Incidental Pathological Finding of Pancreatic Non-Functioning Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #847

Introduction: Little is known about the incidental finding of non-functioning NETs (Neuroendocrine Tumors) during pancreatic surgery performed for other reasons or during pathological examination of the surgical sample.
Aim(s): To evaluate histology and staging of NETs, expression of NE markers, prognosis and main associated pancreatic disease.
Materials and methods: From 1997 to 2013, 157 non-functioning NETs observed in our Center. Sixteen incidental pathological findings in patients operated for other pancreatic diseases (average 64 years, range 44-85 yrs; 10 M/6 F).

#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.

#2685 Apatinib Inhibits Tumor Growth and Angiogenesis in PNET Models
Introduction: Angiogenesis has a pivotal role in the growth and metastasis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). Apatinib inhibits angiogenesis as a highly selective KDR inhibitor and has been used to treat advanced gastric cancer and malignancies in clinical settings. However, the efficacy of apatinib in PNETs remains unclear.
