Significance of Preoperative FDG-PET/CT Scan in Patients with Pulmonary Carcinoid Tumours Abstract #1518

Introduction: FDG uptake on PET/CT scan has been shown to be of prognostic significance in patients (pts) with metastatic neuroendocrine tumours (NET).
Aim(s): The aim of the study was to determine the prognostic significance of preoperative FDG uptake in the primary tumour in pts who underwent radical surgical resection of their pulmonary carcinoids (PC).
Materials and methods: Pts were operated by a single surgeon and were followed-up in the Christie NHS Hospital from 2007 to 2015. Pathology diagnoses were centrally confirmed. Tumours with SUVmax>3 were considered FDG-positive(+).

#3020 Outcomes Following Surgical Management of Pulmonary Carcinoids – A Tertiary Center Experience
Introduction: Pulmonary carcinoids are a rare type of malignant lung tumour. Surgery forms the mainstay of management when operable. However, there is paucity of data on conservative management and effective follow-up strategies.

#3015 Biopsy Specimen Diagnosis in Pulmonary Carcinoids, A Shot in the Dark
Introduction: Pulmonary carcinoids (PCs) are rare well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors, which can be separated into typical carcinoid (TC) and atypical carcinoid (AC). Advised treatment for local carcinoid disease is surgical resection using lobectomy, while parenchymal saving strategies such as sub-lobar or endobronchial resection might be considered for TC. In general, pre-operative diagnosis using a (transbronchial/transthoracic) biopsy sample is performed to demonstrate malignancy. However, TC and AC classification can solely be performed on surgical resection specimens, which may challenge pre-operative treatment decisions.

#1499 Efficacy of the Combination of Capecitabine and Temozolomide in Patients with Advanced Pulmonary Carcinoid Tumours
Introduction: Limited treatment options exist for patients (pts) with advanced pulmonary carcinoids (PC). Capecitabine-temozolomide (CAPTEM) has demonstrated significant efficacy in pts with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours. However, its role in PC remains unexplored.

#3053 The Splicing Machinery Is Dysregulated in Low Grade Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Alternative splicing dysregulation is increasingly regarded as a novel cancer hallmark influencing all key tumor features. We have shown that neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) overexpress aberrantly spliced variants of neuropeptides and receptors that increase tumor malignancy. More recently, we discovered that the splicing machinery is dysregulated in pituitary and pancreatic NETs. To date, the status of this machinery in low grade pulmonary NETs is largely unknown.

#2992 The PanNENomics Project: A Call for an International Collaborative Effort Built on the Success of the LungNENomics Project
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors are rare understudied diseases at the molecular level, especially those occurring in sites outside the lung and the gastrointestinal track. This lack of knowledge has strong implications for the clinical management of these diseases (Rindi et al. Mad Pathol 2018).
