Immune-Related Factors Analysis Enhances the Stratification of GEP-NENs Patients Into Distinct Prognostic Subsets Abstract #1755

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.
Aim(s): Prognostic role of immune-related markers has not been investigated.
Materials and methods: We characterized by IHC primitive tumors and surrounding stroma from 136 GEP-NENs patients (pts). A validated quantitative score combining expression and intensity was used. Prognosis was evaluated in terms of disease-free survival (DFS). Variables were selected according to their significance in a random forest (RF) model and further analyzed with multivariable Cox model to predict 5-year DFS.

#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.

#1753 Ki67 Is Able to Predict Pancreatic NENs Prognosis Irrespective of Their Size
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.

#2133 Clinicopathological Features of the High Grade Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: The high grade pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PanNENs) include well-differentiated tumors (WD-NETs) with elevated proliferation and poorly differentiated carcinomas (PD-NECs).

#1323 Expression of Oncofetal Protein IMP3 in Lymph Node Metastases of Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A New Predictor of Recurrence
Introduction: Small intestine neuroendocrine neoplasm (SINENs) are heterogeneous neoplasms arising from endocrine cells of the intestinal mucosa. Ki67 is the main determinant of prognosis in NENs. However, the research for new prognostic makers represent a key-point. The oncofetal protein IMP3 plays a role in cell growth and its expression has a prognostic value in lung neoplasms.

#1448 Distribution of T-Cell Infiltrate in G1, G2 and G3 NENs
Introduction: The identification of T-cell infiltrate and the expression of inhibitory molecules in the tumor microenvironment could lend support to the use of immunotherapy in the treatment of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (GEP-NENs).
