Can Ki-67 with 5.5% Be Better in Predicting Prognosis for Well Differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors? Abstract #3036

Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare malignancies, Ki-67 is a cell proliferation marker that has been shown to have some utility in predicting prognosis of neuroendocrine tumors. However, the ideal grading method for G1/G2 remains controversial.
Aim(s): To study ki67 index in the role of predicting prognosis for patients(pts) with G1/G2 Pancreatic NETs.
Materials and methods: This was a retrospective study, the enrolled pts with grades G1 and G2 pancreatic NETs diagnosed at China-Japan Friendship Hospital from January 2012 to June 2018 were included. The follow-up deadline was June 2019. The diagnosis was based on the 2017 WHO endocrine organ tumor classification. The consensus of tumor pathological diagnosis was analyzed by SPSS 23.0 statistical software, cut-off value was calculated by ROC curve, and Kaplan-Meier method was used for univariate analysis to compare overall survival time.

#144 Oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy in patients with advanced neuroendocrine carcinoma: an Italian retrospective multicenter analysis
Introduction: Conventional chemotherapy does not have a well-defined role in well/moderately differentiated (WD) neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). Various regimens were evaluated. Cisplatin or carboplatin combined with etoposide are usually indicated in poorly differentiated (PD) NECs. Some evidence exists for oxaliplatin activity in WD and PD NECs, combined with capecitabine or gemcitabine.

#1008 STZ-Based Chemotherapy is Associated with Durable Response Rate in Pancreatic NET as 1st or 2nd Line Treatment
Introduction: The role of chemotherapy for pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) is controversially discussed. Objective response rates (RR) with streptozocin (STZ)-based chemotherapy are variable. Novel targeted drugs have recently been approved.
