ABSTRACT: Progress in the diagnostics and therapy of gastro-entero-pancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN), the published results of new randomised clinical trials, and the new guidelines issued by the European Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (ENETS) have led the Polish Network of Neuroendocrine Tumours to update the 2013 guidelines regarding management of these neoplasms. We present the general recommendations for the management of NENs, developed by experts during the Third Round Table Conference - Diagnostics and therapy of gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms: Polish recommendations in view of current European recommenda-tions, which took place in December 2016 in Żelechów near Warsaw. Drawing from the extensive experience of centres dealing with this type of neoplasms, we hope that we have managed to develop the optimal management system, applying the most recent achievements in the field of medicine, for these patients, and that it can be implemented effectively in Poland. These management guidelines have been arranged in the following order: gastric and duodenal NENs (including gastrinoma); pancreatic NENs; NENs of the small intestine and appendix, and colorectal NENs.

ABSTRACT: This article presents updated diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines for the management of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PNEN), proposed by the Polish Network of Neuroendocrine Tumours. The guidelines contain new data received in the years 2013-2016, which confirm previous recommendations, and have led to modification of previous guidelines or have resulted in the formulation of new guidelines. Biochemical and imaging (anatomical and functional) tests are of great importance in diagnostics, as well as histopathological diagnosis to determine the management of PNEN patients, but they must be confirmed by an immunohistochemical examination. PNEN therapy requires collaboration among the members a multidisciplinary team of specialists experienced in the management of these neoplasms. Surgery is the basic form of treatment in many cases. Further therapy requires a multidirectional procedure; therefore, the rules of biotherapy, peptide receptor radionuclide therapy, molecular targeted therapy, and chemotherapy are discussed.

ABSTRACT: This paper presents the updated Polish Neuroendocrine Tumour Network expert panel recommendations on the management of neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) of the stomach and duodenum, including gastrinoma. The recommendations discuss the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and clinical presentation of these tumours as well as their diagnosis, including biochemical, histopathological, and localisation diagnoses. The principles of treatment are discussed, including endoscopic, surgical, pharmacological, and radionuclide treatments. Finally, there are also recommendations on patient monitoring.

4 Article Liver Transplantation for a Metastatic Pancreatic Solid-Pseudopapillary Tumor (Frantz Tumor): A Case Report. 2018

ABSTRACT: d_abstr_CB Solid-pseudopapillary neoplasms (SPN) of the pancreas, first described by Frantz in 1959, are a very rare entity and account for 0.13-2.7% of all pancreatic neoplasms. They are seen predominantly in young women in their second and third decade of life. d_abstr_CCR We report a case of a 51-year-old female first diagnosed with a pancreatic tumor in 2010 following a computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen. The lesion was originally thought to be a neuroendocrine tumor subsequently treated with chemotherapy, which delayed the appropriate treatment. The tumor was rediagnosed as a SPN only after pancreatectomy was performed. Due to the fact that the neoplasm metastasized to the liver, the patient underwent an orthotopic cadaveric liver transplantation (OLTx) in 2013. During the postoperative period lymph node metastases were identified in the abdomen. The patient received surgical treatment and palliative radiotherapy. Presently no signs of recurrence are found either in the bed of pancreatic resection or in the transplanted liver. The function of the transplant organ has demonstrated no abnormalities over the 4-year follow-up. d_abstr_CC SPN of the pancreas is a rare disease associated with heterogeneous clinical course ranging from benign to metastatic. Choosing appropriate treatment requires individual clinical assessment of the disease's spread. Partial living donor liver transplantation or cadaveric liver transplantation might prove an effective therapeutic option for patients with multiple SPN metastases in the liver. It ought to be remembered, however, that the experience in this area is quite limited.

