The Role of Plasma Chromogranin A as Assessment of Treatment Response in Grade 1-3 Non-Functioning Gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #832

Introduction: Chromogranin A (CgA) is considered to be of value not only in diagnosis but also in monitoring the disease response to treatment. However, only a few studies have been published on this issue.
Aim(s): We investigated to evaluate whether biochemical response using plasma CgA level is in reliable concordance with the clinical response in grade 1-3 nonfunctiong gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) irrespective of chemotherapeutic agents.
Materials and methods: A total of 27 cases in 18 patients were enrolled in this study between March 2011 and September 2013. Twenty-seven cases were evaluated clinically and radiologically while serial CgA tests were also estimated during treatment.

Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) remain an unmet clinical need. In this study, we show that targeting both nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) and p21-activated kinase 4 (PAK4) could become a synthetic lethal strategy for PNET.

#2727 Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours versus Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma: Presentation in Tunisian Patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are divided into two groups on the basis of clinical behaviour, histology, and proliferation rate: well differentiated (low grade to intermediate grade) neuroendocrine tumors and poorly differentiated (high grade) neuroendocrine carcinoma.
