Prognostic Evaluation for Gastroenteropancreatic NEC: AJCC or ENETS Staging Classification or Others? Abstract #2939

Introduction: For poorly-differentiated gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine carcinoma (GEP-NEC), American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) recommends to use a classification different from that for well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor. However, this is not adopted by European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS) staging classification.
Aim(s): To explore a classification which can better evaluate the prognosis of GEP-NEC.
Materials and methods: Patients with NEC from stomach, colorectum and pancreas were retrieved from SEER database and our multicenter cohort. Harrel’s concordance index (C-index) was used to calculate predictive accuracy.

Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are divided into two groups on the basis of clinical behaviour, histology, and proliferation rate: well differentiated (low grade to intermediate grade) neuroendocrine tumors and poorly differentiated (high grade) neuroendocrine carcinoma.
