Management of Metastatic Nonfunctional Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Abstract #750

Introduction: Nonfunctional NETs themselves present in generally two ways, either with symptoms caused by the tumor compression of other organs, or found by imaging test performed for other reasons.
Aim(s): To present treatment tactics in case of metastatic nonfunctional pNETS.
Materials and methods: A 30-year-old female noticed intensive pain in the upper abdomen after a delivery in November 2006. A pancreatic lesion occupying the whole gland, multiple liver metastases and enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes were revealed by CT. The tumor biopsy showed it to be a somatostatin-producing NET with Ki-67 1-2%. Biotherapy with somatostatin and interferon was administered. Six months later, interferon treatment was stopped because of its side effects. In August 2008, the patient got worse because of migrating joint pain. Examinations showed bone and lung metastases, and chemotherapy with streptozotocin and zoledronic acid were prescribed.

#16 Endoglin as indicator of metastatic neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas are rare, highly vascularized tumors. Endoglin, a Transforming Growth Factor-β co-receptor, is a marker for angiogenic endothelial cells. Angiogenesis is required for tumor progression and the development of metastases. Recently, endoglin expression was found to be a prognostic marker in pancreatic carcinomas. However, the role of endoglin in neuroendocrine pancreatic tumors has so far not been studied.

#61 Multiple tumors in patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours: morphological and immunohistochemical characteristics
Introduction: Pancreatic islet cell tumors occur in 80% of patients with MEN 1. Tumors are often multicentric. They often produce multiple peptides and biogenic amines.

#110 Slug represents an important regulator of E-cadherin expression in neuroendocrine tumor cells of the pancreas
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas form an inhomogenous group of epithelial neoplasms. They differ from other types of pancreatic cancers by showing an extended survival of patients, which is due to a mostly slow proliferation rate of the tumor. However, some of these neuroendocrine tumors are characterized by an early onset of metastases, which cannot be predicted by any available method. The epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) represents a central part of cell migration and metastasis. During EMT, cells loosen their cellular contacts, leave the tissue, and become migrating single cells. One of the integral compounds of cell adhesion represents the E-cadherin adhesion module, which contains mostly E-cadherin and several catenins. A loss of this adhesion module is associated with tumor progression, migration and metastasis in many types of cancer.

#223 Management of Patients with Multiple Pancreatic Tumors
Introduction: MEN-1 syndrome is a rather rare disease. It is very complicated to manage this group of patients because of the multiple pancreatic lesions and high frequency of nesidioblastosis.
