#859 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PNETs): Role of Endoscopic UltraSound-Fine Needle Aspiration (EUS-FNA) and Accuracy of Ki-67 Measurement on Cytological Specimens
Introduction: The role of EUS-FNA in preoperative diagnosis and grading of pNETs is well-established, but it is unclear how Ki-67 expression on cytological specimens obtained by EUS-FNA reflects the value found on surgical specimens.

#1221 Pancreatic Location, High Proliferation and Low p-mTOR Expression Levels Are More Frequent in Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients Responsive to mTOR Inhibitors: Results from a Preliminary Study
Introduction: MTOR inhibitors are approved for the treatment of advanced neuroendocrine tumors. However, scarce data are available on clinical or pathological predictors of response to these agents

#1538 Safety of High Doses Lanreotide Treatment in Patients with Progressive Neuroendocrine Tumors: Results from a Prospective Phase II Trial
Introduction: Dose escalation (or interval reduction) of somatostatin analogs (SSAs) is a rather common strategy for patients (pts) with progressive metastatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). However, to date, no systematic prospective studies have been carried out to evaluate safety and efficacy of this treatment schedule in NETs.

#1928 Pancreatic Involvement in VHL Disease: The Turin Experience
Introduction: Von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) is a rare heritable genetic syndrome. Its typical manifestations concern CNS but it may affect other organs such as the pancreas.

#1929 Safety and Efficacy of High Doses Lanreotide Treatment in Patients with Progressive Neuroendocrine Tumors: Results from a Prospective Phase II Trial
Introduction: To date no systematic prospective trials have been carried out to evaluate safety and efficacy of unconventional doses of somatostatin analogs (SSAs) in neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). However,dose escalation of SSAs is a common strategy.

#1930 Concomitant Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasms and Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Pancreas: More than just a Coincidence?
Introduction: Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) are rare tumors. Up to now 14 patients with association of
endocrine and exocrine neoplasms of the pancreas have been reported in literature: this association is not expected to be frequent

#2301 Trends in Management of Gastro-Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: The Contribute of a Case Series.
Introduction: The risk to develop gastro-intestinal malignancies is higher in patients affected by inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Apart from colo-rectal cancer, related to a long standing inflammation, there is a growing evidence of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) in these patients and a correlation between these two diseases has been postulated. We report four cases of NETs in IBD.

#106 Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors: single institution clinicopathological study
Introduction: Neuroendocrine cells are widely distributed throughout the body, and neoplasms from these dispersed cells can arise at many sites. They are distinguished into two broad categories: 1) Tumors identified as small cell lung carcinomas with biology and natural history of a high-grade malignancy and characteristics of small cell undifferentiated or anaplastic appearance by light microscopy. The WHO categorizes these tumors as poorly-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas; 2) Well-defined neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) with variable, but most lyindolent biologic behavior and characteristic well-differentiated histologic features. The majority arise in the gastrointestinal tract and collectively they are referred as gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP/NETs). They include carcinoid tumors, pancreatic islet cell tumors (gastrinoma, insulinoma, glucagonoma, VIPoma, somatostatinoma), paragangliomas, pheochromocytomas, and medullary thyroid carcinomas. The WHO classifies the GEP/NETs as well-differentiated NETs (carcinoid tumors) if they are noninvasive and have benign behavior or uncertain malignant potential. In contrast, GEP/NETs with characteristics of low-grade malignancy with invasion of the muscularis propria or beyond, or metastases, are characterized as well-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (malignant carcinoids). Pancreatic islet cell tumors, whether functioning or not, are classified as well-differentiated NETs or well-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas, due to the (depending on) histologic characteristics. The WHO classification for gastroenteropancreatic NETs based on stage (ie size and presence of metastases) and grade (mitotic rate, perineural and lymphovascular invasion, Ki-67 proliferative index) categorizes them as well-differentiated NETs, e.g., carcinoid tumors, or as well-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas.
