Expression of Somatostatin Receptors and Dopamine 2 Receptor in Lung Carcinoids as a Possible Biotherapy Target Abstract #245

Introduction: Expression of somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) and dopamine 2 receptor (D2R) in neuroendocrine tumors is of clinical importance, as somatostatin analogues and dopamine agonists are used in biotherapy.
Aim(s): To examine the expression of the five SSTR subtypes and D2R in lung carcinoids (LCs).
Materials and methods: Tumor specimens from 87 patients with primary LCs (typical n=73, and atypical n=14) were included. The expression of all SSTR subtypes and D2R was evaluated immunohistochemically, and statistically correlated to tumor type. The tumors were considered positive if receptor immunoreactivity appeared in the majority of the tumor cells.

#911 Immunohistochemical Expression of Connective Tissue Growth Factor and Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 in Lung Carcinoids
Introduction: Several studies have shown altered expression of Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) and its receptor (IGF-1R) in different types of cancers. Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF) is triggered by Serotonin (5-HT) and Hypoxia Induced Factor 1 (HIF-1) and has been associated with tumor expansion and desmoplastic reaction in carcinoid tumors.
