  • 100PRPS6 through the activation of NRF2 causes resistance to antiHER2
           drugs in HER2 amplified gastric cancer (GC) models
    • Authors: Gambardella V; Valiente F, Tarazona N, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Molecular mechanisms responsible for resistance to targeted agents are no longer clear and need to be clarified. Many pathways have been stressed to be responsible for acquired resistance in HER2 amplified GC, among them, PI3K/AKT/mTOR plays a relevant role. NRF2 was recently identified as a possible mechanism implicated in resistance to chemotherapy.

  • 101PInvolvement of miR-99a in resistance to chemotherapy in
           triple-negative breast cancer
    • Authors: Garrido-Cano I; Pattanayak B, Adam-Artigues A, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Breast cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer among women worldwide, and also the leading cause of women death in developed countries. Among the different breast cancer subtypes, triple-negative breast cancer is the most aggressive one. Those patients can be treated with cytotoxic therapies, but the most of them develop resistance against those drugs. Due to this reason, it is important to study new therapeutic approaches to increase the efficacy of chemotherapy. Herein, microRNAs have a major role in tumoral cell regulation as well as in drug resistance. Our aim was to determine which microRNAs are differentially expressed by MDA-MB-231 cells and MDA-MB-231 cells with acquired resistance to doxorubicin.

  • 102PMuscleblind-like 1 regulates epithelial to mesenchymal transition
           markers in triple-negative breast cancer
    • Authors: Adam Artigues A; Tormo E, Cerro-Herreros E, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Muscleblind-like 1 (MBNL1) has been deeply investigated because its implication in myotonic dystrophy. However, the role of RNA-binding proteins in breast cancer remains unknown. Recent findings suggest the role of MBNL1 as a suppressor of metastasis by stabilization of other genes in triple-negative breast cancer cell lines.

  • 104PStudy of toxicity of the conventional treatments in myeloproliferative
           neoplasms, based on the functional status of the RUNX1/CBF-BETA/P300/HIPK2
    • Authors: Lozano Asencio C; Cervera Vidal R, Climent Bataller J, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are clonal hematological malignancies with an inherent tendency to progress to acute leukemia, after a variable period of time. Although the mechanisms involved in the disease transformation are still unclear, it´s known that transcription factor RUNX1 (AML1) is frequently deregulated in human leukemia, and recently, it has been described that the activity of RUNX1 together with CBF-β cofactor is regulated by the proteins p300 and HIPK2. In fact, HIPK2 phosphorylates both RUNX1 and p300, activating the whole transcriptional complex. Therefore, the study of the status of this complex seems to be interesting in order to understand the mechanisms involved in the leukemic transformation.

  • 105PGlycolytic enzymes lactate dehydrogenase A (LDHA) and
           phosphofructokinase P (PFKP) are good biomarkers of survival and potential
           therapeutic targets in cervical cancer
    • Authors: Bolaños L; Espinoza A, Alfaro A, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Cervical Cancer (CC) is the fourth most common cancer in women worldwide. Potential biomarkers in cancer can be identified by considering the changes in tumoral glycolysis. In this work, we investigated whether the expression of some glycolytic enzymes is associated with the overall and disease-free survival of patients with CC.

           non-serous gynaecological cancers
    • Authors: Ryan A; Cruz S, Miller R, et al.
      Abstract: Background: The vast majority of PARPi clinical trial experience in gynaecological cancer is for patients with platinum sensitive high grade serous ovarian carcinoma (HGSOC) and deleterious BRCA1/2 mutations. It is known that other homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) associated mutations exist eg RAD51, BRIP1 that can potentially sensitise to PARPi. Extremely limited clinical data exists on the use of PARPi in HGSOC with HRD mutations other than BRCA1/2; or in BRCA-mutated gynaecological cancers excluding HGSOC. We investigated the role of PARPi in a cohort of patients with non-BRCA and/or non-high grade serous (HGS) gynaecological cancer.

