Abstract:We hypothesize that localized irradiation of solid tumors results in inflamed vasculature leading to an over-expression of various adhesion molecules. These adhesion molecules can then be targeted to selectively deliver antivascular drugs to irradiated tumors and delay tumor growth. Our purpose was to successfully target Combretastatin to irradiated tumor vasculature using liposomes as a delivery vehicle and vascular adhesion molecules as targeting ligands. For the first part of this study the antivascular drug Combretastatin was incorporated into liposomes whose surfaces had been modified by the addition of cyclo(Arg-Gly-Asp-D-Phe-Cys) (RGD). The RGD bound on the surface of the liposomeis specifically recognized by the αvβ3 integrin on the luminal surface of tumor vasculature. These RGD coated liposomes were successfully targeted to irradiated B16-F10 melanomas in C57BL male mice resulting in significant tumor growth delay compared to control groups. During the second phase of this study Combretastatin was incorporated into liposomes whose surfaces were modified by the addition of anti-E-selectin (ILs). This antibody is specific for the protein E-selectin which we believe is expressed at a high level post irradiation in mammary tumors. These ILs were successfully targeted to irradiated MCa-4 mammary carcinomas in C3H female mice resulting in significant tumor growth delay compared to control groups. However, ILs were not successfully targeted to an irradiated MCa-35 (more vasculature and less hypoxia then the MCa-4) carcinoma. These findings indicate that ILs (anti-E-selectin and RGD) can be successfully targeted to irradiated murine melanomas (B16-F10) and mammary carcinomas (MCa-4) resulting in significant growth delays.
