Treatment of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Data from a Prospective Observational Multicenter Study Abstract #254

Introduction: Information on treatment of pancreatic neurendocrine neoplasms (PNN) comes mostly from small, retrospective studies on highly selected patients.
Aim(s): To analyze the treatment of patients with PNN in a prospective, multicenter series of patients.
Materials and methods: Newly-diagnosed, histologically proven PNN observed from 2004 to 2007 in 24 Italian Centres were included in a specific dataset; each case was followed-up for a minimum of two years.

#2682 PAK4-NAMPT Dual Inhibition as a Novel Strategy for Therapy Resistant Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
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.

#2685 Apatinib Inhibits Tumor Growth and Angiogenesis in PNET Models
Introduction: Angiogenesis has a pivotal role in the growth and metastasis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). Apatinib inhibits angiogenesis as a highly selective KDR inhibitor and has been used to treat advanced gastric cancer and malignancies in clinical settings. However, the efficacy of apatinib in PNETs remains unclear.