    • Authors: Imyanitov E; Ivantsov A, Lavdovskaia E, et al.
      Abstract: Background: EGFR T790M mutation is associated with acquired resistance of lung cancer (LC) to first-generation TKIs. Several studies suggest that LCs often contain a small fraction of T790M-mutated cells even before the treatment, and the persistence of these mosaic clones renders poor tumor response to gefitinib or erlotinib.

      Abstract: Background: The epidemiology of ovarian cancer in Romania is not well characterized and only few limited regional data are available. Moreover, the BRCA status in patients with homologous recombination-deficient tumorsis not known and no data about dominant founder mutations exist. BRCA1/2 are tumor suppression genes critical to DNA repair through homologous recombination in response to DNA damage. Around 13% of high-grade serous ovarian cancers is attributable to germline BRCA mutations.

      Abstract: Background: Anemia not only impairs the quality of life of patients, but it leads to tumor hypoxia, resistance to therapy and reduces survival. Although recombinant Epo has revolutionized the treatment of anemia, clinical trials suggested a potential adverse effect of Epo on tumor recurrence and patient survival. Previously we identified altered EpoR mRNA transcripts in breast cancer cells lacking ligand binding domain exon 1-3 sequences in vitro. Our hypothesis is that altered expression of these proteins may be associated with unique clinicopathologic features.

Investigation of the 6-PGD inhibition by selective small-molecule compound named Physcion is likely to be studied. However, there is a problem with selection of a less toxic solvent due to hydrophobicity of Physcion. This study was designed to optimize conditions and to study features of a combined action of cisplatin and Physcion on cell lines of pancreatic cancer AsPC-1 and lung carcinoma H1299.

    • Authors: Litchfield K; Swanton C, Turajlic S.
      Abstract: Background: While next-generation sequencing (NGS) has been applied to thousands of solid tumors to date, there exists a fundamental undersampling bias inherent in current methodologies. This is caused by a biopsy input sample of fixed dimensions, which becomes grossly under-powered as tumor volume scales. Indeed, analysis of pan-cancer data reveals that current protocols sample on average only 1.5% of cancer cells, decreasing to 0.3% for stage IV tumors. Failure to address this bias risks undermining the clinical utility of genomic medicine in cancer.

    • Authors: Heydt C; Pappesch R, Stecker K, et al.
      Abstract: Background: In recent years, parallel sequencing technologies have become integrated into daily clinical practice. Many institutions use amplicon-based approaches for the detection of somatic mutations. However, these assays do not routinely detect chromosomal aberrations or copy number changes (CNVs), which are still widely analysed by FISH and IHC, and struggle with de novo fusions. The development of new technologies to detect all therapeutically relevant genomic alterations in a single assay is an ongoing process. This study aimed to evaluate the TruSight Tumor 170 assay, a hybrid capture-based assay, for the simultaneous detection of somatic gene mutations, gene fusions and CNVs and its implementation into routine diagnostics.

Grown as organoids, primary cells can be kept in culture long-term without the requirement for immortalization or genetic alterations. In this study, we report the establishment of organoids derived of Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinomas (HNSCCs), which are tumors that arise from the squamous epithelium lining the oral cavity, pharynx and larynx. Overall five-year survival of patients diagnosed with this tumor is poor, and although many of the mutations detected in these tumors are therapeutically targetable, introduction of these treatment into the clinic has failed.

    • Authors: Rudenko V; Kazakova S, Tanas A, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is an "epigenetic" disease in the sense that the most common mutations in AML are somatic mutations in genes that regulate DNA methylation and demethylation. An aberrant DNA methylation distribution is a functional event in the process of leukemogenesis and a target of epigenetic therapy. Although epigenetic drugs (demethylating agents, histone deacetylase inhibitors) have been already used in the clinic for AML treatment, they do not provide point activation of the target region. Epigenetic variants of AML typical for children are particularly poorly understood.

      Abstract: Background: Despite recent advances, early high-risk HER2-positive breast cancers (BC) have a risk of relapse close to 20%, with no validated prognostic biomarker. Circulating tumour DNA has been described to have a prognostic value for some early BC. Most published studies monitored mutations previously identified on tumour tissue. An alternate way to monitor plasma from patients with HER2-positive BC might be to look for ERBB2/HER2 amplification.

