Inhibition of Cyclin Dependent Kinases Overcomes MYC-Driven Secondary Resistance to Everolimus in Digestive NETs Abstract #2785

Introduction: Dysregulation of the mTOR pathway in digestive neuroendocrine tumours (d-NETs) led to the introduction of Everolimus (EVE) as treatment. EVE significantly increases PFS, but most patients acquire resistance, due to activation of feedback loops.
Aim(s): To identify key molecular pathways involved in EVE resistance acquisition.
Materials and methods: BON-1 and BON-1 EVE resistant (RR) cells, mimicking the clinical scenario of primary sensitivity and acquired resistance, were investigated by RNA-seq with validation by RT-qPCR on RNA of 16 ‘baseline’ (before EVE) and 5 ‘progression’ samples (at time of progression after EVE) of d-NETs liver metastases. Cell viability and proliferation were assessed by MTS and cell cycle evaluated by FACS analysis.

#1166 mTOR Pathway Inhibition Sensitizes Insulinoma Cells to Streptozotocin Induced Apoptosis
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) are generally chemoresistants probably due to low proliferation rate and defects in apoptotic pathway. Targeted therapies are new encouraging options for pNETs however; clinical trials show limited objective response. Combination of chemotherapy and targeted therapy could be a new solution in therapeutic care. Streptozotocin (STZ) is the 1st line of therapy for unresectable pNETs.

#860 Expression and Prognostic Role of CXCR4/CXCL12/CXCR7 and mTOR Pathways in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: The chemokine receptor CXCR4 interacts with the ligand CXCL12 to exert proliferative and chemotactic effects. CXCR4 activates mTOR through phosphorylation of its two effectors downstream:4EBP1and S6K

#726 Expression and Phosphorilation of mTOR Pathway and Antitumor Activity of mTOR Inhibitors in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) is a protein kinase involved in the control of cancer cell metabolism, growth and proliferation. The mTOR pathway has attracted broad scientific and clinical interest, particularly in light of the ongoing clinical cancer trials with mTOR inhibitors in pts with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). To identify the best candidates for treatment with mTOR inhibitors is challenging.

#921 Combined Therapy with RAD001 e BEZ235 Overcomes Resistance of PET Cells to mTOR Inhibition
Introduction: Since the PI3K/Akt/mTOR proliferation axis is often deregulated in PETs, the mTORC1 complex inhibitor Everolimus (RAD001) represents an effective treatment for PETs. However, RAD001 leads to a re-activation of PI3K activity and phosphorylation of Akt, which may promote resistance to the treatment. Thus, direct inhibition of PI3K may represent a novel potential target for PETs.

#38 Expression of mTOR signaling pathway and effects of mTOR inhibitors on its pathway in human neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET), especially well-differentiated endocrine tumors, are often slow-growing, indolent, and may not become clinically apparent until the manifestations of metastatic spread or carcinoid syndrome. Results of previous studies demonstrated that phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway may be activated in the great majority of NET cells. mTOR inhibitors are therefore considered effective anti-tumor reagents but they may also induce an activation of PI3K/Akt and MAPK pathways as a compensatory action and reduce their own anti-tumor activities.
