Describing NENs: Just Clinical/Biologic Features or Actual Prognostic Factors? Abstract #1215

Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasias (NENs) are a rare group of diseases, with several possible locations and manifestations, often representing a challenging diagnosis. It is essential to improve tools that accurately predict aggressiveness and prognosis.
Aim(s): To assess differences in prognosis of gastrointestinal NENs according to location, histology and grade.
Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of clinical records of patients with NENs, during 10 years in Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa (CHLC).

#1630 The Positive Expression of PD-L1/PD-1 in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasias Correlates with Prognosis
Introduction: The incidence of Neuroendocrine Neoplasias (NENs) is increasing and their pathological characteristics, varied between races. However, the epidemiology of GEP-NENs in Chinese patients remains poorly characterized especially for the expression of important immune checkpoint protein PD1 and PD-L1.

#1265 Prognostic Factors for Recurrence of Sporadic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors After Surgical Resection
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) are rare neoplasms with heterogeneous presentation. The diagnosis of malignancy is often difficult, and then further studies may contribute to improve prognosis criteria.

#2250 Treatment Outcomes of Patients with Mixed Neuroendocrine Non-Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (MiNEN)
Introduction: Mixed neuroendocrine non-neuroendocrine neoplasms (MiNEN) have been newly defined in the WHO 2017 classification. They are rare tumors, commonly treated in analogy to their non-neuroendocrine (nNE) or neuroendocrine (NE) component without systematic data regarding the optimal therapeutic strategy.
