Measurement in Blood of a Circulating NET mRNA Gene to Predict Surgical Efficacy Abstract #1878

Introduction: Surgery is the only curative treatment for GEP-NETs, but identifying post-surgery residual disease is difficult and often delayed.
Aim(s): Examine whether a blood multianalyte neuroendocrine gene transcript assay defines the completeness of surgical resection and identifies residual disease.
Materials and methods: GEP-NETs (n=48) were evaluated. Group I (retrospective: n=33); Group II (prospective: n=15). Blood samples were obtained before and 1 month after surgery. Disease status was evaluated at 6 months (CT/MRI;68Ga DOTA- PET/CT, 99mTc TOC SPECT/CT). CgA levels were the comparator.

#897 A Molecular Multi-Transcript Gene Blood Signature Significantly Outperforms Chromogranin A (CgA) in the Detection of Gut Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: A key issue in NET management is the need for a specific and sensitive biomarker to detect disease and assess treatment. CgA is widely utilized but has limitations.

#1485 Validation of a Blood Neuroendocrine Tumor Gene Signature, the NETest, in a Netherlands NET Cohort
Introduction: The CgA has limitations as a monoanalyte biomarker. The introduction of a PCR-based multi-analyte analysis of 51 genes (NETest) has been proposed as more accurate.

#1879 A Hybrid Clinical Molecular Nomogram Accurately Predicts Survival in PRRT Treated GEP-NETs
Introduction: Clinical assessment has limited prognostic ability. Mathematical tools –nomograms- that incorporate multiple parameters are more effective. Novel transcriptomic data has added value in defining NET biology in tissue and blood. A blood multigene expression analysis test is effective as a molecular prognostic marker for PFS.

#1881 A Gene Expression-Based Nomogram Predicts Progression Free Survival in Small Bowel NETs
Introduction: Nomograms are predictive tools that help prognosticate. A survival nomogram has been validated for small bowel NETs. A circulating NET specific 51gene signature – the NETest – has efficacy (~95%) as a predictor of progression free survival (PFS).
