Detection of SSTR2 and 5 Expression on Circulating Tumour Cells in Neuroendocrine Tumours Abstract #1415

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours (NET) overexpress somatostatin receptors (SSTR) which can be targeted for therapy with somatostatin analogues (SSA) or radionuclide treatment.
Aim(s): To develop an assay to detect SSTR2 and 5 expression on CTCs in NET patients.
Materials and methods: MCF7 cells were transfected with plasmid DNA carrying human SSTR2 or 5 and spiked into donor blood for testing using the CellSearch platform. Optimum antibody concentrations and exposure times were determined. Flow cytometry was used to assess whether marker detection was affected by presence of SSA. For clinical evaluation, 7.5mls patient blood was analysed by CellSearch and SSTR2/5 immunohistochemistry (IHC) was performed on matched FFPE samples.

#2022 CXCR4 Expression on Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) and Their Association with Bone Metastases in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET)
Introduction: Bone metastases have been described in up to 32% of NET patients and are associated with a worse clinical outcome. Overexpression of CXCR4 in primary tumors appears predictive of skeletal involvement.

#922 Comparison of the Novel Cell Detector Method with Cell Search Technology in the Isolation of Circulating Tumor Cells in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) have been detected in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET) using the CellSearch platform. Their presence is associated with a worse clinical outcome but less than 50% patients have detectable cells. The GILUPI Cell Detector is an EpCAM coated wire that is inserted into a vein and has been developed to increase capture of CTCs.

#446 Comparative Expression Analysis of Somatostatin Receptor Subtypes in Human Neuroendocrine Tumors Using Two Sets of New Monoclonal Antibodies
Introduction: Expression of somatostatin receptor subtypes (sstr) is required for the successful use of somatostatin analogues (SSA) in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors (NET). Reliable detection of sstr could improve the selection of SSA treatment. Rabbit and mouse monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) were recently developed independently in Jena and Basel.
