Gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors: tumor characteristics and long-term clinical outcome in the German NET registry Abstract #134

Introduction: Prognosis of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) has been difficult to predict due to heterogenous tumor biology, various classification systems, and lack of reliable and recent data due to the rarity of these tumors.
Aim(s): In a nationwide survey of data from NETs diagnosed only since 1999, the German registry for gastrointestinal NETs (G-NET-Reg) has strived to accumulate and analyze factors which influence prognosis in NETs.
Materials and methods: The G-NET-Reg collected data from patients with histologically proven NET. Epidemiological, histopathological and clinical data, as well as information on overall and NET-specific outcome, were obtained and analyzed.

Introduction: Grading (G) of neuroendocrine tumors (NET) according to ENETS is based on immunhistochemical staining of Ki-67 antigen. Close margins between G1 and G2 NET often fail to differ in survival analysis.