  • 3PAutotaxin: A possible new biological marker of endometrial cancer
    • Authors: de Nola R; di Naro E, Schonauer L, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Endometrial cancer is the most common neoplasm of the female genital tract in Western Countries, with an incidence of 150000 new cases/year. Despite its high frequency, limited data are available about its molecular features. It is known that phospholipids play a key role in the cellular proliferation and dissemination in many human diseases. Some previous studies have demonstrated the importance of the lysophosphosphatidic acids’ (LPAs) metabolism and their signalling pathways in human endometrial cells. LPAs are produced via phospholipase A2 (PLA2) and phospholipase D (PLD), also known as autotaxin (ATX).

      Abstract: Background: Cancer-associated thrombosis (CAT) is one of the most threatening complications of cancer. Many questions are as yet unsolved in this field, from pathogenesis to clinical management. One of the most interesting issues is the role of oncogenes and oncosuppressors as link between carcinogenesis and CAT. There is much evidence on in vitro capacity of some oncogenes to enhance the clotting system, but less clinical evidence of association between cancer mutational status and risk of thromboembolic events. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between mutational status of genes commonly analysed and risk of CAT.

  • 49TiPPersonalized neoadjuvant strategy in luminal A breast cancer to
           increase BCS rate (PLATO study)
    • Authors: Han W.
      Abstract: Background: The most important and well-established benefit of neoadjuvant therapy for breast cancer patients is increased breast conservation rate. However, in luminal A type breast cancer, the response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NCT) is not as good as other subtype of breast cancer, such as HER-2 or triple-negative breast cancer. In addition, with the advancement of multi gene assay tools for this subtype, adjuvant chemotherapy is not needed at all in significant proportion of this luminal A subtype. Through a selective neoadjuvant therapy, either chemotherapy or endocrine therapy using histopathologic markers and 70-gene assay (Mammaprint. Agendia inc.), we hypothesize that we could increase the breast conservation rate in lumnal A type breast cancer.

  • 50PA novel acetylated derivative of vitexin improves the immunogenic
           profile of breast cancer through tuning miR-20a/MICA Axis
    • Authors: Awad A; Youness R, Ibrahim M, et al.
      Abstract: Background: The activating immune ligand, MICA, acts as a “kill me” signal through the NKG2D receptor expressed on natural killer (NK) cells that are key players in the fight against breast cancer (BC). Shedding of MICA during BC progression acts as a formidable barrier against NK cells' immune-surveillance. Recently, miR-20a was found to mediate immune escape through repressing MICA levels on BC cells. However, targeting miR-20a/MICA using natural compounds has seldomly been investigated. Vitexin, a flavone C-glycoside, showed potent anticancer properties. It was reported that acetylation of glycosides increases their cytotoxic activity, with an unknown impact on immunogenicity. Our group has successfully isolated 3'-O-acetylvitexin from Ocimum basilicum which showed potent cytotoxic effects against colon cancer cells but has never been investigated in BC. Our aim is to unravel the role of the immunogenic miR-20a/MICA axis in BC patients and its regulation by vitexin and 3'-O-acetylvitexin.

    • Authors: Napolitano F; Di Mauro C, Pesapane A, et al.
      Abstract: Background: In recent years, immunotherapy has shown remarkable success in the treatment of several cancers. Masking PDL-1 on cancer cellular surface or PD1 on T-cells may increase the lymphocyte activity against the tumor. Intracellular regulation of PDL-1 may thus be a promising therapeutic strategy. However, the mechanism regulating PDL-1 expression remains unclear. Moreover, there are evidences supporting the idea that deregulation of Hedgehog (Hh) signalling has a role in immunity and inflammation. Therefore, we investigated whether activation of the Hh signalling contributes to regulate PDL-1 or PD1 expression and whether its pharmacological modulation affects the anti-tumor function of activated lymphocytes.

