Incidental Diagnosis as Prognostic Factor in Different Tumor-Stages of Non-Functioning Pancreatic Endocrine Tumors Abstract #650

Introduction: Although incidental diagnosis of non-functioning pancreatic endocrine tumors (NF-pNETs) is not an assurance of benign behavior, incidental NF-pNETs are associated with improved survival after resection.
Aim(s): To analyze the outcomes of incidentally discovered and symptomatic NF-pNETs stratified by tumor stage.
Materials and methods: All consecutive patients with symptomatic/incidental NF-PETs observed between 1990 and 2009 were analyzed considering different tumor stages.

#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.

#2729 Survival of Patients with Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NETs) in a Single Institute in North Africa over the Last 16 Years
Introduction: Because of the low incidence, nonspecific symptoms at presentation, lack of awareness, and non-uniform classifications, gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) remains a poorly understood disease, and delayed diagnosis is common among patients with GEP-NETs.
