Abstract [en]

Concomitant chemoradiotherapy is a common treatment for advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC). Cisplatin is the backbone of chemotherapy regimens used to treat HNSCC. Therefore, the aim of this study was to identify predictive markers for cisplatin treatment outcome in HNSCC. The intrinsic cisplatin sensitivity (ICS) was determined in a panel of tumour cell lines. From this panel, one sensitive and two resistant cell lines were selected for comparative transcript profiling using microarray analysis. The enrichment of Gene Ontology (GO) categories in sensitive versus resistant cell lines were assessed using the Gene Ontology Tree Machine bioinformatics tool. In total, 781 transcripts were found to be differentially expressed and 11 GO categories were enriched. Transcripts contributing to this enrichment were further analyzed using Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA) for identification of key regulator genes. IPA recognized 20 key regulator genes of which five were differentially expressed in sensitive versus resistant cell lines. The mRNA level of these five genes was further assessed in a panel of 25 HNSCC cell lines using quantitative real-time PCR. Among these key regulators, MMP-7 and MMP-13 are implicated as potential biomarkers of ICS. Taken together, genome-wide transcriptional analysis identified single genes, GO categories as well as molecular networks that are differentially expressed in HNSCC cell lines with different ICS. Furthermore, two novel predictive biomarkers for cisplatin resistance, MMP-7 and MMP-13, were identified.

Abstract [en]

Head and neck cancer is a common malignancy with approximately 600 000 new cases yearly. Disappointingly, the overall survival has not increased over the last decades. The concept of personalized medicine, i.e. to treat every patient with an individually planned treatment regime has gathered increased interest, but requires the establishment of novel biomarkers that can predict treatment response.

The aim of this thesis is to propose novel predictive single markers or combinations of markers of response to radiation, cisplatin and cetuximab. The general methodology is to evaluate common differences of cell lines resistant to radiation, cisplatin or cetuximab compared to sensitive counterparts.

In paper I, we analysed the expression of 14 proteins involved in growth control and/or apoptosis by western blot and related them to intrinsic radiosensitivity (IR) in nine cell lines. No factor had a significant correlation to IR on its own. A combination of EGFR, survivin, Bak, Smad4, and Hsp70 had the best correlation to IR (R=0.886, p=0.001). Additionally, we analysed the presence of p53 mutations in the cell lines. All cell lines had at least one missense, splice site or loss of transcript mutation. To be able to combine protein expression and presence of p53 mutations we created a system designated the number of negative points (NNP). With this system we could extract that expression of EGFR, survivin, and p53 missense or splice site mutations had the best correlation to IR (R=0.990, p<0.001).

In paper II we conducted a gene expression microarray analysis of three cell lines, from which common deregulations in two cisplatin resistant cell lines was compared to a cisplatin sensitive cell line. From a bioinformatic approach of gene ontology and molecular network analysis, we defined a transcriptional profile of 20 genes. Finally, key findings were analysed in a larger panel of cell lines, where high MMP-7 expression correlated with higher cisplatin resistance.

Paper III compared 4 cell lines with high IR to a radiosensitive equivalent. Using a similar bioinformatic approach as paper II, we established a transcriptional profile of 14 genes. Analysis in a larger panel of cell lines revealed that FN1 expression predicts higher IR.

Paper IV establishes the cetuximab sensitivity of 35 cell lines of which 12 were resistant and five were sensitive to cetuximab. After whole genome gene copy number analysis of five cetuximab resistant and five cetuximab sensitive cell lines, and verification of key findings in a larger cell line panel, the results show that the amplification of the YAP1 gene is coupled to cetuximab resistance.

In summary, this thesis proposes a number of novel markers of resistance to radiation, cisplatin, and cetuximab which could influence treatment choice in the future, following verifications in primary tumor material.

Abstract [en]

Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) poses a major health problem in the world with approximately 600 000 new cases yearly. Treatment resistance is a major problem within this patient group and despite advances in treatment strategies the overall survival rate has unfortunately not increased.

One of the major components of the tumor microenvironment is the cancer associated fibroblasts (CAFs) which can modulate the treatment sensitivity, tumor growth, and the invasive potential of tumor cells.

The aim of this thesis was to identify predictive markers for treatment response in HNSCC and to study the crosstalk between tumor cells and CAFs that may underlie treatment resistance.

In paper I, we identified gene expression differences between one cisplatin sensitive cell line and two cisplatin resistant cell lines, by microarray analysis, and found that a high expression of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) -7 was associated with resistance to cisplatin. In paper II, the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor ligands EGF, amphiregulin, and epiregulin were evaluated regarding their potential use as predictive biomarkers for cetuximab treatment response in tongue cancer cell lines and it was shown that EGF may serve as a marker for poor cetuximab response. In paper III and IV, we investigated the influence of CAFs on the proliferation, migration, gene expression, and cetuximab response of tumor cells. It was found that CAFs induced resistance to cetuximab in a MMP-dependent manner. In addition, a microarray analysis, comparing tumor cells co-cultured with CAFs and tumor cells cultured alone, revealed that CAFs induced multiple gene expression changes in tumor cells some of which are related to epithelial to mesenchymal transition. Some of these changes were found to be dependent on cell-cell contact.

Taken together, we here suggest MMP-7 and EGF to be predictive markers of cisplatin and cetuximab response, respectively. We also show that CAFs protect HNSCC cells from cetuximab treatment; however, the factor responsible for the protective effect is yet to be discovered.