           against breast cancer
    • Authors: Youness R; Assal R, Abdelmotaal A, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Despite the clinical success of immune checkpoint inhibitors in Breast Cancer (BC), yet, the incidence of poor clinical responses in some patients had recently appeared in the clinics suggesting the emergence of drug resistance. Recent research has shifted towards innate immunity highlighting the promise of natural killer cells (NKs) as a more directed immunotherapeutic tool. Yet, cancer cells can still evade immune recognition by NK cells by shedding NKG2D ligands. MICA and ULBP2 are among the most de-regulated NKG2D ligands in BC patients. Tumor microenvironment is also capable of dampening NKs cytotoxicity. Therefore, researchers hypothesize that a potential anti-cancer agent should disturb such triad: halt the oncogenic activity of BC cells, improve its immunogenic profile and alleviates the immune-suppressive microenvironment. miRNAs are suggested as multifunctional players tuning the expression of several targets simultaneously. Finding a novel miRNA that could efficiently halt such triad of oncogenicity was our main goal. miR-4317 is a novel miRNA that has seldomly been analyzed in oncology. Thus, our aim was to investigate the impact of miR-4317 on BC oncogenic and immunogenic profiles.

Despite of new target therapies emerged in last years patients will finally develop resistances that My be related to immune system alterations and it will lead to their death. Recent studies have shown that immunotherapy can be a critical therapeutic strategy. To identify how drugs that we use conventionally can modify the immune system at a microenvironment level is important to understand the biology of CRPC and the association with response/resistance to standard therapy, but also critical to the next future application of new immune therapeutic strategies in this setting.

           Immune biomarker evaluation
    • Authors: Villa S; Pillai M, Graham D, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Metastatic renal-cell carcinoma (mRCC) is frequently fatal within months or a low number of years. Several life-extending drugs have been developed that can help alleviate symptoms, but treatment algorithms to arrive at which drugs, and in what order, are not yet defined. The immunotherapy checkpoint inhibitor nivolumab is the most commonly used second-line treatment, when first-line VEGF inhibition using a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) is no longer effective. However, in the pivotal trial, objective response rate to nivolumab in this setting was only 25%. Currently, there are no predictive biomarkers to identify patients with mRCC who will respond to nivolumab, nor is there data on the effect of first-line TKIs on patient’s likelihood of responding to second-line immunotherapy. Evaluating and correlating immune and molecular characteristics from blood and tumour may identify biomarkers that predict for immunotherapy response. Differences according to a particular TKI may also be identified; these variances could influence tolerance and response to second-line immunotherapy.

    • Authors: Recondo G; Mezquita L, Bigot L, et al.
      Abstract: Background: ALK tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have shown to be effective in the treatment of patients with ALK rearranged NSCLC. The clinical benefit is eventually limited by the acquisition of resistance to ALK TKIs by tumor cells. The study of the biological mechanisms implied in tumor progression can provide the rational for therapeutic strategies to overcome resistance.

  • 5PCell-free circulating BRAF V600 mutations analysis by biochip-based
           assay and droplet digital PCR in melanoma patients
    • Authors: Emelyanova M; Telysheva E, Orlova K, et al.
      Abstract: Background: More than 50% of melanomas harbor BRAF V600 mutations and can be treated with targeted therapy. Circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) harbors the same genetic alterations as a tumor origin. The analysis of ctDNA provides diagnostic and prognostic information before, during treatment and at progression. For detection mutations in ctDNA droplet digital PCR (ddPCR) most often are used. This method is very analytically sensitive, but expensive and time-consuming.

           effects on splicing
    • Authors: Stefanovska B; Vicier C, Scott V, et al.
      Abstract: Background: The mTOR pathway has a key role in regulating cell growth and is altered in 70% of cancers. Rapalogs have become standard of care in patients with metastatic breast, kidney and neuroendocrine cancers. Nevertheless, tumor escape occurs after several months in most patients, highlighting the need to understand the mechanisms of action and resistance. Thus, we aim to identify new target genes of rapalogs that could be used as biomarkers to predict the treatment efficacy, or as therapeutic targets, to overcome resistance.

