A Three Tier Grading System Based on Ki-67 Index, Mitotic Count and Necrosis with Cut-Offs Specifically Generated for Lung Neuroendocrine Tumors is Prognostically Effective and Accurate Abstract #935

Introduction: Lung neuroendocrine tumors are catalogued into four categories by the World Health Organization (WHO 2004) classification. Its reproducibility and prognostic efficacy was disputed. The WHO 2010 classification of digestive neuroendocrine neoplasms is based on a Ki-67 index and has proved prognostically effective.
Aim(s): To compare the two classifications and to define a new prognostic grading system for lung.
Materials and methods: Three-hundred and ninety-nine patients who underwent surgery and with at least one year follow-up between 1989-2011. Twenty-one variables were collected and performance of grading systems and their components compared by Cox regression and multivariable analyses; all tests were two-sided.

#867 Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinoma (MANECs): A Rare and Challenging Subgroup of Neuroendocrine Neoplasia
Introduction: Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinomas (MANECs) are rare entities in which at least 30% of neoplastic cells are neuroendocrine in nature (WHO 2010 classification). They result either from two independent lesions that merge together or are unique lesions with different cell populations intermingled.

#97 The role of Ki-67 in the prognosis and management of neuroendocrine (NET) patients in a multdisciplinary cancer center
Introduction: The role of Ki-67 in NETs has become increasingly important, especially in light of the current trend in oncology to incorporate pathological molecular characteristics in determining treatment. In North America, Ki-67 is used inconsistently, as there exists some debate in the literature about its predictive value.
