Well-Differentiated G1/G2 Pancreatic NETs Can Evolve Towards G3 Tumors Abstract #1900

Introduction: Well-differentiated G1/G2 pancreatic NET (pNET) may evolve towards well-differentiated G3 pNET or carcinoma (pNEC)
Aim(s): Report patients (pts) with evolution from G1/G2 pNET to G3 pNET or pNEC
Materials and methods: All pts with initial G1/G2 pNET with new biopsy at the time of radiological or clinical progression (within 6 months) were included in this monocentric retrospective study

#536 Orexins Exert a Pro-Apoptotic Effect on Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) in an Ex Vivo Culture Model of Tissue Slices
Introduction: Ex vivo culture models of tissue slices are suitable to test the effect of antitumor agents in human tumors. The orexins are neuropeptides binding to G protein-coupled receptors (OX1-R and OX2-R), exerting a pro-apoptotic effect in human colon and pancreatic cancer cell lines.

#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.

Introduction: Digestive Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (DNENs) express in 80% of cases somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) detected by functional imaging tests (FITs). FITs are needed at diagnosis to define therapy but their role in follow-up (FU) is unclear

#1852 Is Ki67 Index in Biopsy Tissue Truly Reflect Grading of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasm?
Introduction: Ki67 index is essential for progression and treatment of pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm (pNEN). For advanced pNEN patient(pts), Ki67 scoring by core/fine-needle biopsy is used to evaluate pNEN pts’ grade.
