Genes Involved in Angiogenesis and mTOR Are Frequently Found Mutated in Asian Patients with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors. Abstract #1315

Introduction: There are limited data and inconsistent findings of genetic alteration in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET).
Aim(s): We sequenced genes known to be associated with pNET and analyzed their impact on clinical outcomes in a Taiwanese cohort.
Materials and methods: Tissue samples from 40 Taiwanese patients with sporadic pNETs were sequenced using a customized sequencing panel that analyzed 43 genes known to be potentially associated with pNET. Genetic mutations and clinical outcomes were analyzed for potential association.