      Abstract: Background: First line therapies usually induce the longest progression free survival (PFS) in metastatic gastrointestinal cancers (GIC) as compared to subsequent lines of treatment. However, immunotherapy (IT) due to its mechanisms of action could influence sensitivity to conventional cancer therapy (CCT) after progression to IT and thereby, influence both tumor growth rate (TGR) and PFS. We have studied TGR and PFS before and after participation in phase I IT trials.

           miR-150-5p: A step towards personalised therapy in breast cancer
    • Authors: Fouad E; Youness R, Assal R, et al.
      Abstract: Background: BRCA1/2 germline mutations accompanied by somatic mutations in p53 associated genes are associated with increased risk of developing breast cancer (BC). Genes acting upstream of p53, or participating in growth arrest following DNA damage such as the BRCA1-interacting protein, ZNF350, may modify the risk of BC in women with mutant BRCA1/2 through mediating BRCA1-induced transcriptional repression of several tumor suppressor genes. As a potential BC susceptibility gene, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) may influence transcriptional repression of ZNF350 target genes and individuals’ BC risk. Moreover, rs2278414 (G/A) SNP in ZNF350 3’UTR was associated with BC onset in BRCA1/2 carriers (“A” allele hazard ratio= 2.47). We aimed at regulating rs2278414 SNP in ZNF350 by miRNAs in BC as it has never been investigated in such context.

  • 65PFLYWCH1: A novel transcription factor with tumor suppressor activity
    • Authors: Almozyan S.
      Abstract: Background: Wnt/bβ-catenin-signaling pathway is the principal force of intestinal hemostasis and morphogenesis. Aberrant activity of this pathway is highly implicated in cancer development, particularly in colorectal cancer (CRC). Although Wnt/β-catenin pathway is a well-studied pathway, the precise molecular mechanisms involved in the nuclear interactions of β-catenin with DNA-binding transcription factors (other than TCF4) are still under debates. Human FLYWCH1 has been first characterized and identified in our lab as a novel transcription factor, which interacts with nuclear β-catenin and modulates its transcriptional activity (Muhammed et al., under publication).

      Abstract: Background: The poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors appear to be a promising treatments strategy in BRCA-associated and/or sporadic triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) due to the molecular heterogeneity of TNBC and the lack of defined molecular targets. However, there is no studies on the association between BMN 673 (talazoparib) efficacy, which is a novel and the most potent PARP1/2 inhibitor, and BRCA mutation status in TNBC. In the current study, we aimed to determine the cytotoxic and apoptotic effects of BMN 673 on TNBC cell lines according to BRCA mutational status.

           221/222- 3p in glioma
    • Authors: Malik N; Chattopadhyay P, Sarkar C, et al.
      Abstract: Background: FAT1 is a transmembrane protein helps in adhesion. FAT1 gene is localized at chromosome 4q35.2 encoding a 506KDa. The role of FAT1 in tumors is not fully characterized. Few reports suggest it behaves as a tumor suppressive and few reported it as an oncogenic. miRNAs are noncoding RNAs which bind to the 3’UTR of target mRNA and repress their expression. miR-221-3p/222-3p has been reported to have oncogenic role and targets tumor suppressors (e.g. CDKN1B, PTEN, PUMA etc.) in many cancers including GBM. Here, we have investigated the role of FAT1 gene in the regulation of miRNAs in glioblastoma.

    • Authors: Cervera Vidal R; Lozano Asencio C, Tébar Martinez R, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Breast cancer is a complex and heterogeneous disease where the patients present the same symptoms and suffer the same disease, but due to different genetic reasons. Breast cancer recurrence is one of the biggest morbidity causes in patients that suffer the disease, and 15-20% of them will develop triple-negative breast cancer tumors (TN). The mortality of patients harbouring TN tumors is higher comparing with other tumor subtypes, in part, due to the difficulty of getting personalized treatments, where chemotherapy is the standard treatment. These data show the need to look for new drug strategy, where clinical, genetics and molecular data could be integred and compared, in order to predict more accurate treatment responses. Here we study the role of the gene ATDC, previously related with radioresistance, in TN breast cancer cell lines treated with Doxorubicin.

