Specific MicroRNA Profiles are Associated with Pathological Features in Lung Carcinoids Abstract #954

Introduction: Data on miRNA expression in lung carcinoids are scarce.
Aim(s): To analyze miRNA expression profiling in lung carcinoids as compared to clinical and pathological features.
Materials and methods: Seven-hundred and twenty miRNAs were analyzed using PCR-based array method in a pilot series of 12 lung carcinoids. The significance of these miRNAs was confirmed by hierarchical clustering and the five miRNAs more significantly down-regulated in metastatic carcinoids (miR 409-5p, miR 409-3p, miR 185, miR 129-5p and miR 431-5p) were validated in 37 cases (22 TCs, four with lymph node metastasis and 15 ACs, seven with lymph node metastasis), and in 10 high grade neuroendocrine carcinomas.

#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).
