Mechanisms of Main Pancreatic Duct Dilatation in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PanNETs): Radiopathologic Correlation Abstract #2261

Introduction: Main pancreatic duct (MPD) dilatation, a frequent observation in cases with adenocarcinoma can also be observed in patients with PanNET.
Aim(s): Describe the patho-radiological aspects of PanNET with MPD dilatation.
Materials and methods: From 2006 to 2016 all consecutive patients with proven PanNET and MPD dilatation seen on pre-operative MRI were included. MR images were independently reviewed by two radiologists. Histopathologic analysis included fibrosis quantification, microvessel density [MVD], hypoxia markers, and serotonin expression.

#2926 O-Positive Blood Group Is Associated with Prolonged Recurrence-Free Survival Following Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (PanNET) Curative-Intent Surgical Resection
Introduction: The ABO blood group may influence the development and progression of cancer. In particular, the prognosis of pancreatic adenocarcinoma is better in patients with blood group O. This has not been extensively explored in PanNET.

#3062 The Splicing Factor CELF4 Is Dysregulated in Neuroendocrine Tumors, Where It Can Enhance Aggressiveness Features
Introduction: There is increasing evidence that alterations in alternative splicing are linked to key tumor features in different cancers. Besides mutations, dysregulation of the splicing machinery would represent the main underlying cause for these alterations. Indeed, splicing dysregulation is emerging as a novel, transversal cancer hallmark, due to its association with multiple dysfunctions in tumor cells.
