Pheophorbide co-encapsulated with Cisplatin in folate-decorated PLGA nanoparticles to treat nasopharyngeal carcinoma: Combination of chemotherapy and photodynamic therapy.

Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces 2021 Sep 18;208:112100. Epub 2021 Sep 18.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, The 901st Hospital of the Joint Logistics Support Force of PLA, Hefei, Anhui 230031, China. Electronic address:

The adverse effect and drug resistance of Cisplatin (CDDP) could be potential reduced by delivering in targeted nanoparticles and by combining with adjuvant therapy such as photodynamic therapy. In this study, F/CDPR-NP was formulated and characterized for all the physicochemical, biological and in vivo analysis. The results obtained from various in vitro and biological studies showed that encapsulation of CDDP and PBR in PLGA nanoparticles results in controlled release of encapsulated drugs and exhibited significantly low cell viability in CNE-1 and HNE-1 cancer cells.

Immune-related adverse events are associated with improved response, progression-free survival, and overall survival for patients with head and neck cancer receiving immune checkpoint inhibitors.

Cancer 2021 Sep 21. Epub 2021 Sep 21.

Departments of Oncology and Otolaryngology, Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland.

Background: The authors hypothesized that patients developing immune-related adverse events (irAEs) while receiving immune checkpoint inhibition (ICI) for recurrent/metastatic head and neck cancer (HNC) would have improved oncologic outcomes.

Methods: Patients with recurrent/metastatic HNC received ICI at 2 centers. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression, Kaplan-Meier methods, and Cox proportional hazards regression were used to associate the irAE status with the overall response rate (ORR), progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS) in cohort 1 (n = 108).

Caveolin-1 and Sox-2 are predictive biomarkers of cetuximab response in head and neck cancer.

JCI Insight 2021 Sep 21. Epub 2021 Sep 21.

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, United States of America.

The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor cetuximab is the only FDA-approved oncogene-targeting therapy for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Despite variable treatment response, no biomarkers exist to stratify patients for cetuximab therapy in HNSCC. Here, we applied unbiased hierarchical clustering to reverse phase protein array (RPPA) molecular profiles from patient-derived xenograft (PDX) tumors, which revealed two PDX clusters defined by protein networks associated with EGFR inhibitor resistance.

CK2 Phosphorylation of Human Papillomavirus 16 E2 on Serine 23 Promotes Interaction with TopBP1 and Is Critical for E2 Interaction with Mitotic Chromatin and the Viral Life Cycle.

mBio 2021 Sep 21:e0116321. Epub 2021 Sep 21.

Virginia Commonwealth Universitygrid.224260.0 (VCU), Philips Institute for Oral Health Research, School of Dentistry, Richmond, Virginia, USA.

During the human papillomavirus 16 (HPV16) life cycle, the E2 protein interacts with host factors to regulate viral transcription, replication, and genome segregation/retention. Our understanding of host partner proteins and their roles in E2 functions remains incomplete. Here we demonstrate that CK2 phosphorylation of E2 on serine 23 promotes interaction with TopBP1 and and that E2 is phosphorylated on this residue during the HPV16 life cycle. Read More

HSP70i to subdue autoimmunity and support anti-tumor responses.

Cell Stress Chaperones 2021 Sep 20. Epub 2021 Sep 20.

Department of Dermatology & Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL, USA.

Developing immunosuppressive therapies for autoimmune diseases comes with a caveat that immunosuppression may promote the risk of developing other conditions or diseases. We have previously shown that biolistic delivery of an expression construct encoding inducible HSP70 (HSP70i) with one amino acid modification in the dendritic cell (DC) activating moiety 435-445 (HSP70i) to mouse skin resulted in significant immunosuppressive activity of autoimmune vitiligo, associated with fewer tissue infiltrating T cells. To prepare HSP70i as a potential therapeutic for autoimmune vitiligo, in this study we evaluated whether and how biolistic delivery of HSP70i in mice affects anti-tumor responses. Read More
