Clinico-Pathologic and Survival Analysis of 211 GastroEnteroPancreatic G3 Neuroendocrine Carcinomas (GEP-NECs) Abstract #1204

Introduction: GEP-NECs show Ki67>20% and/or >20 mitoses x10 HPF. Mixed AdenoNeuroendocrine Carcinomas (MANECs) are mixed exocrine-neuroendocrine neoplasms. NECs are associated with poor prognosis but recent findings have suggested that there is a fraction of patients showing a better than expected survival rate.
Aim(s): The present study correlates the prognosis of GEP-NECs/MANECs with clinicopathologic features.
Materials and methods: 211 NECs or MANECs were evaluated by 8 expert pathologists and stratified into the following subgroups: NECs vs MANECs; ‘low proliferative’ (LP) NECs (mitoses <20 and Ki67 between 20% and 55%) vs ‘highly proliferative’ (HP) NECs (mitoses >20 and Ki67>55%) vs MANECs. Prognosis was studied through Median Overall Survival (MOS)

Introduction: In pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (pNENs), size <20mm and Ki67≤2% suggest indolent behavior. None of these factors alone predicts prognosis. No other predictive factors have been suggested.

#1755 Immune-Related Factors Analysis Enhances the Stratification of GEP-NENs Patients Into Distinct Prognostic Subsets
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) are divided into different prognostic categories according to Ki67 class (≤2%: 2%-20%; 20%-55%; >55%); treatment strategies based on this classification are not fully effective.
