The Molecular Mechanism of the Supra-Additive Response of Prostate Cancer to Androgen Ablation and Radiotherapy( Book )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main objectives of the proposal are to measure the molecular changes induced by androgen ablation and radiotherapy, to relate these changes to the supra-additive apoptotic response of androgen ablation plus radiation, and to use these data to develop a gene therapy strategy. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, yet our understanding of the interaction of androgen ablation and radiation at the molecular level is severely lacking. The proposed project will define the role of the key proteins in the apoptotic pathway, p53, bax, and bcl-2. Considerable progress has been made on two fronts: first, characterization of pretreatment biomarker levels in human prostate cancers and second, the development of a gene therapy strategy using adenoviral-p53 and adenoviral E2F. In the latter studies, these vectors have been found to sensitize both LNCaP and PC3 cells to radiation, and preliminary data with Ad5-p53 suggest an added benefit when androgen ablation is added. Some delays have been encountered in measurement of biomarker level changes in LNCaP cells cultured in androgen deprived medium. The problems with the system have been resolved and this analysis is now underway. The immediate significance of these studies is that two gene therapy strategies have been developed and a clinical trial written to test the feasibility, morbidity and efficacy of this approach. The significance of the androgen ablation mechanism/biomarker studies will be manifest at the end of next year

Sensitization of Prostate Cancer Cells to Androgen Deprivation and Radiation via Manipulation of the MDM2 Pathway( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Androgen deprivation (AD) is a common treatment for prostate cancer, yet the mechanisms of action are poorly understood. Radiotherapy (RT) is also often used in the treatment of localized disease and AD+RT in more high risk cases. Our results indicate that MDM2 is central to prostate cancer response to AD, RT, and AD+RT. Our data establish that by reducing the expression of MDM2 with an antisense oligonucleotide (AS-MDM2) the apoptotic response of LNCaP cells in vitro to AD, RT, and AD+RT is increased. The enhancements in apoptosis translated into gains in overall cell death (measured by clonogenic assay) . These interactions were reduced in LNCaP-MST cells that overexpressed MDM2. Preliminary findings in vivo indicate that AS-MDM2 sensitizes LNCaP cells to AD; the experiments are still in progress. We have also found that MDM2 overexpression was evident in 48% of a cohort of locally advanced men treated on Radiation Therapy Oncology Group protocol 86-10, correlated with Gleason score and was associated with a trend for increased distant metastasis. MDM2 is a promising target for enhancing prostate cancer response to AD, RT, and AD+RT, which could potentially impact men with virtually any stage of disease
