To help meet the goal of eliminating death and suffering from cancer by 2015, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) is engaged in efforts to harness the power of nanotechnology to radically change the way we diagnose, image, and treat cancer. Already, NCI programs have supported research on novel nanodevices capable of one or more clinically important functions, including detecting cancer at its earliest stages, pinpointing its location within the body, delivering anticancer drugs specifically to malignant cells, and determining if these drugs are killing malignant cells. This report highlights some of the significant advances that have already occurred from bridging the interface between modern molecular biology and nanotechnology. Illus.

One way scientists are working to overcome challenges in cancer treatment and improve cancer care is through nanotechnology. Nanotechnology, engineered materials that make use of the unique physical properties, presents a new array of medical prospects that will revolutionize cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment practices. Giving new hope to patients, practitioners, and researchers alike, nanotechnology has the potential to translate recent discoveries in cancer biology into clinical advances in oncology. While public investments in nanotechnology for cancer continue to increase, medical products based on nanotechnology are already on the market. The National Cancer Policy forum held a workshop July 12-13, 2010, to explore challenges in the use of nanotechnology in oncology. Nanotechnology and Oncology evaluates the ongoing discussion on the role of nanotechnology in cancer as it relates to risk management, treatment, and regulatory policy. Assessments on nanomedicine and the physical properties of nanomaterials were presented during the workshop, along with an appraisal of the current status of research and development efforts.

Book Description :

Ribonucleic acid (RNA) nanotechnology is a rapidly emerging field that focuses on the nanostructure design, construction, and application in biotechnology and biomedicine. Unlike other biomacromolecules, RNA is more flexible in structure and more versatile in functionality. On the other hand, RNA is a naturally-occurring biopolymer, making them more biocompatible compared to other nanomaterials. Thus, RNA can serve as a building block to construct nanoparticles as drug delivery platform for cancer therapy. This dissertation primarily describes a fundamental study that explores the immune-compatibility of RNA nanoparticles, as well as the use of thermostable RNA nanoparticles to specifically deliver therapeutics for efficient cancer therapy without causing toxicity. Firstly, RNA polygons that have identical size but varying shapes, or same shape but with different sizes were constructed as study model. The RNA nanoparticles were found to be immunologically inert, indicating that RNA nanoparticles are safe drug carriers without triggering immune responses. On the other hand, they can elicit significant immunomodulation by extending the nanoparticles with special sequences. Specifically, this immunomodulation was found to be size, shape, sequence-dependent, demonstrating the potential of using RNA nanoparticles in immunotherapy. Secondly, the use of a thermostable RNA nanoparticle for solubilizing and high-density loading chemotherapeutic drugs for cancer inhibition is reported. Small chemotherapeutic drugs possess significant anti-cancer activity, but their clinical applications were greatly limited by the poor biocompatibility such as water-insolubility. By chemically conjugating water-insoluble drugs to RNA, the RNA nanoparticles dramatically improved drug water-solubility. An ultra-thermostable RNA four-way junction nanoparticle was able to covalently load twenty-four copies of paclitaxel without nanoparticle dissociation or unfolding. After intravenous administration, the resulting RNA-paclitaxel nanoparticles harboring specific cancer targeting ligand significantly inhibited breast cancer tumor in mice. The toxicity in organs and immune responses in mice were almost undetectable. Besides paclitaxel, this RNA-drug conjugation was applied to another anti-cancer drug, camptothecin, and showed significant inhibitory effect on tumor growth. Furthermore, an acid labile linker was developed within RNA-drug conjugates, aiming at controlling pH-responsive drug release in acidic tumor environment to improve drug efficacy. Thirdly, a three-dimensional RNA cube was constructed and explored as a multi-functional drug carrier by incorporation with different therapeutic modules. This multi-functional RNA cube is able to load chemotherapeutic drug, immunostimulatory molecule, or short-interfering RNA for enhanced cellular effects in vitro. What’s more, the RNA cube can be manipulated to become reconfigurable, suggesting the great potential of drug encapsulation and release for in vivo applications. Collectively, these findings demonstrate that RNA nanoparticles can serve as a biocompatible drug delivery platform for effective cancer therapy with favorable safety profile.
