RESUMO

Tumor cells adapt to excessive oxidative stress by actuating reactive oxygen species (ROS)-defensing system, leading to a resistance to oxidation therapy. In this work, self-delivery photodynamic synergists (designated as PhotoSyn) are developed for oxidative damage amplified tumor therapy. Specifically, PhotoSyn are fabricated by the self-assembly of chlorine e6 (Ce6) and TH588 through π-π stacking and hydrophobic interactions. Without additional carriers, nanoscale PhotoSyn possess an extremely high drug loading rate (up to 100%) and they are found to be fairly stable in aqueous phase with a uniform size distribution. Intravenously injected PhotoSyn prefer to accumulate at tumor sites for effective cellular uptake. More importantly, TH588-mediated MTH1 inhibition could destroy the ROS-defensing system of tumor cells by preventing the elimination of 8-oxo-2'-deoxyguanosine triphosphate (8-oxo-dG), thereby exacerbating the oxidative DNA damage induced by the photodynamic therapy (PDT) of Ce6 under light irradiation. As a consequence, PhotoSyn exhibit enhanced photo toxicity and a significant antitumor effect. This amplified oxidative damage strategy improves the PDT efficiency with a reduced side effect by increasing the lethality of ROS without generating superabundant ROS, which would provide a new insight for developing self-delivery nanoplatforms in photodynamic tumor therapy in clinic.

RESUMO

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) often suffers from the exacerbated tumor hypoxia and the heterogeneous distribution of photosensitizers, leading to an inefficient ROS productivity and availability. In this work, a mitochondria targeted O2 economizer (designated as Mito-OxE) is developed to improve PDT efficiency by alleviating tumor hypoxia and enhancing the subcellular localization of photosensitizers. Specifically, the photosensitizer of protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) is modified with the hydrophilic polyethylene glycol and the lipophilic cation of triphenylphosphine (TPP) to fabricate the biocompatible mitochondria targeted photosensitizers (designated as Mito-PSs). And Mito-OxE is prepared by using Mito-PSs to load the mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation inhibitors of atovaquone (ATO). Benefiting from the targeting capability of TPP, Mito-OxE can selectively accumulate in mitochondria after cellular uptake. Subsequently, the mitochondrial respiration would be suppressed to with the participation of ATO, resulting in a local hypoxia mitigation for enhanced PDT. Compared with Mito-PSs, Mito-OxE maximizes the therapeutic effect against hypoxic tumors under light irradiation. This design of mitochondria targeted O2 economizer would advance the development of targeted drug delivery system for effective PDT regardless of hypoxic microenvironment.

RESUMO

The development of photodynamic therapy (PDT) is severely limited by short half-life of singlet oxygen (1O2) and the hypoxic microenvironment. In this work, a plasma membrane targeted photodynamic O2 economizer (designated as P-POE) is developed to improve the subcellular delivery of photosensitizers and alleviate the tumor hypoxia for enhanced PDT effect. After self-assembly into nanomicelles, P-POE has a relatively high stability and a favorable photochemical performance, which are conducive to boosting the 1O2 production. Besides, the plasma membrane anchoring of P-POE contributes to enhancing the preferential retention and cellular accumulation of photosensitizers on tumor tissues and cells. More importantly, P-POE-induced mitochondrial respiratory depression is demonstrated to reduce the O2 consumption of tumor cells to relieve the hypoxia. Consequently, P-POE still exhibits a robust PDT effect against hypoxic tumors, which greatly inhibits the proliferation of breast cancer with low adverse reactions. This innovative combination of subcellular targeting and hypoxic alleviation would advance the development of individualized drug delivery systems for photodynamic therapy against hypoxic tumors.

RESUMO

Multidrug resistance (MDR) is one of the prime reasons for the failure of cancer chemotherapy, which continues to be a great challenge to be solved. In this work, α-tocopherol succinate (α-TOS) and doxorubicin (DOX)-based self-delivery nanomedicine (designated as α-TD) is prepared to combat drug resistance for cancer synergistic chemotherapy. Carrier-free α-TD possesses a fairly high drug loading rate and improves the cellular uptake via the endocytosis pathway. More importantly, the apoptotic inducer α-TOS could elevate the reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation, disrupt mitochondrial function and reduce adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) production, which facilitate the intracellular drug retention while decreasing its efflux. As a result, α-TD achieves a considerable synergistic chemotherapeutic effect against drug resistant cancer cells. Moreover, it also exhibits a preferable inhibitory effect on tumor growth with a low system toxicity in vivo. This synergistic drug self-delivery strategy would open a new window for developing carrier-free nanomedicine for overcoming drug resistance in cancer therapy.

