Book Description :

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common malignant central nervous system tumor. The ability of glioma cells to rapidly disperse and invade healthy brain tissue, coupled with their high resistance to chemotherapy and radiation have resulted in extremely poor prognoses among patients. In recent years, nitric oxide (NO) has been discovered to play a ubiquitous of role in human physiology and studies have shown that, at sufficient concentrations, NO is able to induce apoptosis as well as chemosensitization in tumor cells. This thesis discusses the synthesis and characterization of targeted NO donors for the treatment of GBM. Two glioma targeting biomolecules, Chlorotoxin (CTX) and VTWTPQAWFQWVGGGSKKKKK (VTW) were reacted with NO gas to synthesize NO donors. These NO donors, CTX-NO and VTW-NO, released NO for over 3 days and were able to induce cytotoxicity in a dose dependent manner in glioma cells. The biggest advantage, a result of the targeted delivery of NO, was that the NO donors did not have toxic effects on astrocytes and endothelial cells. To characterize the chemosensitizing effects of CTX-NO, cells were incubated with CTX-NO prior to exposure to temozolomide (TMZ) or carmustine (BCNU). These drugs are the most popular chemotherapeutics used in the treatment of GBM, but have only shown modest improvements in patient survival. Viability studies showed that CTX-NO selectively elicited chemosensitivity in glioma cells, whereas the chemosensitivty of astrocytes and endothelial cells remained unaffected. Further investigation showed that CTX-NO pretreatment decreased O6-methylguanine DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) and p53 levels, suggesting that a decrease in DNA repair ability may be the mechanism by which chemosensitivity is induced. Lastly, the effects of CTX-NO on glioma cell invasion and migration were studied using Boyden chamber and modified scratch assays. Non-toxic doses of CTX-NO decreased glioma cell invasion in a dose dependent manner. Studies quantifying matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) surface expression demonstrated that while MMP-2 expression was decreased by both CTX and CTX-NO, MMP-9 expression was decreased only by CTX-NO. Furthermore quantifying MMP-2 and MMP-9 activity levels showed that NO and CTX work synergistically to decrease the activity of the enzymes. These studies demonstrate that the decrease in glioma invasion resulting from CTX-NO treatment was partially a consequence of decreased levels of surface and activated MMP-2 and MMP-9. The work presented in this thesis describes a novel approach to treating GBM that can be modified to develop treatments for various other tumors. Furthermore this is the first study to develop glioma-targeting NO donors.

Biological Mechanisms and the Advancing Approaches to Overcoming Cancer Drug Resistance, Volume 12, discusses new approaches that are being undertaken to counteract tumor plasticity, understand and tackle the interactions with the microenvironment, and disrupt the rewiring of malignant cells or bypass biological mechanism of resistance by using targeted radionuclide therapies. This book provides a unique opportunity to the reader to understand the fundamental causes of drug resistance and how different approaches are applied. It is a one-stop-shop to understand why it is so difficult to treat cancer, and why only a very few patients respond to therapy and a significant portion develop resistance. Despite a rapid development of more effective anti-cancer drugs and combination therapies, cancer remains the leading cause of lethality in the developed world. The main reason for this is the ability of heterogeneous subpopulations of tumor cells interacting with constantly evolving tumor microenvironment to resist elimination and eventually, trigger cancer relapse. In this book, experts review current concepts explaining molecular and biological mechanisms of cancer drug resistance and discussing advancing approaches for overcoming these therapeutic challenges. Provides the most updated knowledge on the mechanisms of cancer drug resistance and the emerging therapeutic approaches reviewed by experts in the field Brings detailed analyses of most important recently reported developments related to drug resistance and their relevance to overcoming it in cancer patients Discusses in-depth molecular mechanisms and novel concepts of cancer resistance to conventional and advanced therapies

Book Description :

Nitric Oxide (NO) is a pleitropic, ubiquitous modulator of cellular functions. Aryl nitrite and glyceryl trinitrate, representative intravasadilators, were introduced as therapeutic agents more than a century ago for relief from acute attacks of angina. The vasodilator action is mediated by the release of NO following treatment. NO has important therapeutic applications in several diseases such as inflammatory diseases, erectile dysfunction, inflammation, pain and neural protective activity. However, the role of NO in cancer and its application in therapy has received little attention. This monograph will be the first to focus on studies that investigate the role of NO in tumor cell pathogenesis, growth, angiogenesis, response to cytotoxic therapies and NO translational applications in cancer therapy, alone or in conjunction with other therapies.

Book Description :

Despite the significant advances in cancer therapy made through constant evaluation and analysis of treatment aftereffects, the disease still remains one of the foremost causes of mortality worldwide killing more than 12 million people annually. The prime reason behind the failure of conventional chemotherapeutics which are used as the chief regimen in the comprehensive treatment of cancers is the development of chemoresistance. It can be either intrinsic or acquired and is primarily mediated via different key regulators like MDR, MAPK, NF-κB, PI3K/Akt, Wnt signaling pathways etc. Thus, agents which can target these regulatory elements or pathways and in turn sensitize cancer cells to chemotherapy holds immense prospect. However, there is barely such comprehensive work available in scientific literature that explains how chemosensitization of cancer cells functions using different drug combinations and exhibit synergism. This book provides a detailed description of chemoresistance and chemosensitization, targets for chemosensitization and various approaches adapted in the process of chemosensitization. Furthermore, the book explicates the role of various chemosensitizers, both natural and synthetic in sensitizing cancer cells and also details the current research findings on chemosensitization of different cancer types in both pre-clinical and clinical settings.

Book Description :

​​​​The traditional approaches to treat various cancers include chemotherapy, radiation and/or hormonal therapy. While these therapies continue to be effective in large part, they are not selective and highly toxic. There have been encouraging results in alternative therapeutic approach called antibody-mediated anti-cancer therapy, which is less toxic, more selective, and can also reverse drug/radiation resistance. Monoclonal antibodies or mAbs can be used to destroy malignant tumor cells and prevent tumor growth by blocking specific cell receptors. mAbs can bind only to cancer cell-specific antigens and induce an immunological response against the target cancer cell. The book covers the common and unique features of mAbs agains various cancer, gives the latest developments on the molecular, biochemical and genetic mechanisms of resistance by various mAbs, as well as discuss novel mAbs to overcome resistance.
