Analyzing the effects of instillation volume on intravesical delivery using biphasic solute transport in a deformable geometry


By: S. Smith n, B. Griffith* & D. Zaharoff n

author keywords: bladder cancer; cystitis; intravesical delivery; FEBio
MeSH headings : Administration, Intravesical; Humans; Models, Theoretical; Urinary Bladder Diseases / drug therapy
TL;DR: The volume of instillation was found to have a substantial impact on the exposure of solute to the deeper muscle layers of the bladder, which are typically more difficult to reach and indicate the role that instillation volume may play in targeting particular layers ofThe bladder during an intravesical delivery.

author keywords: Breast cancer vaccine; Autologous tumor cell vaccine; MDSCs; Breast cancer immunogenicity
MeSH headings : Animals; Breast / pathology; Breast Neoplasms / immunology; Breast Neoplasms / pathology; Breast Neoplasms / therapy; CRISPR-Cas Systems; Cancer Vaccines / administration & dosage; Cancer Vaccines / immunology; Cell Line, Tumor / immunology; Cell Line, Tumor / radiation effects; Cell Line, Tumor / transplantation; Disease Models, Animal; Female; Gene Deletion; Granulocyte Colony-Stimulating Factor / genetics; Granulocyte Colony-Stimulating Factor / immunology; Humans; Immunogenicity, Vaccine; Mice; Mice, Inbred BALB C; Neoplasm Recurrence, Local / immunology; Neoplasm Recurrence, Local / prevention & control; Treatment Outcome
TL;DR: This study demonstrates that genetic ablation of immunosuppressive cytokines, such as G-CSF, can enhance the immunogenicity of breast cancer cell-based vaccines. (via Semantic Scholar)

Immunological mechanisms of intravesical chitosan/interleukin-12 immunotherapy against murine bladder cancer


By: S. Smith n, J. Baltz*, B. Koppolu n, S. Ravindranathan*, K. Nguyen* & D. Zaharoff n

author keywords: BCG; bladder cancer; chitosan; immunotherapy; interleukin-12; intratumoral; intravesical; MDSC; TILS; TReg
TL;DR: The ability of properly delivered interleukin-12-based therapies to engage adaptive immunity within the tumor itself as well as throughout the body is demonstrated and the case for clinical translation of chitosan/interleuk in-12 as an intravesical treatment for bladder cancer is strengthened.

Modulation of Interleukin-12 activity in the presence of heparin


By: S. Jayanthi*, B. Koppolu*, K. Nguyen*, S. Smith*, B. Felber*, T. Kumar*, D. Zaharoff n

MeSH headings : Biophysical Phenomena; Cell Line; Chromatography, Gel; Flow Cytometry; Heparin / metabolism; Heparitin Sulfate / metabolism; Humans; Immunologic Factors / metabolism; Interleukin-12 / chemistry; Interleukin-12 / metabolism; Interleukin-12 Subunit p35; Protein Binding; Protein Conformation / drug effects; Protein Multimerization / drug effects; Scattering, Small Angle
TL;DR: Results of this study demonstrate a new role for heparin in modulating the biological activity of IL-12, and Heparin modestly protected hIL-12 from proteolytic degradation, however, this was not a likely mechanism for increased cytokine activity in vitro. (via Semantic Scholar)
