The influence of inhibitors of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase on X-ray-induced potentially lethal damage repair

D M Brown, J W Evans, J M Brown
1984 The British journal of cancer. Supplement  
Inhibition of repair of X-ray-induced potentially lethal damage (PLD) could enhance the curability of radioresistant tumours. We have studied the effect of inhibitors of the enzyme poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase on X-ray PLD repair. Four classes of inhibitors are known: aromatic amides (e.g., 3-aminobenzamide), thymidine, nicotinamides and methyl xanthines (e.g., caffeine). Plateau-phase Chinese hamster ovary (HA-1) cultures were exposed to 10mM concentrations of thymidine, nicotinamide,

Irradiated cells without drug exhibited a 5-6 fold increase in survival over the 6 h period compared to cultures plated immediately after irradiation. Although none of the compounds proved cytotoxic to unirradiated controls over the 6.5 h exposure, all of the compounds except thymidine reduced the capacity of the cells to repair PLD. The order of the inhibitory effect was caffeine greater than 3-ABA greater than nicotinamide, and the inhibition was concentration dependent for nicotinamide and 3-ABA. We also studied the effect of 3-ABA on the radiation response of exponentially growing cells. 5mM 3-ABA for 2 h post-irradiation resulted in a dose-multiplicative sensitization reducing the D0 from 0.88 Gy to 0.69 Gy, indicating an involvement of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase in the radiosensitivity of exponentially growing as well as plateau-phase cells.

Imaging Tumor Sensitivity to a Bioreductive Prodrug: Two for the Price of One!

J. M. Brown
2012 Clinical Cancer Research  
Hypoxia is an important characteristic of many solid tumors and has a major negative effect on treatment response. A way to combat this is with drugs, called "bioreductive prodrugs", or "hypoxic cytotoxins", that are metabolized under hypoxia to toxic species. However the patients with hypoxic tumors need to be identified. In this issue of Clinical Cancer Research Wang and colleagues (1) report that the hypoxia marker EF5 predicts for the potential antitumor activity of the bioreductive
more » ... ioreductive hypoxia-activated prodrug CEN-209 not only by detecting tumor hypoxia (low oxygen levels) but also by assessing the activity of the enzymes responsible for reducing the prodrug to its cytotoxic product under hypoxia. For over 60 years the holy grail of research in radiation oncology has been a method to overcome the problem caused by the resistance of the hypoxic cells in tumors to killing by radiation. Many strategies have been tried such as increasing tumor oxygen levels by patients breathing pure oxygen, using densely ionizing radiation such as neutrons whose killing of cells is less dependent on oxygen, and the use of small molecules ("hypoxic cell radiosensitizers") that substitute for oxygen in the free radical reaction that makes permanent the radiation-induced radical damage to DNA. Though each of these strategies only imperfectly combats the hypoxia problem, the sum total of the clinical trials demonstrates that modifiers of tumor hypoxia produce a highly significant, though modest, improvement in local tumor control and patient survival when combined with radiotherapy (2). However, perhaps the most promising strategy in recent years has been the development of agents that can actually exploit the fact that tumors are usually more hypoxic than normal tissues by selectively killing the hypoxic tumor cells (3). One such drug, a benzotriazine di-N-oxide, tirapazamine (TPZ), has a very high selectivity for killing hypoxic cells (with drug levels needed to kill hypoxic cells typically only 1% or less of those needed to kill aerobic cells) and has been tested in several clinical trials. However, the recent report of a large randomized multicenter phase III trial of TPZ combined with radiotherapy for head and neck cancer reported no benefit (4), though part of this could be attributed to major deficiencies in treatment in a subset of patients (5). Meanwhile, further drug development by the team led by Wilson and Hay in Auckland, NZ, has identified analogs of TPZ that are less toxic and that are superior to Research. on April 13, 2017.
