Cancer Prevention: Translational Research in Colon Cancer Matthew R. Young Gene Regulation Section Laboratory of Cancer Prevention CCR, NCI
Translational Cancer Prevention: How do we approach Translational Research in Cancer Prevention? Colon Cancer: Anatomy of Colon Cancer Risk factors for Colon Carcinogenesis Colon Cancer Prevention: Polyp Prevention Trial (PPT) Mouse Metabolomics Cancer Stem Cells Nutrition
Molecular Targeted Carcinogenesis Prevention: Benefits at any stage. Cancer prevention prolongs the natural lifetime due to reduced death from cancer
Cancer progression: 1. Initiation can be a single mutagenic event. 2. Promotion results from chronic exposure to tumor promoters e.r. TPA, EGF, UV radiation, TNFά or stress lead to benign tumors. 3. Progression results when benign tumors progress to carcinoma. Receptors activation increases protein kinase activity, resulting in and increase in transcription factors. Translation factors lead to mis-regulation of target proteins.
TRANSLATING PREVENTION How do we approach Translational Research in Cancer Prevention? Behavior modification in the general population: Smoking cessation, Weight reduction Diet modification Exercise Drugs in high risk groups: Tamoxifen: to prevent breast cancer DFMO + Sulindac: to prevent colon cancer Aspirin: breast and colon NSAIDS (Celecoxib) Adenoma Prevention Trail Diet supplements Vaccines in the general population: HVP vaccine: to prevent cervical cancer. HBV vaccine: to prevent liver cancer Antibiotics in high risk groups: Block H-pylori induce gastric and esophageal cancer
Colon Cancer is the third most common cause of cancer-related death
Risk factors Associated with Colon Cancer African-American race.. Sedentary Life style Age Diabetes A personal history of colorectal cancer or polyps. Smoking Obesity Inflammatory intestinal conditions. Radiation Alcohol Inherited syndromes that increase colon cancer risk. Family history of colon cancer and colon polyps. Low-fiber, high-fat diet.
Trends in overweight prevalence
Stem cell niche Transit- amplifying cells Differentiated cells The Anatomy of the Colon
Normal organization of the intestinal crypt Loss of wild-type APC or β-catenin mutation Transformation of healthy crypts towards an adenoma Accumulation of other genetic lesions, RAS and PTEN, Progression towards an invasive growing CRC Myofibroblast Activated Myofibroblast HGF Myeloid cells IL-6 TNF Progression Initiation Promotion Tumor Promotion in the Colon
Stages of colon carcinogenesis ~50% of US population have adenoma(s) by age 70 years
Cancer Prevention TRANSLATING PREVENTION. Basic research uses molecular processes, molecular target identification and targeted drug discovery. Preclinical research uses target validation and target discovery as well as response biomarkers and molecular targets as endpoints. Clinical research used drug-based and dietary interventions as well as response biomarfer and molecular target identification.
The Polyp Prevention Trial (PPT) Multicenter randomized controlled trial examining the effect of a low-fat (20% of total energy intake), high-fiber (18 g/1000 kcal), high-vegetable and -fruit (5-8 daily servings) dietary pattern on the recurrence of adenomatous polyps of the large bowel, Eligibility one or more adenomas removed within 6 months complete nonsurgical polyp removal complete colonic examination age 35 years or older; no history of colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, or large bowel resection; satisfactory completion of a food frequency questionnaire and 4-day food record
P-trend: Advanced Adenoma Recurrence OR (95% CI) Q2 Q3 Q Dry Bean Intake (T(1,2,3)-T0; in g/d) Dry Bean Intake Inversely Associated with Advanced Adenoma Recurrence
Ob/Ob Obese Mice Single mutation within the Ob (leptin) gene Develop obesity, hyperphagia, hyperinsulinemia, and hyperglycemia Injected with colon carcinogen azoxymethane (AOM) to induce colon cancer Placed on diets after final AOM( injection for 40 weeks 1) Control diet (modified AIN-93G) 2) Cooked Whole navy bean diet 3) Bean Residue fraction diet 4) Bean ethanol Extract fraction diet
Navy Beans and their Fractions Decrease Colon Lesion Incidence* in AOM-Induced Obese Mice
Biomarkers that predict Colon Cancer and Efficacy of interventions in mice and humans IL-6 a response biomarker for dietary prevention of colon Carcinogenesis in Ob mice, Mentor-Marcel Can Prev Res,2009
Decrease in serum levels of IL-6 an indicator of efficacious response to bean diet
IL-6 Tnfrsf8 Stat 4 Sftpd AOM AOM + Bean extract * * * * Bean diet attenuates colon gene expression changes induced by AOM in ob/ob mice
Human Relevance of IL-6 as a Biomarker of Response to Dietary Intervention Interleukin-6 as a Potential Indicator for Dietary Prevention Of High Risk Adenoma Recurrence in the Polyp Prevention Trial, Bobe G et al, Cancer Prevention Research, 2010
Colon Carcinogenesis stages in the mouse
Day % DSS in dist. water AOM 10 mg/kg BW Mice 6 wks of age First tumors appeared Start Diet Two-Stage Colon Carcinogenesis Model AOM/DSS Mice develop ACFs, dysplastic lesions, adenomas and adenocarcinomas. Lesions have elevated b-catenin, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) activity
Polyps Detected Initial polyps Enlarge Tumor burden Unhealthy Normal Untreated Days after AOM injection MRI is useful for monitoring efficacy of dietary and/or pharmacological interventions in colon carcinogenesis
Bean Extracts and Isorhamnetin diets inhibit inflammation induced colon cancer. Isorhamnetin, Kaempferol and Bean Extracts decreased tumor burden Isorhamnetin and the Bean Extracts decreased morbidity associated with AOM/DSS treatment
Pilot study to assess efficacy of lifestyle alteration. Legume Inflammation Feeding Experiment (LIFE). The effects of a high legume (dry bean) diet on markers of insulin resistance (IR) and inflammation in patients at high risk for CRC.

