The pan-TRK Inhibitor GNF5837 Inhibits Cell Viability and Akt and MAPK Signaling in Human Neuroendocrine GOT1 Tumor Cells Abstract #874

Introduction: The tropomyosin receptor kinase family (TRKA, TRKB, TRKC) effects tumor cell growth in various models. Recent preclinical studies in neuroendocrine carcinoma of the lung cell lines have shown that Trk receptors might be a therapeutic target for neuroendocrine neoplasias.
Aim(s): Therefore, we investigated the antitumoral activity of the pan-Trk inhibitor GNF5837 (Tocris Bioscience) in different human neuroendocrine tumor (NET) cell lines.
Materials and methods: Human neuroendocrine pancreatic BON1 cells, bronchopulmonary H727 cells and midgut GOT1 cells were treated with different concentrations of GNF5837 (0.1 nM – 500nM) and the effects on cell viability (Cell Titer 96 Proliferation Assay, Promega) and signaling pathways (Western Blot analysis) were examined.

#16 Endoglin as indicator of metastatic neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas are rare, highly vascularized tumors. Endoglin, a Transforming Growth Factor-β co-receptor, is a marker for angiogenic endothelial cells. Angiogenesis is required for tumor progression and the development of metastases. Recently, endoglin expression was found to be a prognostic marker in pancreatic carcinomas. However, the role of endoglin in neuroendocrine pancreatic tumors has so far not been studied.

#26 Molecular imaging of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours with Ga-68 DOTANOC PET/CT and correlation with an immunhistochemical quantification of somatostatin receptors using novel monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies
Introduction: Receptor PET/CT with somatostatin analogues marked with Gallium-68 (SMS-R-PET/CT) is currently the golden standard in diagnosing gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET), which are known for an overexpression of somatostatin receptors (SSTRs).

#120 Somatostatin receptors 1-5 expression in a large series of well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: For their antisecretive and antiproliferative effect somatostatin analogs (SA) have been used in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), based on the expression of somatostatin receptors (sstRs). The potential availability of new SA for the treatment of patients with NETs suggests a better characterization of sstRs.

#161 Low Dose Multiple Cycle (LD/MT) Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy: a new concept for the treatment of well-differentiated metastatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: It has been shown experimentally that low dose radiation can effectively kill slow growing cancer cells. Also, external beam radiation therapy applies a fractionated delivery of radiation dose to reduce toxicity with equal or even better therapeutic efficacy.
