Evaluate the Accuracy of Pathological Diagnosis on Biopsy Specimens from Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #1429

Introduction: Gastrointestinal neuroendocrine neoplasms (GI-NENs) is a highly heterogeneous tumor. The accuracy of pathological diagnosis on the biopsy is crucial for GI-NENs but rarely investigated
Aim(s): To investigate the accuracy of pathological diagnosis on biopsy samples of GI-NENs
Materials and methods: Totally 54 paired biopsy and surgical GI-NENs cases from our hospital were retrospectively analyzed, 21 cases of low differentiated adenocarcinoma of the same period were randomly selected as control. We have used Immunohistochemistry (IHC) of Synaptophysin (Syn), Chromogranin-A (CgA), CD56(NCAM), CK, Ki-67 and special staining (AB-PAS, Mucus card red) to confirm the neuroendocrine component and the grade of the tumor. The consistence of the diagnosis between the biopsy and surgical samples was further evaluated.

#622 Evaluation of Mucin and Neuroendocrine Expression in Diffuse Gastric Cancer with Signet Ring Cell Morphology
Introduction: A proportion of diffuse gastric carcinoma, according to the Lauren classification system, has signet ring cell morphology. Signet ring cells are characterized by a peripherally placed nucleus and a central amorphous substance, which is reported to be mucin based on Periodic Acid Schiff positivity (PAS). PAS is not a specific staining method for mucin. Neuroendocrine expression has previously been reported in tumor cells in diffuse type gastric cancer.

#1304 Analysis of 18FDG-PET/CT in Patients with Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Neoplasm
Introduction: Gastrointestinal neuroendocrine neoplasm (Gi-NEN) comprised a wide and heterogeneous group of neoplasms. Diagnosis could often be challenging due to their rarity. 18FDG-PET/CT had a high accuracy for poorly differentiated NENs.

#2037 Stromal Immune Contexture Predicts Disease-Free Survival in Gastro-Entero-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (GEP-NENs)
Introduction: Stromal Immune Contexture (SIC) helps predict prognosis in solid Tumors (T) but has been poorly investigated in gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (GEP-NENs). We tested whether GEP-NENs profiling for adaptive immunity-related SIC markers, as well as inflammatory (COX2),EMT [Beta-catenin (B-cat)] and oncogenic pathway signaling (pS6) markers,could improve Ki67 and/or MO-based prediction of OS and DFS.
