Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Alters Neuropilin-1, PlGF, and SNAI1 Expression Levels and Predicts Breast Cancer Patients Response

In this report, we are adding an extra finding, in which we show that the levels of circulating NRP-1 were significantly increased in patients who received NAC and had a partial response. Assessing patients who underwent NAC indicated that the levels of NRP-1 measured post-NAC were significantly higher in younger patients and patients with either a low or a medium body mass index (BMI), as well as in patients who remained with larger tumor size and partial response. Previously, we showed that SNAI1 expression in the immune cells collected from the peripheral blood of breast cancer patients was significantly higher in patients with stage I disease compared with higher stages (17). In this report, we found that SNAI1 expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of patients who received NAC was significantly increased, especially in patients who showed a complete pathological response to the treatment, but did not increase in those who had a partial response, which indicates that SNAI1 might be a good candidate to be used as a predictive marker for a complete pathological response. In vitro experiments on breast cancer MDA-MB-231 cells was done to validate the clinical observations. The knockdown of NRP-1 in the cells sensitized them to the common chemotherapy regimen (Adriyamicin/cyclophosphamide + Taxane) used in the neoadjuvant setting, which can be translated in that, patients with low levels of NRP-1 might respond better to NAC and vice versa.
