#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.

#845 Ki-67 Index as a Biomarker of Response to Cytotoxic Chemotherapy
Introduction: Chemotherapy (CT) is widely used for neuroendocrine tumors (NET) but there are no validated biomarkers to predict response. The Ki-67 proliferation index has been proposed as a means of selecting patients for CT but robust data are lacking.

#862 The Role of Chromogranin A as a Predictor of Radiological Disease Progression in Midgut and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Chromogranin A (CgA) is an established neuroendocrine biomarker. However, its role as a predictor of radiological disease progression in all neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) has not been recognised yet.

#2118 Reassessment of Risk Factors Associated with Locoregional Lymph Nodal Metastases in Well-Differentiated Appendiceal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: To prevent loco-regional recurrence and subsequent development of distant metastases in Appendiceal Neuro-Endocrine Neoplasms (ANEN), the existing Guidelines have identified risk factors which would indicate a prophylactic right hemicolectomy(RHC).
