Abstract 5450

Background

Perivascular epithelioid cell tumors (PEComa) are exceedingly rare mesenchymal neoplasms arising in a variety of anatomic sites. mTOR inhibitors are active in these neoplasms. However, no other effective treatments are available in those patients progressing to them. The PI3K–Akt–mTOR signaling pathway modulates neoplastic growth through signaling activation of ER and the EGF receptor family of receptor tyrosine kinases. ER drives PI3K/AKT activation in response to mTORC1 inhibition. This provides a rationale for combining anti-estrogens and mTORC1 inhibitors.

Methods

We retrospectively identified patients with advanced PEComa treated with mTOR inhibitors since January 2002 at Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori, Milan – Italy. In a subgroup of them, exemestane was added at the time of progression.

Results

Twenty-eight patients with advanced PEComa treated with mTOR inhibitors were identified. Twenty–six were evaluable for response. Twelve out 26 (46%) had a PR and seven (27%) a SD, with a median PFS of 7 months. At the time of progression to sirolimus, 5 patients received a combination of sirolimus and exemestane and one of sirolimus, exemestane and GnRH. Three patients out 6 had a PR, 2 out 6 had a SD, and 1 out 6 had a PD, with a median PFS of 6 months. In this subgroup of patients treated with the combination, previous PFS to mTOR inhibitors was 6.6 months.

Conclusions

In this small retrospective series, the combination of mTOR inhibitors and exemestane obtained a reversion of resistance to mTOR inhibitors in one half of patients.
