Antitumor Activity of Desmopressin (dDAVP) and the New Analog [V4Q5]dDAVP in Human Small Cell Lung Cancer Abstract #1555

Introduction: Lung cancer is the main cause of cancer death. Non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cause about 85% of cases and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) represents 15%. Therapy resistance is commonly related with a transformation from adenocarcinoma to SCLC. SCLC shows neuroendocrine (NE) features and exhibits aggressive behavior. In vitro production of vasopressin (AVP) was reported in SCLC. The AVP V1 receptors are associated with mitogenic signaling pathways, while AVP V2 receptor (V2r) is related with an opposite effect. DDAVP is a synthetic analog of AVP that acts as a selective agonist for V2r. DDAVP displays cytostatic and antimetastatic properties in breast and colorectal cancer. In our laboratory a new analog, [V4Q5]dDAVP, showed improved cytostatic activity
Aim(s): In this study we evaluated the antitumor ability of the analogs mediated by V2r on a human SCLC cell line.
Materials and methods: We used NCI-H82. V2r expression and NE markers were confirmed by immunofluorescence and qRT-PCR. Cytostatic activity of the analogs was studied with MTS assay. V2r was depleted using siRNA. The tumor progression was evaluated with a mouse xenograft model.

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.

#108 Everolimus (RAD001) induces tumor response in patients with medullary thyroid cancer: an in vivo and in vitro study
Introduction: Medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) is a neuroendocrine tumor (NET) of the thyroid C cells which is known to express somatostatin receptors. Octreotide, a somatostatin analogue exerting both antisecretory and antitumor activity in different types of NETs, has shown low efficacy in MTC. Everolimus (RAD001), an inhibitor of mTOR, has shown antitumor effects in patients with NETs and synergistic effects when combined with octreotide. Until recently, RAD001 has never been evaluated in MTC.

#19 Antitumor activity of Pasireotide (SOM230) alone and in combination with Everolimus (RAD001) in DU-145 human prostate cancer model
Introduction: Pasireotide (SOM230) is a novel multi-receptor ligand somatostatin analogue with high affinity for somatostatin receptor subtypes sst1,2,3 and sst5. Like octreotide, which binds primarily to sst2, it inhibits hypersecretion of hormones from patients with functional pituitary tumors and gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine (GEP/NET) tumors. In addition, tumor shrinkage has been observed with both compounds in patients with acromegaly, Cushing’s disease and GEP/NETs, but its tumor-reducing mechanism of action has so far not been revealed. In patients with breast and liver cancer, octreotide had little or no antitumor activity.
