#2955 Development of an EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire for Patients with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours: Phases 1-3
Introduction: Measuring quality of life (QoL) in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (pNET) involves assessing issues from symptoms, disease and treatment. The validated gastrointestinal NETs module (EORTC QLQ-GINET21) is used with EORTC QLQ-C30 but there are concerns it inadequately measures QoL in pNET.

#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.

#134 Gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors: tumor characteristics and long-term clinical outcome in the German NET registry
Introduction: Prognosis of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) has been difficult to predict due to heterogenous tumor biology, various classification systems, and lack of reliable and recent data due to the rarity of these tumors.

#221 Diagnostic Algorithm of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Diagnostics of pNETs is associated with certain problems due to a variety of clinical features, including a rather small size of primaries and, quite often, multiple lesions.

#244 Challenges in the Management of VIPoma Patients
Introduction: VIPomas are a rare neuroendocrine tumor (NET). 90% are pancreatic. 40-70% are metastatic at presentation. The VIPoma syndrome is characterized by secretory diarrhoea, hypokalaemia and achlorhydria.

#253 Description and Treatment of GEP NETs in a Spanish Hospital During 10 Years
Introduction: In our area the GEP NET incidence is similar to that of gastric and exocrine pancreatic cancers consequently being important to know their characteristics and the most convenient therapeutic approach.

#363 Clinicopathological characteristics are capable of predicting long-term outcome of gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumours in Germany
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours (NET) are a rare and heterogeneous group of neoplasm. Throughout the last decades the classification of NET has been both difficult and incoherent. Therefore making prognostic straticifation often difficult.