    • Authors: Jiang L; Jiang S, Wang L.
      Abstract: Background: Lung cancer is the leading causes of cancer-related deaths globally. The most frequent histologic type of lung cancer is non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), accounting for approximate 85%. NSCLC is notoriously aggressive, and tumors often undergo epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), a process required for invasion and metastasis. The components that control this process are thus promising therapeutic targets. This study examines the role of Sonic Hedgehog (SHh)/Gli pathway signaling in the regulation of EMT in NSCLC.

           angiomyolipoma and insulinoma tumors, supporting their responsiveness to
           mTOR inhibitors
    • Authors: Anoshkin K; Vasilyev I, Mosyakova C, et al.
      Abstract: Background: The products of TSC1 and TSC2 genes, hamartin and tuberin respectively, form a complex that is the natural inhibitor of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR). Mutations in these genes are associated with such diseases as tuberous sclerosis (TS) and lymphangioleiomyomatosis, for which the main pharmacologic treatment at present is everolimus, the mTOR kinase inhibitor. Benign tumors like renal angiomyolipoma and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) can occur in tuberous sclerosis in 70% and 10% patients, respectively, but the overwhelming majority of them is sporadic. Despite the benign character, these tumors can be life-threatening. At the present time, the pathogenesis of sporadic renal angiomyolipoma (sRA) and PNETs is largely unknown but is growing as a research topic. Referring to cases of the tumors that occur in tuberous sclerosis, we assumed that TSC1 and TSC2 genes might play a key role in the development of sRA and PNETs.

      Abstract: Background: Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors (PARPi) indicate the synthetically lethal effect in BRCA-defective breast cancers. BMN 673 has attracted considerable attention as the most potent PARPi with the highest PARP trapping efficiency. However, several mechanisms of PARPi resistance have been described in the literature. Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) represent a promising new strategy to overcome resistance mechanisms due to unique features including their unique size and stability etc. In the present study, we aimed to determine a potential therapeutic effect of BMN 673 loaded SLNs formulation on homologous recombination (HR) in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).

           inhibitor resistance in melanoma
    • Authors: Borg T; Patel A, Bergamaschi D, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Melanoma progression is often characterized by mutations in the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and phosphoinositol-3-kinase (PI3K) pathways. Understanding regulation of these pathways has led to the development of novel targeted therapies which show high response rates. However, many patients relapse with ensuing resistant disease. P63, a p53 homologue, carries a poorer prognosis when overexpressed. In keratinocytes, degradation could be regulated by two ubiquitin ligases, MDM2 and FBXW7. This project explored the expression of p63, MDM2 and FBXW7 in MAPK-inhibitor (MAPKi) sensitive and resistant melanoma cell lines.

Leukotriene B4 receptors 1 and 2 (LTB4R and LTB4R2) have been suggested to regulate tumor progression by promoting cell proliferation, survival, migration and metastasis. LTB4R2 was reported to increase invasiveness of breast cancer (BC) cells through IL-8 (interleukin-8) pathway. The inhibitors of leukotriene receptors have been suggested for use in anti-cancer therapy.

           Characterization by immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization
    • Authors: Feng J; Ebata K, Hansen F, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Neurotrophic tyrosine receptor kinases (NTRK1-3) are a gene family encoding kinases involved in development and maturation of the central and peripheral nervous system. In cancer, fusion of one of these genes with various upstream partners leads to aberrant protein expression and unchecked proliferation. Identification of tumors driven by TRK fusions is clinically relevant because they can be targeted by highly selective small molecule inhibitors. Pan-TRK immunohistochemical (IHC) staining for aberrant expression of TRK proteins may be an important approach to identify tumors with TRK fusions when followed by confirmation. We describe the expression, both wild-type (WT) and fusion, of TRK proteins in 19 solid tumors.

