Sunitinib for the treatment of advanced, progressive pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors Abstract #127

Introduction: Sunitinib is an oral, multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor approved for use in advanced renal cell carcinoma and imatinib-resistant/intolerant gastrointestinal stromal tumors. Investigations of sunitinib in the RIP1-Tag2 mouse model and in phase I/II clinical trials provide evidence of antitumor activity against pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NET).
Aim(s): This phase III, multinational, randomised, double-blind trial (NCT00428597) investigated the efficacy and safety of sunitinib v. placebo in patients with advanced pancreatic NET.
Materials and methods: Eligible patients had local, locally advanced, or metastatic, well-differentiated pancreatic endocrine tumors and documented disease progression within the past 12 months. Patients were randomized (1:1) to sunitinib 37.5 mg/day continuous daily dosing or placebo. Patients also received best supportive care and somatostatin analogues if indicated. The primary endpoint was progression-free survival (PFS); target enrollment was 340 patients with 260 PFS events. Secondary endpoints included overall survival (OS), objective response rate (ORR) and safety.

#2682 PAK4-NAMPT Dual Inhibition as a Novel Strategy for Therapy Resistant Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) remain an unmet clinical need. In this study, we show that targeting both nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) and p21-activated kinase 4 (PAK4) could become a synthetic lethal strategy for PNET.

#2685 Apatinib Inhibits Tumor Growth and Angiogenesis in PNET Models
Introduction: Angiogenesis has a pivotal role in the growth and metastasis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). Apatinib inhibits angiogenesis as a highly selective KDR inhibitor and has been used to treat advanced gastric cancer and malignancies in clinical settings. However, the efficacy of apatinib in PNETs remains unclear.