5 Article Glutaminases in slowly proliferating gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms/tumors (GEP-NETs): Selective overexpression of mRNA coding for the KGA isoform. 2016

ABSTRACT: Glutamine (Gln) is a crucial metabolite in cancer cells of different origin, and the expression and activity of different isoforms of the Gln-degrading enzyme, glutaminase (GA), have variable implications for tumor growth and metabolism. Human glutaminases are encoded by two genes: the GLS gene encodes the kidney-type glutaminases, KGA and GAC, while the GLS2 gene encodes the liver-type glutaminases, GAB and LGA. Recent studies suggest that the GAC isoform and thus high GAC/KGA ratio, are characteristic of highly proliferating tumors, while GLS2 proteins have an inhibitory effect on tumor growth. Here we analyzed the expression levels of distinct GA transcripts in 7 gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) with low proliferation index and 7 non-neoplastic tissues. GEP-NETs overexpressed KGA, while GAC, which was the most abundant isoform, was not different from control. The expression of the GLS2 gene showed tendency towards elevation in GEP-NETs compared to control. Collectively, the expression pattern of GA isoforms conforms to the low proliferative capacity of GEP-NETs encompassed in this study.

6 Article Liver transplantation for nonresectable metastatic solid pseudopapillary pancreatic cancer. 2013

Łągiewska, Beata / Pacholczyk, Marek / Lisik, Wojciech / Cichocki, Andrzej / Nawrocki, Grzegorz / Trzebicki, Janusz / Chmura, Andrzej. · ·Ann Transplant · Pubmed #24280737.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Solid pseudopapillary tumor (SPT) of the pancreas, also known as Franz tumor, Hamoudie tumor, solid-cystic-papillary epithelial neoplasm, or solid and cystic tumor, is a neoplasm of transitory (potential) malignancy, seen predominantly in young women. CASE REPORT: This report presents a female patient treated for a solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas with hepatic metastases. The tumor was first diagnosed in 2006. Non-specific abdominal pain was the first presenting symptom. The patient underwent distal pancreatic resection and splenectomy in July 2006. Multifocal metastatic disease seen at surgery precluded radical resection. Following definitive pathology confirmation and the exclusion of extrahepatic metastases, the patient was referred to our transplant centre 18 months after pancreatic surgery, to be considered for orthotopic liver transplantation (OLTx). The extent of the disease was once again evaluated by imaging studies, followed by exploratory laparotomy. The patient underwent cadaveric liver transplantation in March 2008, with triple immunosuppression (tacrolimus, MMF, and steroids) following surgery. Presently, more than 5 years post-transplant, the patient has no signs of recurrent neoplasmatic disease. CONCLUSIONS: This is the first liver transplantation for a metastatic pancreatic pseudopapillary tumor in Poland, with the longest follow-up period described in the literature. Follow-up suggests a cautiously optimistic prognosis despite primary unresectability of hepatic metastases and the necessity for immunosuppressive therapy.

7 Article [Endocrine tumors of the stomach and duodenum (including gastrinoma) - management guidelines (recommended by the Polish Network of Neuroendocrine Tumors)]. 2008

Rydzewska, Grazyna / Cichocki, Andrzej / Cwikła, Jarosław / Kos-Kudła, Beata / Krzyzanowska-Swiniarska, Barbara / Nasierowska-Guttmejer, Anna / Szawłowski, Andrzej / Tomaszewska, Romana A / Anonymous3310594. ·Klinka Chorob Wewnwtrznych i Gastroenterologii CSK MSWiA, Warszawa, Poland. grazyna.rydzewska@cskmswia.pl ·Endokrynol Pol · Pubmed #18335401.

ABSTRACT: The neuroendocrine tumors of the stomach and duodenum constitute only minority of neoplasms in this localisation. However due to their clinical behaviour and/or hormonal syndromes they pose diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. They display distinct phenotypes, regarding their pathogenesis, pathology and clinical course. Herein we present Polish guidelines for biochemical, pathological and localisation diagnosis, and discuss therapeutic approaches, considering endoscopic and surgical treatment, pharmacological and radionuclide therapy.
