Zebrafish as a New In Vivo Model to Study Angiogenesis in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) Abstract #1127

Introduction: Zebrafish is a powerful model to study human diseases, including cancer.
Aim(s): A novel in vivo angiogenesis assay based on the injection of human NET cell lines (TT, MZ-CRC1, DMS79 and PC3) and primary NET cell cultures has been developed in Tg(fli1:EGFP)y1 zebrafish embryos, in which the fluorescent protein EGFP is expressed in the vascular tree.
Materials and methods: NET cells were stained with red fluorescent dye and injected in the proximity of the developing sub intestinal vessel (SIV) plexus in Tg(fli1:EGFP)y1 embryos. The vasoproliferative response has been detected by both fluorescence microscopy and alkaline phosphatase staining at 24–48 hours post injection.

#1666 Prognosis and Incidence in Pancreatic and Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms with Emphasis on “NET G3”: An Analysis of 198 Cases from Japan
Introduction: Prognostic impact of well differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PanNENs) with a Ki67 >20%, provisionally called NET G3, needs to be validated and compared to poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). Moreover, the frequency of NET G3 among gastrointestinal NENs (GI-NENs) has so far not been studied.

#1883 Utility of a Circulating NET mRNA Gene Signature for Defining Bronchopulmonary Neuroendocrine Neoplasia and Evaluating Disease Progression
Introduction: Bronchopulmonary NETs (BPNETs) exhibit indolent to aggressive behavior. Imaging, histology and biochemistry are limited in accurately defining malignancy or progression. A blood based NET multigene test is effective in diagnosing GEP-NET progression and therapy response.
