Capecitabine-Temozolomide in G3 Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Abstract #1405

Introduction: There is no standard second line treatment for G3 neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs). The sensitivity to platinum combinations of G3 NENs with a Ki67 < 50% remains unclear.
Aim(s): We hypothesize that capecitabine-temozolomide (CAPTEM) could be a valid option in this setting.
Materials and methods: We retrospectively analyzed the outcome of NEN patients treated with CAPTEM in 12 sites in Spain between June/2008 and October/2015.

#1911 Histological Differentiation Provides Useful, Additive and Independent Prognostic Information to Proliferation Index in G2 and G3 Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (GEP-NENs)
Introduction: The WHO 2010 classification has provided a valuable tool to stratify NEN prognosis based on an objective measure, the proliferation index. However, morphology and, in particular, tumor differentiation, is emerging again as a relevant feature that should not be dismissed due to its important clinical implications.

#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
