Clinical and Morphological Features of Extrapulmonary Small-Cell Cancer Abstract #2154

Introduction: Extrapulmonary Small-cell cancer (ESCC) is an extremely rare disease. Usually in the treatment of patients with ESCC approaches to the treatment of patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC) are used.
Aim(s): To reveal clinical and morphological features of patients with ESCC in comparison with patients with SCLC. To assess the frequency of expression of the receptors for somatostatin in patients with ESCC and SCLC.
Materials and methods: a set of two groups of patients was performed: group A of 36 patients with ESCC. All patients with ESCC have studied for expression of somatostatin receptors 2 and 5 types, levels of serotonin, chromogranin A and NSE in the serum. All patients in the first line of therapy received treatment with etoposide and platinum preparations. Group B of 52 patients with SCLC. All patients underwent the study of expression of somatostatin receptors 2 and 5 types. Patients received treatment on the basis of etoposide and platinum preparations in first line of chemotherapy.

#1115 Cancer Stem Cells in Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Cell Line P-STS: Isolation and Molecular Characterisation
Introduction: Cancer stem cells (CSCs) represent a small subpopulation of tumour cells responsible for invasive tumour growth. Even though the presence of CSCs in neuroendocrine tumours is documented, their role in neuroendocrine tumourigenesis and metastasis is not defined as yet.

#1653 Expression and Clinical Significance of Somatostatin Receptor Subtype 2A in Small Cell Lung Carcinoma
Introduction: Somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) play a key role in the regulation of cell proliferation and have been identified in a proportion of aggressive poorly differentiated neuroendocrine neoplasms, including small cell lung carcinomas (SCLCs).

#2141 Potential Role of SST5TMD4-Derived Peptides in the Malignancy of Neuroendocrine Tumors and Other Endocrine-Related Cancer Cells
Introduction: Extracellular fragments derived from membrane receptors can play relevant functional roles in certain tumoral pathologies and could provide novel diagnostic or therapeutic tools. We have identified a novel truncated somatostatin receptor type 5 variant, sst5TMD4, which is overexpressed and functionally active in different endocrine-related cancers, including neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Interestingly, sst5TMD4 has 4 transmembrane domains and its C-terminal tail is consequently exposed towards the extracellular matrix, and could, therefore, be the substrate for proteolytic enzymes.

#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.

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