Analysis of Oesophageal Neuroendocrine Tumour Outcomes Abstract #1500

Introduction: Oesophageal Neuroendocrine Tumours(NETs) are rare neoplasms accounting for <2% of Gastroenteropancreatic NET(GEP NETs).
Aim(s): To present our patients' group clinicopathological features, treatment and prognosis.
Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis from a GEP NET database of 1700 patients treated from October 2007 to November 2015.

#1551 Establishment and Characterization of Three GEP-NEC Cell Lines for In Vitro and In Vivo Studies
Introduction: To date chemotherapeutic concepts applying cisplatin/etoposide for the treatment of highly aggressive GEP-NEC do not provide convincing results. Thus, there is an urgent need for NEC cell line models that provide a reliable experimental system in identifying novel therapeutic targets.

#2248 High Grade (G3) Gastro-Entero-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Should the New WHO Classification Apply to All?
Introduction: Grade 3 (G3) neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN), arising from the gastro-entero-pancreatic system (GEP), are classified according to WHO 2010 and defined as having a Ki67 of > 20%. However this groups together G3 well differentiated neuroendocrine tumours (WD-NET) with poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (PD-NEC). Recently, WHO have proposed a new classification for pancreatic NEN, with sub-division into G3 WD-NET and G3 PD-NEC

#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.
