Evaluation of the Somatostatin, CXCR4 Chemokine and Endothelin A Receptor Expression in a Large Series of Paragangliomas Abstract #1347

Introduction: Paragangliomas are predominantly benign tumors, but in some cases invasive growth and also metastasis is observed. Given the limited number of nonsurgical treatment options, novel target structures for diagnostics and therapy of this tumor entity are urgently needed.
Aim(s): In the present study, the expression of the five somatostatin receptor (SSTR) subtypes as well as of the chemokine receptor CXCR4 and of the endothelin receptor A (ETA) was evaluated.
Materials and methods: Receptor expression was assessed by means of immunohistochemistry using a panel of novel rabbit monoclonal antibodies in a total of 54 paraffin-embedded paraganglioma tumor samples from 43 patients. The stainings were rated by means of the Immunoreactive Score and correlated to clinical data.

Introduction: Somatostatin receptors (SSTR) are known for their overexpression in well-differentiated GEP-NEN, whereas the chemokine receptor CXCR4 is considered to be present mainly in highly proliferative and advanced tumors.

Introduction: Somatostatin receptors (SSTR) are known for their overexpression in well-differentiated GEP-NEN, where they serve as molecular targets for different imaging and treatment modalities. The chemokine receptor CXCR4, in contrast, is present mainly in highly proliferative and advanced tumors.

#1038 Co-Expression of Somatostatin and CXCR4 Receptors as Targets for Diagnostics and Treatment in Intestinal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms.
Introduction: Somatostatin receptors (SSTR) are widely distributed in well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NET) and serve as primary targets for diagnostics and treatment. An overexpression of the chemokine receptor CXCR4, in contrast, is considered to be present mainly in highly proliferative and advanced carcinomas.

#833 The Chemokine Receptor CXCR4 – Differential Expression in Bronchopulmonary Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: The CXCR4 is a plasma membrane chemokine receptor, which is involved in organogenesis, hematopoiesis and inflammation. Additionally, an over-expression is described for many neoplastic tissues. Here, an involvement in tumor progression, metastasis, adaptation to hypoxia and in stem cell survival is postulated.
