AGTR1 Is Overexpressed in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms, Regulates Secretion and May Serve as a Target for Molecular Imaging and Therapy Abstract #2984

Introduction: Peptide receptor targeting has proven to be a pivotal tool for diagnostic imaging and radioligand therapy of neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs), which frequently express somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) on their cell surface. However, up to 30 % of NEN patients do not benefit from SSTR-based approaches, others develop a resistance.
Aim(s): Consequently, alternative cell surface targets need to be identified and characterized.
Materials and methods: Cell-based dynamic mass redistribution and calcium mobilization screening using a 998-compound library identified angiotensin II (ATII) as a strong activator of cellular signaling in NEN cells. Expression analyses of the ATII receptor type 1 (AGTR1) revealed upregulation of mRNA (RT-qPCR) and radioligand binding (autoradiography) in pancreatic (n=42) and small-intestinal (n=71) NEN tissues compared to healthy controls (n=25).

#156 Toxicity, response and survival analyses of Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) in treatment refractory metastatic thyroid cancer using Yttrium-90 and Lutetium-177 Labeled somatostatin analogs
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) represents about 3-16% of thyroid cancer. After first line treatment, therapeutic options for locally recurrent or metastasizing tumors include repeated surgery, whenever possible. Doxorubicin containing chemotherapy regimens in iodine-nonavid differentiated thyroid cancer have poor efficacy.

Introduction: It has been shown experimentally that low dose radiation can effectively kill slow growing cancer cells. Also, external beam radiation therapy applies a fractionated delivery of radiation dose to reduce toxicity with equal or even better therapeutic efficacy.