Metabolomics for identification of Biomarkers for Dietary Intervention and Protection. Metabolomics:The systematic study of all metabolites in an organism and how they change in relation to a biological perturbation such as diet, disease or intervention
American Diet Legume Diet BB BB Metabolomics for identifying biomarkers from the LIFE study. Serum was collected from participants before and after consumption of bean enriched weight maintenance diet. Anticipated results: Identification of biomarkers for compliance Discovery of biomarkers of efficacy
Metabolite Name Scaled Intensity Treatment Group Median Value Extreme Mean Value Data Points Upper Quartile Lower Quartile Max of distribution Min of distribution ___ Box and Whiskers Legend Metabolomics for identifying biomarkers from the LIFE study 274 named biochemicals identified; 87 biochemicals were significanly different between pre and post bean diets Pipecolate increased more than 6-fold in post bean diet.
Diet-derived Metabolites Diet-derived metabolites showed significantly different plasma levels in pre-diet and post-diet samples. Trigonelline (N-methylnicotinate)
Gut Bacterial Metabolites. Several metabolites generated by gut bacterial metabolism showed significantly different plasma levels in pre-diet and post-diet samples
Potential Markers of Dietary Compliance Potential candidates for markers of compliance to bean diet include the following. Gut bacterial metabolites pipecolate and indole proprionate. Diet derived 1,5-anhydroglucitol (1,5-AG) Modified amino acid N-acetylornithine

Metabolomics from Mice fed Bean Extracts Correlates with Metabolomics from Human (LIFE) Study Pipecolate and N-acetyl-ornithine, proposed biomarkers of bean diet compliance identified elevated in both bean diet plasma groups. Also a similar subtle yet significant decrease in 1,5- anhydroglucitol was observed in both animal groups on bean diet.
Metabolomics from Mice fed Bean Extracts Correlates with Metabolomics from Human (LIFE) Study Decreased lysophospholipids Decreased medium- chain fatty acids Decrease in carnitine/acylcarnitines, No notable change in long-chain FA; Collectively indicating increased FA metabolism for energy in bean diet-fed animals

Fecal nucleotide breakdown products including nitrogenous bases, ribose and 2-deoxyribose, as well as phosphate were substantially increased in bean extract fed mice
