As a malignant tumor, breast cancer is very prone to metastasis. Chemotherapy is one of the most common means for treating breast cancer. However, due to the serious metastasis and the poor targeting effect of traditional chemotherapeutic drugs, even after years of efforts, the therapeutic effect is still unsatisfied. Therefore, in this study, we constructed a kind of PFV modified epirubicin plus schisandrin B liposomes to solve the above disadvantages. In vitro experiments showed that the targeting liposomes with ideal physicochemical property could increase the cytotoxicity of MDA-MB-435S cells, destroy the formation of vasculogenic mimicry (VM), and inhibit tumor invasion and migration. Action mechanisms indicated that the inhibition of targeting liposomes on tumor metastasis was attributed to the regulation of the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), Vimentin (VIM) and E-cadherin (E-cad). In vivo pharmacodynamic experiments showed that the targeting liposomes could significantly improve the antitumor effect in mice. H&E staining and TUNEL results showed that the targeting liposomes could promote the apoptosis of tumor cells. Hence, the PFV modified epirubicin plus schisandrin B liposomes constructed in this study provided a new therapeutic strategy for breast cancer.

AbstractPresently, there are no few anticancer drugs that have been used clinically due to their poor targeting ability, short half-life period, non-selective distributions, generation of vasculogenic mimicry (VM) channels, high metastasis, and high recurrence rate. This study aimed to explore the effects of R8 modified epirubicin–dihydroartemisinin liposomes that could target non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells, destroy VM channels, inhibit tumor metastasis, and explain the possible underl...

Abstract Liposomes functionalized on their surface with carbohydrates (glycoliposomes) represent an optimal approach for targeting of drugs to diseased tissues in vivo , thanks to biocompatibility, low toxicity and easy manufacturing of these lipid nanoparticles. Here we report on the study of liposomes including a novel glycosylated amphiphile and on the comparison of their features with those of glycosylated analogues described previously. Further, the capability of the different glucosylated ...

Abstract Colitis-associated cancer (CAC) has a close relationship with ulcerative colitis (UC). Therapeutic effect of Schisandrin B (SchB) on UC and CAC remains largely unknown. We investigated the preventative effect of SchB on the dextran sulphate sodium (DSS) model of UC and azoxymethane (AOM)/DSS model of CAC. Furthermore, focal adhesion kinase (FAK) activation and influence on commensal microbiota are important for UC treatment. Impact on FAK activation by SchB in UC development was evaluat...

Metastasis to distant organs is a major cause for solid cancer mortality, and the acquisition of migratory and invasive phenotype is a key factor in initiation of malignancy. In this study we investigated the contribution of Mixed-Lineage Kinase 4 (MLK4) to aggressive phenotype of breast cancer cells. Our TCGA cancer genomic data analysis revealed that amplification or mRNA upregulation of MLK4 occurred in 23% of invasive breast carcinoma cases. To find the association between MLK4 expression an...

Vasculogenic mimicry (VM) refers to the fluid-conducting channels formed by aggressive tumor cells rather than endothelial cells (EC) with elevated expression of genes associated with vascularization. VM has been considered as one of the reasons that glioblastoma becomes resistant to anti-VEGF therapy. However, the molecular basis underlying VM formation remains unclear. Here we report that the insulin-like growth factor–binding protein 2 (IGFBP2) acts as a potent factor to enhance VM formation ...

Dipeptidyl peptidase (DPP)-4 is a multifunctional glycoprotein involved in various biological and pathologic processes. DPP-4 has been widely recognized as a therapeutic target for type 2 diabetes mellitus but is also implicated in the development of human malignancies. Here, we show that inhibition of DPP-4 accelerates breast cancer metastasis via induction of CXCL12/CXCR4, which activates mTOR to promote epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT). In cultured cells, DPP-4 knockdown induced EMT an...

Abstract Vitamin D receptor (VDR) is recognized as a potential target for the treatment of breast cancer which is the most common malignancy among women in the world. In this study, a series of nonsecosteroidal VDR agonists with a novel diarylmethane skeleton was designed, synthesized and the anti-tumor activities of these compounds were determined. Compound 28 was identified as the most effective agents in reducing the viability of MCF-7 cells, with a low IC 50 via the inhibition of cell cycle ...
