#220 The Global mTOR Inhibitor Torin1 is More Effective than the mTORC1 Inhibitor, Everolimus, Alone or in Combination with Histone Deacetylases Inhibitors, in Suppressing Neuroendocrine Tumors Cell Proliferation
Introduction: Torin1, a new mTOR inhibitor that globally inhibits both mTORC1 and mTORC2, seems to impair cell growth and proliferation to a greater degree than rapamycin; its effects in NET cells are unknown.

#815 The Effect of Autophagy Inhibitors Alone or in Combination with mTOR Inhibitors in a Neuroendocrine Tumor Cell Model
Introduction: Most patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) require systemic treatment, often with a limited therapeutic effect. RAD001 and Torin1 are mTOR inhibitors (mTORi) known to suppress cell proliferation in NETs. However, cancer cells may use mTORi-induced autophagy to escape the anti-proliferative effect and to prolong cell survival. Chloroquine (CQ) and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) inhibit autophagy.

#1036 Abrogation of Autophagy by Chloroquine in Neuroendocrine Tumor Cells Treated with mTOR Inhibitors Induces Apoptosis, While Reduction of Cell Proliferation is Due to a Chloroquine, Autophagy Unrelated, Lysosomal Effect
Introduction: The therapy options for patients with advanced NETs are limited. The mTOR inhibitors (mTORi), Torin1 and NVP-BEZ235, are known to suppress cell proliferation in NETs. However, cancer cells may use mTORi-induced autophagy to prolong survival, evading the anti-cancer effect. Chloroquine (CQ) and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) have been shown to inhibit autophagy.

Notice

Dear conference participant,

Thank you for participating in the ENETS Virtual Conference 2020!

You now have the opportunity to view the webcasts, abstracts and e-posters via My ENETS. Don't miss on any of the exciting talks and take your time to view the clinical and basic science abstract sessions.

If you require a certificate of attendance, please log into My ENETS and select “Annual Conferences” from the side menu, then click on “My registrations” and select your registration for 2020. Please choose "Certificate o.A." to receive your certificate of attendance.

A note on CME accreditation:

ENETS has been liaising with UEMS regarding CME accreditation for the virtual conference. At present, we do not have a definitive answer. We will keep you updated.

 

Wishing you all the best,

The entire ENETS team
