A Kinomic Approach to Identify Signaling Proteins Involved in Drug Resistance in GastroEnteroPancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #1739

Introduction: Most of the current therapeutic strategies used for neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) result in tumour growth stabilization, eventually followed by tumour progression. Thus, despite their original characteristics, NETs exhibit similar resistance features to treatments than other more common tumours.
Aim(s): We aim at identifying signaling partners responsible of acquired resistance to treatments in order to develop drug combinations to prevent resistance occurence.
Materials and methods: We engineered NETs cell lines, BON-1 and QGP-1, resistant to a chemotherapeutic agent, Oxaliplatin, and to an mTor inhibitor, Everolimus, by chronically exposing them to the drugs. We are using microarray-based kinomics to obtain highthroughput kinase activity profiles from drug sensitive vs resistant cells.

#2091 Differential Signalling Pathways Drive Therapeutic Resistance in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Most of the current therapeutic strategies used for neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are insufficient due to poor knowledge of these tumours. Despite showing differentiated features, NETs often exhibit therapeutic resistance to common treatments similarly to other cancers. Although signalling abnormalities have been reported, molecular mechanisms responsible for this resistance phenomenon are yet to be understood.

#2682 PAK4-NAMPT Dual Inhibition as a Novel Strategy for Therapy Resistant Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) remain an unmet clinical need. In this study, we show that targeting both nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) and p21-activated kinase 4 (PAK4) could become a synthetic lethal strategy for PNET.

#2874 Role of FOXM1 in Aggressive Pancreatic / Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Carcinomas and Anti-Tumor Effect of the FOXM1 Inhibitor Thiostrepton
Introduction: DNA-targeting agents are the main treatment of aggressive pulmonary and pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC). FOXM1 is a transcription factor controlling cell proliferation and DNA repair pathways, playing therefore an important role in tumor progression and chemoresistance.

#2898 Novel Preclinical Models of Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumors for Drug Screening
Introduction: The incidence of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) from the small bowel (SBNETs) has increased markedly over the past several decades. Many patients with these tumors present with metastatic disease, and research into new treatment options for these tumors have been hindered by the limited number of patient-derived SBNET cell lines and in vivo models available for drug testing.
