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).

#2875 Immunotherapy as Second-line Treatment in Grade 3 Neuroendocrine Carcinomas: A Prospective Case Series from an ENETS Center of Excellence
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.

#2964 Personalized Therapy in a Case of Esophageal NEC Based on Tumor Genome Sequencing
Introduction: High-grade esophageal neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) constitute a rare subgroup of neuroendocrine neoplasms, with a particularly aggressive behaviour and unfavourable prognosis. To date, there are no validated biomarkers for personalized therapy and cytotoxic chemotherapy remains the standard of care. However, tumor genome sequencing may help improve NEC molecular landscape knowledge in order to identify novel targets for an individualized approach.
