction: Local tumor invasion represents the first step of the metastatic cascade of carcinomas, and requires changes in cell adhesion and migration properties of tumor cells. This biologic process is known as epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). One key biochemical change associated with EMT is the loss of E-cadherin expression promoted by specific transcriptional repressors such as Snail, Slug, and Twist. Overexpression of EMT inducers increases other factors, such as FoxC2, although its role in EMT is poorly understood. Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) system, originated from the diffuse endocrine system, represent a heterogeneous group of tumors. Their prevalence has increased substantially over the past three decades, without substantial improvements in their clinical management, and their variable clinical course cannot be predicted by common clinicopathological parameters. Thus, new prognostic markers are urgently needed.

#87 Alterations of E-cadherin, beta-catenin and caveolin-1 expression in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP NETs) comprise a heterogeneous group of neoplasm with different histological patterns and biological behavior. Only limited information is available on immunohistochemical prognostic factors of disease. Alterations in the cell-cell adhesion system are closely associated with cell invasion and metastasis in many malignancies, including those of endocrine origin. Abnormal expression of E-cadherin and beta-catenin has been reported to play an important role in these processes. Caveolin-1 has recently been identified as a tumor metastasis modifier factor, which might increase the cell metastasis potential through the interaction with E-cadherin. However, the role of caveolin-1 in GEP NETs cell invasion remains unknown.

#138 The use of F-18-FDG-PET for patients with neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Neoplastic tissue exhibits high glucose utilization, which can be imaged by 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET). Whether FDG-PET is useful for neuroendocrine (NE) tumors, however, is questionable, due to the slow growth rate often observed in these tumors.
