Glioblastoma is one of the most aggressive types of brain tumor. Epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFRs) are overexpressed in glioma, and EGFR amplifications and mutations lead to rapid proliferation and invasion. EGFR-targeted therapy might be an effective treatment for glioma. Gefitinib (Ge) is an EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), and Golgi phosphoprotein 3 (GOLPH3) expression is associated with worse glioma prognosis. Downregulation of GOLPH3 could promote EGFR degradation. Here, an angiopep-2 (A2)-modified cationic lipid-poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticle (A2-N) was developed that can release Ge and GOLPH3 siRNA (siGOLPH3) upon entering glioma cells and therefore acts as a combinatorial anti-tumor therapy. The in vitro and in vivo studies proved that A2-N/Ge/siGOLPH3 successfully crossed the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and targeted glioma. Released siGOLPH3 effectively silenced GOLPH3 mRNA expression and further promoted EGFR and p-EGFR degradation. Released Ge also markedly inhibited EGFR signaling. This combined EGFR-targeted action achieved remarkable anti-glioma effects and could be a safe and effective treatment for glioma. KEY MESSAGES: Angiopep-2-modified cationic lipid polymer can penetrate the BBB. Gefitinib can inhibit EGFR signaling and block the autophosphorylation of critical tyrosine residues on EGFR. GOLPH3 siRNA can be transfected into glioma and downregulate GLOPH3 expression. A2-N/Ge/siGOLPH3 can inhibit glioma growth.

The therapeutic treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) remains a major challenge. Synergistic chemotherapy and radiotherapy (RT) have been considered the standard clinical therapy for malignant glioma, but there are some outstanding problems. First, gliomas are deemed exceedingly radio-resistant tumors, owing to efficient DNA double-strand break repair. In addition, the first-line chemotherapeutic agent (temozolomide, TMZ) for glioma shows extensive side effects and low accumulation in brain tumors. Therefore, we designed and constructed an Angiopep-2 modified cationic lipid-Poly-lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA), Angiopep-2 (A2)/DSPE-PEG2000/DOTAP/PLGA (APDP), to transport TMZ and a DNA repair inhibitor (Dbait) into glioblastoma cells, achieving concomitant chemo-radiotherapy treatment of glioma. At the cellular level, the APDP+TMZ/Dbait can be well endocytosed and enhance accumulation of the agent in brain tumors. Furthermore, the nanoparticle combined with Dbait improves the efficiency of radiotherapy in GBM. Our experimental data demonstrate that APDP+TMZ/Dbait has great potential as a multipurpose nanomedicine for the synergistic chemo-radiotherapy and radio-sensitization of malignant glioma in precise medical applications.

PURPOSE: Glioma is a highly aggressive and lethal brain tumor. Signal transducers and activators of transcription (STAT) pathway are widely implicated in glioma carcinogenesis. Our previous study found that the Fynrelated kinase (FRK) gene, plays as a tumor suppressor in the development and progression of glioma. This study aimed to investigate the role of FRK in the activation pathway of STATs and its effect on the growth of glioma. METHODS: The U251 and U87 cells with stable FRK overexpression were generated by lentivirus technique. The effects of FRK on the related proteins of STAT signaling pathway were detected by western blotting. Coimmunoprecipitation was used to detect the association of FRK and STAT1. The effects of STAT1 on the proliferation of glioma cells were detected by CCK8 or Edu cell proliferation assays. The expressions and correlation of FRK and p-STAT1 in glioma tissues were detectd by western blotting or immunohistochemistry. The effect of FRK on the growth of glioma was investigated in vivo mouse model. RESULTS: The level of p-JAK2 and p-STAT1 increased after FRK overexpression, while they decreased after FRK downregulation both in U251 and U87 cells. However, FRK had no effect on STAT3 phosphorylation. FRK-induced STAT1 activation was not dependent on JAK2. FRK associated with STAT1, induced STAT1 nuclear translocation and regulated the expressions of STAT1-related target genes. STAT1 overexpression suppressed the proliferation of glioma cells. In contrast, STAT1 knockdown by siRNA promoted glioma cell growth. Importantly, down-regulation of STAT1 partially attenuated FRK-induced growth suppression. The clinical sample-based study indicated that the expression of FRK was significantly correlated with the expression of p-STAT1. FRK significantly inhibited glioma tumor growth in vivo. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings highlighted a critical role of FRK in tumor suppression ability through promoting STAT1 activation, and provided a potential therapeutic target for glioma.

The addition of temozolomide (TMZ) to radiotherapy (RT) improves survival of patients with glioblastoma (GBM). However, TMZ + RT causes excess toxicity in patients. In this study, we prepared angiopep-2 (A2) modified lipid-poly (hypoxic radiosensitized polyprodrug) nanoparticles for TMZ delivery (A2-P(MIs)25/TMZ) to achieve synergistic effects against glioma. This A2-P(MIs)25/TMZ display highly promising advantages: (1) a hydrophobic P-(MIs)25 core where poorly water-soluble TMZ can be encapsulated; (2) nitro groups of the hydrophobic P-(MIs)25 core that are converted into hydrophilic amino groups (P(NH2s)25) under low oxygen conditions to mimic the oxygen-increased sensitization to RT; (3) a lipid monolayer at the interface of the core and the shell to modify the A2 (a specific ligand for low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein-1 (LRP-1), which are expressed in the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and human glioma cells), thereby enhancing the drug encapsulation efficiency in glioma. These nanoparticles appear as a promising and robust nanoplatforms for TMZ and hypoxic cell radiosensitization delivery.

A combination of different chemotherapy approaches can obtain the best response for many cancers. However, the greatest challenge is the development of a nanoparticle formulation that can encapsulate different chemotherapeutic agents to achieve the proper synergetic chemotherapy for the tumor. Here, amphiphilic ferrocenium-tetradecyl (Fe-C14) was constructed to form cationic micelles in an aqueous solution via self-assembly. Then, it was coated by hyaluronic acid (HA) through electrostatic interactions to generate HA-Fe-C14 micelles. The HA-Fe-C14 micelles were used to deliver doxorubicin (DOX), and it showed that the DOX could be released rapidly under a high-GSH tumor environment. The HA-Fe-C14/DOX micelles were able to accumulate efficiently in tumor and showed significant anticancer effect both in vitro and in vivo. These results suggest that HA-Fe-C14/DOX micelles are a useful drug delivery system that enhances synergic antitumor treatment effects.

PURPOSE: GOLPH3 has been shown to be involved in glioma proliferation. In this study, we aimed to demonstrate that GOLPH3 can serve as a target for glioma gene therapy. METHODS: During the experiment, cationic liposomes with angiopep-2 (A2-CL) were used to deliver siGOLPH3 crossing the blood-brain barrier and reaching the glioma. RESULTS: At the cellular level, the A2-CL/siGOLPH3 could silence GOLPH3 and then effectively inhibited the proliferation of cells. In vivo experiments, using U87-GFP-Luci-bearing BALB/c mouse models, we demonstrated that A2-CL could deliver GOLPH3-siRNA specifically to glioma and effectively inhibit glioma growth. CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that GOLPH3 has great potential as a target for the gene therapy of glioma and is of great value in precise medical applications.
