#129 Grade according to Ki-67 or mitotic count in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are uncommon tumors with a reported incidence of 2.5-5 per 100000 population. The recent classification system of NETs proposed by the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS) uses both Ki-67 labelling index and mitotic index to assign grade (low, intermediate, high). It has been adopted into routine practice but there is limited data on the relationship between these indices and their effect on classification.

#160 The role of T-type calcium channels in medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC): T-type calcium channel blockers inhibit hormone secretion and induce apoptotic cell death in a human MTC cell line
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) accounts for approximately 5-10% of thyroid cancers. In the case of tumors limited to the thyroid gland, the prognosis is generally favorable, whereas 5-year survival averages only 40% in patients with metastatic disease. In these patients, conventional chemotherapy only occasionally leads to a complete response and partial responses are observed in less than 30% of the cases. Therefore, intense efforts are currently directed toward the identification of new druggable targets for the treatment of this devastating disease.

#432 Ten Years of Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NETs): Evolution of Classification and Correlation with Follow-up in 50 Patients
Introduction: In the last decade, GEP-NET nomenclature has been twice reviewed. The 2000 WHO classification had poor prognostic power in well-differentiated (WD) neoplasms which led to the introduction of two new important parameters: grade and stage, by ENETS; the former became part of the new 2010 WHO classification.

#584 KI-67 HETEROGENEITY IN GASTRO-ENTERO-PANCREATIC NEUROENDOCRINE TUMORS
Introduction: The neuroendocrine tumor (NET) proliferation-based grading system (ENETs/WHO) has proved reliable for prognostic stratification, however concerns exist on Ki67 heterogeneity.

#836 Grade Increases In Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Metastases Compared to the Primary Tumor
Introduction: The neuroendocrine tumor (NET) proliferation-based grading system (ENETS/WHO) has proved reliable for prognostic stratification of gastroenteropancreatic tumors (GEP). Although anecdotes have been published, no single study has evaluated whether grade changes between primary site and metastases.

#837 Does Biopsy Reliably Identify Grade In Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors?
Introduction: A new proliferation-based grading system has proved important in establishing prognosis and guiding therapy in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs). Biopsies are often performed for grading but little is known about their reliability in assigning grade.

#2057 Morphological Factors Related to Nodal Metastases in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of the Appendix. A Multicenter Retrospective Study
Introduction: Appendiceal NETs are usually diagnosed accidentally after appendectomy; the indications for right hemicolectomy are currently based on several parameters (tumor size, grading, Ki-67, localization, mesoappendiceal invasion, lympho-vascular infiltration). Available guidelines are based on scarce evidence inferred by small, retrospective, single institution studies.

#2103 Neuroendocrine Tumors in the Chilean Population
Introduction: In recent years, neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) have shown a significant raise in prevalence and incidence. However this observation needs to be accurately quantified using reliable epidemiological databases.
