Expression of m-TOR Pathway Components in Gastric Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A Pilot Study Abstract #1307

Introduction: The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway plays a key role in the regulation of cell proliferation, protein synthesis and neuroendocrine tumor growth.
Aim(s): This study aimed to assess the activation of the mTOR pathway in the different types of gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms (gNENs) and to correlate expression with clinicopathological variables and prognosis.
Materials and methods: Immunohistochemistry (IHC) was performed to assess the expression of phosphorylated mTOR (p-mTOR) and its downstream target, the eukaryotic initiation factor 4E-binding protein 1 (4EBP1) in 34 surgically resected gNENs.

#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).

#2821 Nucleophosmin Expression and Relocation in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Preliminary Data
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms with unpredictable clinical course and biological behavior. Nucleophosmin (NPM) is an important multifunctional protein mainly located in the nucleolus. NPM has been reported to be overexpressed in many types of human cancer, activating tumor development and progression. However, the role of NPM in PanNETs is unknown.
