#3320 TGF-β increase caspase activation and migration in typical bronchial carcinoids

Introduction: Typical bronchial carcinoids (TBC) are well-differentiated neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) whose management can still be very challenging due to reduced sensitivity to therapy. Previous studies have reported TGF-β’s ability to activate mTOR pathway and induce epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT). Moreover, preliminary results show an overexpression of TGF-β signalling and caspase activation in TBC.

#2983 Differential TGF-β Signalling in Typical and Atypical Bronchial Carcinoids

Introduction: Typical and atypical bronchial carcinoids (TBC and ABC) are well-differentiated neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN). Metastatic BC having low to moderate mitotic count may still be treated with somatostatin analogues and mTOR inhibitors; however, TBC and ABC have been reported to respond very differently to therapy and an effective treatment algorithm is still lacking. TGF-β is known for its ability to activate mTOR pathway and induce epithelial mesenchymal transition, affecting cell pathophysiological capabilities such as proliferation, migration and tissue invasiveness.

#2817 METNET: A Phase II Trial of Metformin in Patients with Well Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors

Introduction: Preclinical studies have suggested that metformin has antitumor effects, likely due to blockage of mTOR pathway through AMPK and decreased insulin levels. A retrospective study showed that metformin combined with everolimus to treat related hyperglycemia offered longer progression-free survival (PFS) in patients (pts) with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET).

#2795 Molecular Correlation of the Activity of Evofosfamide (EVO) in Combination with Sunitinib (SUN) in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (pNETs) in the SUNEVO GETNE Trial

Introduction: MEN1, DAXX, ATRX, and PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway genes are frequently mutated in pNETs. Sunitinib is approved and widely used in the metastatic setting but unfortunately, no validated predictive biomarker has been identified to guide therapy yet. The SUNEVO phase II trial of the Spanish Task Force Group for Neuroendocrine and Endocrine Tumours (GETNE) trial combined the pro-drug of EVO under SUN-induced hypoxic conditions.

#2785 Inhibition of Cyclin Dependent Kinases Overcomes MYC-Driven Secondary Resistance to Everolimus in Digestive NETs

Introduction: Dysregulation of the mTOR pathway in digestive neuroendocrine tumours (d-NETs) led to the introduction of Everolimus (EVE) as treatment. EVE significantly increases PFS, but most patients acquire resistance, due to activation of feedback loops.

Abstract Submissions in 2022

Abstract submissions for 2022 will open in September 2021!

 

The 19th Annual ENETS Conference in 2022 will provide the principal platform for NET researchers around the world to present their latest findings. ENETS will select the best abstracts submitted in both clinical and basic science and present these in sessions within the framework of its scientific programme.

 

Participants of the ENETS Virtual Conference 2021 can now access the abstract booklet, e-posters and videos, the poster carousel, and more via My ENETS.
