Analysis of MET and RET Expression in Patients with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Receiving Everolimus Abstract #2205

Introduction: Target therapy has improved the outcome of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), but little is known about the strategies to overcome the acquired resistance. MET is considered one of the putative mechanisms of resistance. RET is also rearranged in some other endocrine tumors (like thyroid).
Aim(s): We performed an analysis of MET and RET expression in patients with metastatic pancreatic NETs receiving everolimus, before and after treatment, in order to investigate if MET or RET pathways activate as putative mechanisms of resistance to mTOR inhibitors. Other exploratory analyses have been performed.
Materials and methods: Liver biopsies from 10 patients before and after everolimus were collected. We used FISH for RET rearrangement and MET amplification and immunohistochemical (IHC) analysis for phospho-Met and PTEN protein expression. We addictionally speculate the role of PDL-1 IHC expression as putative predictive biomarker. A novel next generation sequencing (Oncomine™ Solid Tumour DNA) was used to detect the mutation of 22 genes: EGFR, ERBB2, ERB4, MET, FGFR1, FGFR2, FGFR3, DDR2, ALK, KRAS, NRAS, PIK3CA, BRAF, PTEN, MAP2K1, AKT1, TP53, STK11, CTNNB1, SMAD4, FBXW7, NOTHC1.

#513 Correlation Between mTOR Pathway and Clinical Outcomes in Patients with Well-Differentiated Neuroendocrine Tumors Treated with Everolimus
Introduction: Everolimus has been studied in preclinical and clinical settings, showing it to be active and effective. Tumors exhibiting the constitutively activated phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase-AKT-mTOR (PI3K/AKT/mTOR) pathway, are potentially susceptible to mTOR inhibitors. Even though Everolimus is both an antiproliferative and anti-angiogenic drug, we do not know the possible prognostic or predictive role of p-mTOR pathway.

#1642 Angiogenic Circulating Biomarkers in Patients with Advanced Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Treated with Everolimus
Introduction: More than 10% of patient treated with Everolimus develop early onset of resistance. The lacking of adequate predictive factors in the targeted hera makes challenging the early identification of non-responders patients.

Introduction: MET has shown antitumorigenic effects on DM cancer pts, which are mediated by decrease of insulin/IGF-1 levels and activation of the AMPK pathway leading to mTOR inactivation.

#1368 Everolimus in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinomas G3
Introduction: Neuroendocrine Carcinomas (NEC) G3 are heterogeneous diseases with different behaviors, basing on tumor morphology and Ki67 value. Platinum-based chemotherapy is considered the standard treatment in these pts. However, tumors with well-moderately differentiated morphology (NET G3), with Ki67 < 55% may be considered a separate entity in terms of prognosis and therapeutic options
