DNA Methylation Analysis of the PDX1 Gene Can Be Used for PNET Subtyping and Has a Possible Prognostic Value Abstract #2902

Introduction: Estimating prognosis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PNET) patients remains challenging. Mutation status of DAXX/ATRX/MEN1, histone modification patterns and immunohistochemistry for relevant transcription factors, including PDX1, were recently used to perform subtyping and distinguished two main types, A and B. These subtypes are linked to cell-of-origin and associated with clinical outcome.
Aim(s): In this study, we assessed whether DNA methylation of PDX1 can be used to identify the A and B subtypes and tested their prognostic value.
Materials and methods: DNA methylation analysis using Infinium MethylationEPIC and 450K arrays (Illumina) was performed on DNA from tissue of 41 PNETs. Additional methylation data of 42 PNETs and healthy alpha and beta cells were collected through public databases. Methylation values of CpGs in the PDX1 region were used to perform clustering to identify subtypes for survival analysis. Available clinicopathological and sequencing data were included in the analyses.

#1420 A New Immunohistochemistry Prognostic Score (IPS) Based on MGMT, NDRG-1 and PHLDA-3 for Recurrence and Survival in Resected Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PanNET)
Introduction: In PanNET tumors contradictory data about the prognostic role of MGMT (O6-methylguanine DNA methyltransferase) has been published. NDRG-1 (N-myc downstream-regulated gen-1) and PHLDA-3 (Pleckstrin homology-like domain family A member 3) immunohistochemistry (IHC) expressions have been evaluated in several solid malignant tumors, but their roles in PanNET remain unknown

#2139 Genome-Wide DNA Methylation Profiling of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Frequent inactivation of epigenetic regulators ATRX and DAXX in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) suggests an important role for epigenetic alterations in tumorigenesis. Few studies have been published regarding differential methylation patterns in PNETs and a thorough analysis of these alterations is currently lacking.

#2682 PAK4-NAMPT Dual Inhibition as a Novel Strategy for Therapy Resistant Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) remain an unmet clinical need. In this study, we show that targeting both nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) and p21-activated kinase 4 (PAK4) could become a synthetic lethal strategy for PNET.

#2683 Clinicopathological Features and Prognostic Analysis of 227 Cases with Well-Differentiated Gastric Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms (g-NENs) are a group of rare tumors with a strong heterogeneity, subdivided as well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NETs, type 1-3 g-NETs) and poorly-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma(NECs). WHO classification(2019) for digestive system tumours has carried out a new classification and grading criteria for NENs of the gastrointestinal tract recently, there is very few relevant clinical data based on this new classification, especially for gastric NETs(g-NETs).