    • Authors: Habashy D; Hosny K, Esmat G, et al.
      Abstract: Background: The long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) highly up-regulated in liver cancer (HULC) was identified as an oncogenic noncoding RNA that contributed to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) progression. Generally, lncRNAs have been shown to act as a sponge for microRNAs, hindering them from performing their actions. Recent study has shown that HULC sequester miR-186, meanwhile its expression was repressed by it. Our bioinformatics revealed that miR-186 targets HULC and the insulin-like growth factor 2-mRNA-binding protein-1 (IGF2BP1) which was shown to degrade HULC and to stabilize IGF1R in HCC. Therefore, we aimed at investigating the impact of miR-186 on IGF2BP1 and hence on HULC in liver cancer in attempt to unravel the underlying mechanism by which HULC enhances hepatocarcinogenesis.

  • 87PMir-506-3p synergistically represses breast cancer progression through
           altering cell cycle regulators
    • Authors: Saad El Din G; Youness R, Assal R, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Mounting evidence demonstrated the potential of miR-506-3p to be employed in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of human malignancies due to its differential expression pattern and distinct biological roles. Despite the pivotal tumor suppressor role miR-506-3p plays in breast cancer (BC), it is frequently downregulated. Moreover, its role in governing cell cycle progression was not extensively studied in BC. Myc, E2F and Rb proteins are key players in cell cycle regulation. In BC, the CDK-RB-E2F axis is extensively deregulated by several genetic mutations. Additionally, the potent proto-oncogene Myc is highly expressed in BC. Thus, we aimed at uncovering the role miR-506-3p plays in cell cycle regulation in BC.

  • 88PCrosstalk between hesperetin and miR-486-5p in triple-negative breast
           cancer (TNBC): An approach towards precision medicine
    • Authors: Abdallah R; Youness R, El Meckawy N, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Hesperetin an aglycone extracted from citrus fruits, acts as a novel therapeutic agent in breast cancer (BC). TNBC patients showed the most heterogeneous molecular profiles portrayed with inferior overall survival. This highlights the emerging need of precision medicine to unravel the inter-wined molecular circuits in TNBC patients. Our group has uncovered the tumor suppressor activity of miR-486-5p in liver cancer and BC. However, its role in tuning the metastatic behaviour of TNBC cells remains to be unveiled. This study aims at investigating the interplay of hesperitin and miR-486-5p as a novel therapeutic approach towards achieving a personalized treatment code for TNBC patients.

  • 8TiPCirculating tumour DNA as an early marker of recurrence and treatment
           efficacy in ovarian carcinoma, the CIDOC study
    • Authors: Sabatier R; Pomel C, Colombo P, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Ovarian carcinomas (OvC) are the fifth cause of death by cancer in women and display a very poor prognosis (5-y survival of 30%). Genomic alterations involved in OvC can be identified only by invasive tumour sampling using surgical procedures or guided-biopsies, and are thus not easily monitored during treatment and follow-up. In the last years, circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) has been explored in many fields for several tumour localizations. Concerning OvC, ctDNA detection is feasible and its correlation with response to treatment has been mentioned for relapsing disease. However, the capacity of ctDNA to be an early marker of relapse has not been described.

  • 91PA major response to carboplatin in a metastatic triple-negative breast
           cancer patient with somatic mutation of BRCA1 and RAD51B: When
           chemotherapy meets precision medicine
    • Authors: Seguin L; Chaffanet M, Sabatier R, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Recent clinical data indicate a higher pathological complete response rate when platinum is added to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), and favorable outcomes have also been observed in metastatic TNBC patients treated with platinum-based regimen. BC associated with germline BRCA mutations display DNA double-strand break repair defects, which are thought to render them particularly sensitive to DNA repair targeting drugs such as PARP inhibitors and/or platinum analogs. In addition, BRCA1/2 genes promoter methylation, somatic mutation, as well as other genomic alterations in DNA repair genes may also drive homologous recombination-deficiency (HRD) and the so-called “BRCAness” phenotype. Yet, their association with sensitivity to platinum derivatives or PARP inhibitors in BC remains discussed.

