pNET G3 Tumor Stabilization Achieved by an Individualized Molecular Therapy Based on Tumor Genome Sequencing Results Abstract #2239

Introduction: High-grade pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (pNENs) constitute a heterogeneous group of malignant neoplasms, encompassing neuroendocrine tumors (NET) G3 and carcinomas (NEC). Due to poor data on NET G3 tumors no standard therapy in metastatic disease could be established so far. Tumor genome sequencing might help to better profile NET G3 tumors and could provide novel opportunities for individualized and thereby successful patient specific treatments.

#62 Genome-wide DNA methylation profiling of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors identifies distinct methylation profiles and differentially methylated gene promoter regions associated with low, medium and high grade tumors
Introduction: Integration of genetics and epigenetics has emerged as a powerful approach to studying cellular differentiation (Mikkelsen et al, 2009) and tumorigenesis (Shen et al, 2007). The study of DNA methylation is of particular importance in cancer, as causal involvement has been demonstrated and it is the most stable of all epigenetic modifications, making it a desirable marker for both early detection and treatment of tumors. Hypermethylation of CpG sites in gene promoter regions leads to decreased gene expression; if such a gene is a tumor suppressor, this leads to carcinogenesis. To date, there have been no studies of genome-wide DNA methylation profiling of NETs. This study sets out to determine the DNA methylation profiles of low, intermediate and high grade pancreatic NET liver metastases with the intention of identifying dysregulated biological pathways in the development of these tumors. A protocol for the analysis formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue (FFPE) has also been developed in order to study these tumors in significant numbers following this pilot study.

#290 Peptide Receptor Radiotherapy as a Potential Tool of Neoadjuvant Therapy in Patients with Inoperable Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: Neoadjuvant treatment is used as pre-surgical therapy in different cancers to decrease tumor size. PRRT can be a useful tool in neoadjuvant treatment of patients with well-differentiated NETs.

#557 The Role of Chemotherapy in the Management of Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NETs): The Large Experience of the Spanish National Tumor Registry (RGETNE)
Introduction: GEPNETs represent a heterogenous family of tumors of challenging clinical management. Treatment of advanced disease is evolving, including some recent relevant achievements with novel targeted agents. How to best integrate these new agents with conventional chemotherapy(CT) is still a matter of debate.

#722 Isolation and Whole Genome Amplification of Single Circulating Tumor Cells in Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Pilot Study
Introduction: We have previously demonstrated that Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) can be detected in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET) and that their presence is prognostic. Downstream analysis of CTCs provides an opportunity to explore their potential as biomarker for targeted therapy. Here we present initial data which demonstrates that molecular profiling can be successfully performed on single CTCs from patients with NETs
