The PanNENomics Project: A Call for an International Collaborative Effort Built on the Success of the LungNENomics Project Abstract #2992

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).
Aim(s): To perform a comprehensive molecular characterization of neuroendocrine tumors of all body sites.
Materials and methods: The Rare Cancers Genomics initiative (RCG, www.rarecancersgenomics.com) takes advantage of the expertise provided by a multidisciplinary team, and by means of state-of-the-art computational analyses (including machine learning and AI) as well as exceptional bio-repositories, to generate, analyze and interpret, genome, transcriptome and epigenome data on rare cancers, particularly neuroendocrine tumors.

#2879 Lung Neuroendocrine Tumors: Experience of Medical Oncology Department of Hospital 1st November 1954 Oran
Introduction: Lung neuroendocrine tumors account for 25% of all neuroendocrine tumors. It is a heterogeneous group that meets morphological criteria; immunohistochemical and molecular; defining 4 groups: Typical and atypical carcinoid tumors, neuroendocrine carcinomas with large cell and small cells. Carcinoid syndrome is rare in these tumors and the treatment is based on surgery for localized forms and multimodal treatment for metastatic forms.

#3056 Multi-Omic Characterization and Evolution of Neuroendocrine Neoplasm Organoids
Introduction: Molecular characterizations of neuroendocrine neoplasm (NENs) have unveiled candidate alterations associated with aggressiveness and suggested that the molecular link between neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) might be subtler than initially thought. For example, we have recently unveiled a new entity of pulmonary carcinoids (supra-carcinoids) with carcinoid-like morphology yet the molecular and clinical features of large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC). Testing hypotheses to explain aggressiveness and the possibility of progression or transition from NET to NEC through the accumulation of genetic anomalies requires in vitro and in vivo experimental models.

#2986 Characterization of 142 Human Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: ATRX and DAXX Correlation with Clinical-Pathological Data
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) are rare and heterogeneous neoplasms with a 10-year survival rate less than 30%. Up to 43% of them are driven by inactivating mutations in ATRX or DAXX. These are important players at chromatin remodeling, that when mutated prone cancer cells to initiate the alternative lengthening of telomeres (ALT). ALT phenotype correlates with in situ loss of expression of the proteins ATRX or DAXX and can be corroborated by telomere-FISH.
