Pancreatic NET-G3 Does Not Respond to Platinum-Based Chemotherapy: A Multicenter Study of Neuroendocrine Carcinomas Abstract #1688

Introduction: Recent studies have shown that Pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) contain well-differentiated NETs with high proliferative activity (WDNET-G3), as well as poorly differentiated NECs (PDNECs). Although patients with pNEC show variable responses to platinum-based chemotherapy, predictors of the response are unknown.
Aim(s): The objective was to examine the clinicopathological and molecular features of pNEC and to assess the response to chemotherapy and survival in a multicenter, retrospective analysis.
Materials and methods: A total of 100 patients diagnosed with pNEC were enrolled. After the histological review, 70 pNECs were grouped into WDNET-G3 and PDNEC. The clinicopathological and molecular features of WDNET-G3 and PDNEC were characterized.

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.

#2279 Expression of FOXM1 in G3 Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET G3) and G3 Neuroendocrine Carcinomas (NEC G3) of the Pancreas and the Intestine
Introduction: G3 gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (G3 NET) and carcinomas (G3 NEC) differ considerably concerning their biological behavior and patients outcome. Whereas the WHO2017 classification for pancreatic NETs proposes a distinction of both groups using the Ki-67 proliferation marker (Klöppel et al. Reviews and Reports 2017), a useful marker for the subclassification of G3 intestinal NETs have not been recommended until now.
