Experience of a Single Italian Center with NET Patients Abstract #793

Introduction: The management of neuroendocrine tumors involves a multidisciplinary approach, so in 2004 the Endocrinology and Metabolic Unit developed a local/regional network to manage NET patients and to increase physician awareness of the disease.
Aim(s): A retrospective study of patients diagnosed with NET from 1990 to 2012 was gathered, including data regarding NET epidemiology in order to examine some characteristics of the health care/assistance process.
Materials and methods: Data collection from the hospital's computerized clinical charts, old hand-written records, and the “NET Management Study” database. Besides the demographic-epidemiological data, information was acquired regarding the dates of the initial symptoms, of the first clinical visit, of confirmed diagnosis and first endocrinological visit.

#1666 Prognosis and Incidence in Pancreatic and Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms with Emphasis on “NET G3”: An Analysis of 198 Cases from Japan
Introduction: Prognostic impact of well differentiated pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PanNENs) with a Ki67 >20%, provisionally called NET G3, needs to be validated and compared to poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). Moreover, the frequency of NET G3 among gastrointestinal NENs (GI-NENs) has so far not been studied.
