Clinical Characterization of Patients with Neuroendocrine Neoplasm of the Appendix in Ireland and in Italy: A Retrospective Study from Two Tertiary Institutions Abstract #1747

Introduction: Appendiceal neuroendocrine neoplasms (aNEN) are rare tumors often diagnosed incidentally at appendectomy. Though most aNEN patients have a positive outcome, distant metastases may rarely occur and the identification of the patients at higher risk is required
Aim(s): To retrospectively collect and analyze histological, clinical, biological and follow-up data of aNENs
Materials and methods: All patients with histologically proven aNENs diagnosed at Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin and Fondazione IRCCS Ca’ Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico,Milan from 2000 to 2015 were included

#1323 Expression of Oncofetal Protein IMP3 in Lymph Node Metastases of Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A New Predictor of Recurrence
Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine neoplasm (SINENs) are heterogeneous neoplasms arising from endocrine cells of the intestinal mucosa. Ki67 is the main determinant of prognosis in NENs. However, the research for new prognostic makers represent a key-point. The oncofetal protein IMP3 plays a role in cell growth and its expression has a prognostic value in lung neoplasms.