  • 92PNext-generation sequencing reveals high intra-individual molecular
           concordance between primary head and neck tumors and matched local or
           distant recurrences
    • Authors: Martin N; Ebran-Bendahhou N, Boyer J, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Recurrent or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is an uncurable disease and is responsible of 4 000 deaths every year in France. Targeted therapies improve outcomes in several types of cancer and lead to development of the prescription of drugs according to the molecular features of the tumor, called “precision medicine”. The need to perform recent biopsy to perform those molecular analyses is a critical restriction and limits inclusion of patients into precision medicine programs.

  • 93PDecreasing telomerase activity of adenocarcinoma cancer cell line (AGS)
           is associated with different concentrations of sodium selenite and cadmium
           chloride and selenium l methionine
    • Authors: Hosseini-Asl S; Fazabakhsh A, Sagha M.
      Abstract: Background: Selenium (Se) has been recognized as an essential element for animals and humans. In the late 1960s, it was first suggested that selenium might have anti-cancer properties. Selenium controls apoptosis in cell cycle. Cadmium (Cd) is a widely used heavy metal that affects human health through occupational and environmental exposure and has been reported as a cause of cancers such as lung, prostate and kidney. The previous studies on Ovarian and breast cancer have shown that cadmium increases telomerase activity and expression level of hTERT. In the present study, we find out the effect of sodium selenite and selenium l methionine and cadmium chloride on telomerase activity in adenocarcinoma cancer cell line (AGS).

  • 94PMolecular testing of gliomas
    • Authors: Konvalinka D; Mech R, Urbanovska I, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Gliomas are the most frequent CNS primary tumours, which account for up to 80 % of brain malignancies. Important diagnostic and prognostic factor, and recently significant WHO glioma classification marker as well, is mutational status of IDH1/2 genes. Moreover, search for another markers with predictive character is needed. Methylation status of MGMT gene promoter is one of relevant predictive markers, connected with therapeutic response to chemotherapy.

  • 95PFirst report of ZNF518B gene expression as a prognostic factor in
           colorectal cancer development: Role in tissue invasiveness
    • Authors: Valiente F; Riffo-Campos A, Cervantes A, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Colorectal cancer (CRC) represents a relevant public health problem. Despite new therapeutic advances, prognosis of patients diagnosed with advanced disease is still poor. The identification of new markers involved in the mechanisms of invasiveness represents a priority in order to better understand cancer development and generate new therapeutic targets. We describe here the possible role of ZNF518B, a gene not yet well characterised, on tissue invasion. Human ZNF518B gene, which encodes a putative, zinc finger-containing transcription factor, yields two major alternative splicing isoforms.

  • 96PERBB2 and PI3KCA mutations in endocrine resistant breast cancer (BC)
    • Authors: Venturelli M; Toss A, Piacentini F, et al.
      Abstract: Background: An increasing number of molecularly targeted drugs are now available and, for some of these therapies, predictive biomarkers have already been identified. In particular, mutations in ERBB2 might represent an alternative mechanism for HER2 activation. They occur more frequently in HER2-negative (HER2-) tumors and seem to be good target for HER2 therapy. Furthermore, PI3KCA mutations showed to predict sensitivity to Fulvestrant, Buparlisib, Taselisib and resistance to Lapatinib. We evaluated the incidence of ERBB2 and PI3KCA mutations in 14 hormone receptor (HR)-positive BC and in their matched endocrine-resistant recurrences.

  • 9ONovel mechanism of platinum resistance: Rapid selection of pre-existing
           BRCA1-proficient tumor cells during neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) for
           ovarian cancer (OC) in BRCA1 germ-line mutation carriers
    • Authors: Imyanitov E; Savonevich E, Ivantsov A, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Cancers arising in BRCA1 mutation carriers are highly sensitive to cisplatin due to somatic inactivation of the wild-type BRCA1 allele. Accordingly, BRCA1-driven OCs usually respond well to NACT and therefore almost always undergo complete cytoreduction. However, despite this seemingly effective treatment and continuation of platinum therapy in the adjuvant setting, almost all BRCA1-associated OCs inevitably relapse.
