#2980 Metabolic Dysregulation and Circadian Clock in Cellular Models of Neuroendocrine Tumors

Introduction: The circadian clock genes encode transcription factors whose interaction with nuclear receptors allows the regulation of cellular metabolism.The invalidation of the genes of the clock core is associated with the development of many endocrine diseases including neuroendocrine cancer. Recently, the family of transcriptional coactivators PGC-1a has been identified as a key element in the integration of cellular metabolic state with the circadian clock. PRC, as a member of the PGC-1 family, was able to interact with several transcription factors, including the CLOCK factor. The specific induction of this PRC factor by the cell cycle, to modulate the energy function, the MAPkinase pathway and the expression of microRNAs, makes it a key factor in the metabolic adaptation of cancer cells.

#2978 Policy Barriers to Increasing Access to Radioligand Therapy for Neuroendocrine Cancers

Introduction: Radioligand therapy is a relatively new treatment approach used in a small number of neuroendocrine cancers and has been shown to improve overall survival and quality of life. Yet because it uses radioactivity, there are particular barriers to its greater integration into cancer care. As neuroendocrine cancers are rare, it is all the more urgent that these barriers be understood and overcome so that this treatment modality can become available to all patients who may benefit.

#2944 Soluble ST2 (sST2) Levels in the Management of Carcinoid Heart Disease in Patients with Neuroendocrine Cancer

Introduction: The identification of a sensitive biomarker to detect the presence and severity of carcinoid heart disease could allow more selective use of clinical and echocardiographic screening. ST2 is a protein belonging to the family of interleukin 1 receptors, present both in the isoform of transmembrane (ST2L) and in the soluble one (sST2). sST2 blocks the anti-inflammatory, anti-hypertrophic, and anti-fibrotic effects of cytokine IL-33 on the myocardium and recent studies have shown that sST2 levels increase in the blood of patients diagnosed with heart failure.

#2910 Virotherapy Shows Promising Efficacy in Neuroendocrine Cancers

Introduction: So far, there have been only two clinical studies using virotherapeutics to treat neuroendocrine cancers (NCT00314925 & NCT02749331). Notably, none of these approaches employed a clinically approved virotherapeutic compound.
