BACKGROUND: Oblimersen, an ODN targeting BCL-2 RNA, has been shown to be effective in reducing BCL-2 expression in vitro and in in vivo models engineered to overexpress BCL-2. The present study evaluated the efficacy of combining BCL-2 ODN and radiation in small-cell lung cancers (SCLC) cell lines.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: The in vitro effect was determined using short term (cell viability) and long term (clonogenic) assays. Apoptosis, BCL-2 expression and intratumoural uptake of the FAM-ODN with or without prior radiation treatment were also evaluated. Combination of ODN and RT was also assessed in vivo.
RESULTS: Radiation was shown to increase intracellular and intratumoural penetration of oblimersen, confirming previous results obtained in prostate cancer xenograft models. Oblimersen decreased BCL-2 protein expression in vitro and in vivo. BCL-2 ODN sensitised H69 cells to radiation in vitro and in vivo. Oblimersen increased radiation-induced apoptosis and decreased in vivo tumoural vascularisation.
CONCLUSION: Oblimersen was shown to increase in vitro and in vivo effect of RT on SCLC cell lines. Radiation increases intracellular and intratumoural penetration of ODN. This pre-clinical study argues in favour of clinical development in localised SCLC.
