Trends in Management of Gastro-Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: The Contribute of a Case Series. Abstract #2301

Introduction: The risk to develop gastro-intestinal malignancies is higher in patients affected by inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Apart from colo-rectal cancer, related to a long standing inflammation, there is a growing evidence of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) in these patients and a correlation between these two diseases has been postulated. We report four cases of NETs in IBD.
Aim(s): content needed
Materials and methods: The histologic parameters and the immunophenotype of the neoplastic lesions were assessed by an expert pathologist using A-chromogranin, synaptophysin, serotonin and somatostatin receptor (SSTR). The distribution of enteroendocrine cells in inflamed bowel mucosa was evaluated with chromogranin stain.

#2172 Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Lesions in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Introduction: Whether inflammatory Bowel disease (IBD) increases the risk of developing neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) is not clear. NETs are rare in IBD, though one recent report suggests that NETs are 15 times more frequent in patients with Crohn’s disease. Besides NETs, which are discrete mass-forming lesions, microscopic neuroendocrine cell clusters or micronests (NEMs), difficult to measure, are sometimes observed in the lamina propria/muscularis mucosae of IBD patients.

#2683 Clinicopathological Features and Prognostic Analysis of 227 Cases with Well-Differentiated Gastric Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms (g-NENs) are a group of rare tumors with a strong heterogeneity, subdivided as well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NETs, type 1-3 g-NETs) and poorly-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma(NECs). WHO classification(2019) for digestive system tumours has carried out a new classification and grading criteria for NENs of the gastrointestinal tract recently, there is very few relevant clinical data based on this new classification, especially for gastric NETs(g-NETs).

#2685 Apatinib Inhibits Tumor Growth and Angiogenesis in PNET Models
Introduction: Angiogenesis has a pivotal role in the growth and metastasis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). Apatinib inhibits angiogenesis as a highly selective KDR inhibitor and has been used to treat advanced gastric cancer and malignancies in clinical settings. However, the efficacy of apatinib in PNETs remains unclear.

#2686 Survivorship Care Model for Patients with Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors(NET)are rare often indolent tumors. Approximately 22% of patients (pt's) present with metastatic disease at diagnosis and can live with metastatic disease for years. These pt's often don't identify as cancer survivors and don't meet the criteria for care in traditional survivorship clinics