RESUMO

Self-delivery of photosensitizer and immune modulator to tumor site is highly recommendable to improve the photodynamic immunotherapy yet remains challenging. Herein, self-delivery photoimmune stimulators (designated as iPSs) are developed for photodynamic sensitized tumor immunotherapy. Carrier-free iPSs are constructed by optimizing the noncovalent interactions between the pure drugs of chlorine e6 (Ce6) and NLG919, which avoid the excipients-raised toxicity and immunogenicity. Intravenously administrated iPSs prefer to passively accumulate on tumor tissues for a robust photodynamic therapy (PDT) with the induction of immunogenetic cell death (ICD) cascade to activate cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) and initiate antitumor immune response. Meanwhile, the concomitant delivery of NLG919 inhibits the activation of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 (IDO-1) to reverse the immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment. Ultimately, the photodynamic sensitized immunotherapy with iPSs efficiently inhibit the primary and distant tumor growth with a low system toxicity, which would shed light on the development of self-delivery nanomedicine for clinical transformation in tumor precision therapy.

RESUMO

Development of antitumor agents with high efficiency and low toxicity is one of the most important goals for biomedical research. However, most traditional therapeutic strategies were limited due to their non-specificity and abnormal tumor microenvironments, causing a poor therapeutic efficiency and severe side effects. In this paper, a tumor targeted self-synergistic nanoplatform (designated as PAO@PCN@HA) was developed for chemotherapy sensitized photodynamic therapy (PDT) against hypoxic tumors. The efficient drug loading of phenylarsine oxide (PAO) in porphyrinic metal organic framework of PCN-224 as well as the surface modification of hyaluronic acid (HA) improved the targeted drug delivery and reduced the side effects of PAO at the therapeutic dose. Particularly, PAO as an arsenical-based chemotherapeutic agent could not only induce cell apoptosis by generating reactive oxygen species (ROS), but also regulate tumor microenvironments to improve the PDT effect of PCN-224 by mitigating hypoxia and consuming cellular GSH. Both in vitro and in vivo investigations confirmed an effective self-synergy of PAO@PCN@HA in hypoxic tumor therapy with a low systemic toxicity. This integration of microenvironment adjustment with tumor targeted self-synergistic mechanism might provide a new insight for the development of arsenic-based antitumor strategy for clinical applications.

RESUMO

In recent years, epigenetics has attracted great attentions in the field of biomedicine, which is used to denote the heritable changes in gene expression without any variation in DNA sequence, including DNA methylation, histone modification and so on. Inspired by it, a simple and versatile amino acids modification strategy is proposed in this paper to regulate the subcellular distribution of photosensitizer for plasma membrane targeted photodynamic therapy (PDT). Particularly, the plasma membrane anchoring ability and photo toxicity of the photosensitizer against different cell lines could be effectively manipulated at a single amino acid level. Systematic researches indicate that the number and variety of amino acids have a significant influence on the plasma membrane targeting effect of the photosensitizer. Furthermore, after self-assembling into nanoparticles, the obtained nano photosensitizers (NPs) also exhibit a good biocompatibility and plasma membrane targeting ability, which are conducive to enhancing the PDT therapeutic effect under light irradiation. Both in vitro and in vivo investigations confirm a robust tumor inhibition effect of NPs with a good biocompatibility. This epigenetics-inspired photosensitizer modification strategy would contribute to the development of structure-based drug design for tumor precision therapy.

RESUMO

Hypoxia is a common feature for most malignant tumors, which was also closely related to the oxygen-dependent photodynamic therapy. Based on Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET), a smart nanoprobe (designated as H-Probe) was designed in this paper for hypoxia imaging and photodynamic tumor therapy. Due to the FRET process, H-Probe could respond to hypoxia with a significant fluorescence recovery. Moreover, abundant in vitro investigations demonstrated that the photosensitizer of PpIX in H-Probe could generate large amounts of singlet oxygen to kill cancer cells in the presence of oxygen and light with appropriate wavelength. Also, intravenously injected H-Probe with light irradiation achieved an effective tumor inhibition in vivo with a reduced side effect. This original strategy of integrating hypoxia imaging and tumor therapy in one nanoplatform would promote the development of theranostic nanoplatform for tumor precision therapy.
