Tumour-Infiltrating Neutrophils Predict Poor Survival of Non-Functional Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumour Patients after Curative Resection Abstract #2684

Introduction: Non-functional pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (NF-PanNETs) are steadily increasing in prevalence and present several clinical challenges.
Aim(s): This study retrospectively characterised the immune infiltrating profile in NF-PanNETs.
Materials and methods: Intratumoural, peritumoural stroma, and peritumoural normal pancreatic tissues from 109 NF-PanNET patients were evaluated by immunohistochemistry for nine immune cell infiltration: tumour-infiltrating neutrophils (TINs), CD11c+ dendrite cells, anti-NCR1+ NK cells, tumour-associated macrophages (TAMs), CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, CD45RO+ memory T cells, FOXP3+ regulatory T cells (Tregs) and CD20+ B cells.

#1273 Tissue Prognostic Markers in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (pNETs) are a rare, heterogeneous class of neoplasms, with a rising incidence. Prognosis is variable with 5-year survival as low as 16% in inoperable tumours.

#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.

#2692 Development of Ex-Vivo Models of Metastatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: The lack of relevant in-vivo and in-vitro models has precluded investigations of the pathophysiology of metastatic NENs. Organotypic tumour slices retain the complexity of tumours in-vivo without extensive manipulation of the tissue.
