#1841 The Characteristics and Survivals of Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors, A Single Center Experience from Developing Country
Introduction: Gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors (GINETs) are a heterogeneous group of tumors with variable behaviors. We analyzed baseline characteristics and outcomes of GINETs and impact of the tumor grade on the overall survival.

#51 Epidemiology of the neuroendocrine tumors diagnosed in Cardarelli Hospital: a retrospective single-institution analysis of 274 cases
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are considered rare tumors and are characterized by their ability to produce peptides that cause typical hormonal syndromes. Neuroendocrine tumors consist of a wide spectrum of malignancies with different histology that can arise from distributed neuroendocrine cells in the body. Although these tumors are frequently indolent, they can be aggressive and resistant to therapy. Its incidence in the U.S.A has been rising in the last three decades (Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registry). NETs are more common than generally believed.

#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.

#2151 Therapeutic Efficacy of Platinum/Etoposide Regimens in the Treatment of Advanced Poor Differentiated Neuroendocrine Carcinomas of the Lung: A Retrospective Analysis
Introduction: Advanced neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) of the lung are associated with a dismal prognosis and are commonly treated with platinum/etoposide (P/E) regimens. However, few studies evaluated their impact in lung NEC and it is still unclear whether the outcome of such patients (pts) has been improved over the past years (yrs).

#738 Interferon Alpha in the Management of Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Retrospective Study in 37 Patients
Introduction: Interferon alpha (IFNα) has not been popular due to perceived lack of efficacy and toxicity profile. Current molecular targeted therapies demonstrate only modest anti-tumor effect with not insignificant toxicity.

#1102 First-Line Chemotherapy in Patients with Metastatic Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma (GEP-NEC): A Retrospective Analysis
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasia (GEP-NENs) are divided on the basis of Ki67 status into G1-G2 neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) (Ki67 <20%) and neuroendocrine carcinoma (NECs) (Ki67 >20% ). NEC patients generally have a poor prognosis and the first choice treatment is chemotherapy.A cisplatin/etoposide combination is often used as NECs are considered clinically similar to small cell lung cancer (SCLC), but no literature data is available. There is some evidence to suggest that carboplatin may also be effective in metastatic SCLC.
