Midkine is a New Novel Serum Biomarker in Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors (SI-NETs). Abstract #1278

Introduction: SI-NETs are often diagnosed late, which limits curative treatment options.
Aim(s): Our aim was to identify new novel biomarkers in SI-NETs, in order to enable early diagnosis, prognostication and monitoring of treatment response.
Materials and methods: Ninety-two biomarkers were screened in blood serum from 67 patients with SI-NETs and 23 age-matched healthy controls using multiplex proximity ligation assay (PLA). Confirmation of findings by multiplex PLA was performed by immunohistochemistry (IHC) on tumors, followed by ELISA assays in blood serum.

#193 Paraneoplastic Antigen Ma2 Autoantibodies as Specific Blood Biomarkers for Detection of Early Recurrence of Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) are rare fatal cancers. Many patients develop metastatis before diagnosis. There is no available curative treatment for patients with metastasis.

#820 ACTG2 Inhibits Growth and Is Epigenetically Repressed in Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) originate from the enterochromaffin cells in the ileum. Actin gamma smooth muscle 2 (ACTG2) is downregulated in lymph node metastases from SI-NETs. ACTG2 and microRNA-145 (miR-145) are aberrantly expressed in other cancers and ACTG2 can be induced by miRNA-145.
