Preliminary Results on the Diagnosis of NETs in Portugal – The Cross Sectional TNE-ETC Survey Abstract #1229

Introduction: NETs are increasing worldwide. Epidemiological data is lacking in Portugal. The NETs Study Group of the Portuguese Endocrine Society is committed to develop a National Registry.
Aim(s): To perform a multicenter cross-sectional study, to characterize demographic and clinical features of digestive NETs in Portugal.
Materials and methods: Cases identified from 15 participating centers over a period of 18 months; histological diagnosis mandatory for inclusion. Data collected in an electronic platform using PHP and JavaScript technologies, stored in a MySQL database. Demographic, clinical, histopathological and diagnostic data collected. Ethical principles concerning national legislation fulfilled. Statistical analysis performed with SPSSv15.0

#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.
