Interlaboratory Variability of MIB1 Staining in Well Differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #1104

Introduction: In neuroendocrine tumors (NET) grading and staging are the only routinely performed procedures to judge prognosis. Proliferation index using MIB1 staining has been introduced to assess grading. There are discussions on cut-off definitions, automated counting and inter-observer variability.
Aim(s): To assess Inter-lab differences, we performed MIB1 staining in 3 different University Hospital based pathology laboratories on a TMA of a well characterized patient cohort, containing pancreatic NET of 61 patients.
Materials and methods: To calculate the proliferation index, number of positive tumour nuclei was divided by the total number of tumour nuclei. Labelling index was compared to mitotic counts in whole tissue sections and to outcome. Linear regression analysis and ROC analysis were performed.

#896 Grading of Metastases in Digestive Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET): Interest for Clinical Management?
Introduction: Therapeutic strategy of NETs is highly dependent on tumor classification according to the WHO system. NETs are frequently classified based on the histological characteristics of the primary tumor associated with the ENETS grading, even for patients with metastases.

#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.

Introduction: The role of surgical treatment of liver metastasis from neuroendocrine neoplasm(NET) is still a debated issue,and the management of these patients is entrusted to the practical experience of single centers.The main problem is that there are not available randomized trials comparing surgical resection to unthreated patients or other liver directed therapy.
