Ten Years of Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NETs): Evolution of Classification and Correlation with Follow-up in 50 Patients Abstract #432

Introduction: In the last decade, GEP-NET nomenclature has been twice reviewed. The 2000 WHO classification had poor prognostic power in well-differentiated (WD) neoplasms which led to the introduction of two new important parameters: grade and stage, by ENETS; the former became part of the new 2010 WHO classification.
Aim(s): Considering the recent introduction of grade and stage, their external validation has been called for in the literature. Since these are important tools in the management of patients, our aim was to reclassify retrospectively with grade and stage our series and correlate with follow-up.
Materials and methods: From the histopathology archive at our center, 170 GEP-NETs (1993-2011) were identified. Until now, 50 patients have been reclassified. Mean age at diagnosis was 56 years, F:M ratio was 1:1.2 and mean follow-up was 56 months (2-196).

#836 Grade Increases In Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Metastases Compared to the Primary Tumor
Introduction: The neuroendocrine tumor (NET) proliferation-based grading system (ENETS/WHO) has proved reliable for prognostic stratification of gastroenteropancreatic tumors (GEP). Although anecdotes have been published, no single study has evaluated whether grade changes between primary site and metastases.

#837 Does Biopsy Reliably Identify Grade In Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors?
Introduction: A new proliferation-based grading system has proved important in establishing prognosis and guiding therapy in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs). Biopsies are often performed for grading but little is known about their reliability in assigning grade.

#2215 Development of Multiplex Biomarker Assay to Subtype Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PanNETs) with Distinct Prognosis and Mutations
Introduction: Overall 5-year survival for PanNETs ranges from 25-100%. The treatment paradigm for PanNETs largely based upon grades, which is significantly heterogeneous. We previously defined three molecular subtypes (distributed grades) of PanNETs using PanNETassigner signature. There is an unmet clinical need for prognostic and predictive biomarkers and clinically-relevant assays to complement grade and improve patient stratification.
