Well-Differentiated G1/G2 Pancreatic NETs Can Evolve Towards G3 Tumors Abstract #1900

Introduction: Well-differentiated G1/G2 pancreatic NET (pNET) may evolve towards well-differentiated G3 pNET or carcinoma (pNEC)
Aim(s): Report patients (pts) with evolution from G1/G2 pNET to G3 pNET or pNEC
Materials and methods: All pts with initial G1/G2 pNET with new biopsy at the time of radiological or clinical progression (within 6 months) were included in this monocentric retrospective study

#536 Orexins Exert a Pro-Apoptotic Effect on Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) in an Ex Vivo Culture Model of Tissue Slices
Introduction: Ex vivo culture models of tissue slices are suitable to test the effect of antitumor agents in human tumors. The orexins are neuropeptides binding to G protein-coupled receptors (OX1-R and OX2-R), exerting a pro-apoptotic effect in human colon and pancreatic cancer cell lines.

#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.

Introduction: Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (DNENs) express in 80% of cases somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) detected by functional imaging tests (FITs). FITs are needed at diagnosis to define therapy but their role in follow-up (FU) is unclear

#3015 Biopsy Specimen Diagnosis in Pulmonary Carcinoids, A Shot in the Dark
Introduction: Pulmonary carcinoids (PCs) are rare well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors, which can be separated into typical carcinoid (TC) and atypical carcinoid (AC). Advised treatment for local carcinoid disease is surgical resection using lobectomy, while parenchymal saving strategies such as sub-lobar or endobronchial resection might be considered for TC. In general, pre-operative diagnosis using a (transbronchial/transthoracic) biopsy sample is performed to demonstrate malignancy. However, TC and AC classification can solely be performed on surgical resection specimens, which may challenge pre-operative treatment decisions.
