PD-1, PD-L1 and PD-L2 Expression in Well-Differentiated Small Bowel Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumours (Wd SB-NETs). Abstract #1680

Introduction: Treatment options for patients with advanced Wd SB-NETs are limited.
Aim(s): We describe immune cell infiltration in this disease group.
Materials and methods: Patients diagnosed with Wd (WHO grade 1-2) SB-NETs, who had provided informed consent for analysis of archival tissue, were eligible. Programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1), PD-L2, PD-1 and tumour infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) were analysed by immunohistochemistry (IHC); PD-L1, PD1 and PD-L2 were also assessed with reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR).

Introduction: Metastatic WHO grade 3 extra-pulmonary neuroendocrine carcinomas (EP-NEC) have a poor prognosis and optimal treatment after first-line platinum-etoposide chemotherapy remains unclear. A recent, small phase II study combining ipilimumab and nivolumab showed promising results

#3005 Comparison between Tang and WHO 5th Edition Grade Classification for Goblet Cell Adenocarcinomas
Introduction: Appendiceal GCAs (previously Goblet Cell Carcinoids) are composed of cells with secretory phenotypes. Several grading systems to predict behaviour are available (e.g.Tang). The latest WHO 5th edition adopted a grading system similar to colon adenocarcinomas.

#1199 Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes and PD-L1 Expression Differ in Low and High Grade Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Although much progress has been made in the past 2-3 years in terms of understanding signaling pathways in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NENs), approved treatment options are still limited. Cancer Immunotherapy has been announced as the breakthrough of the year in 2013 and might become an integral part of the clinical management strategy for solid tumors including GEP-NENs. Therefore, to develop immunotherapeutic strategies against NENs we need to know which immune escape mechanisms are relevant in high and low grade NEC/NENs.
