Title
Combined mTOR inhibitor rapamycin and doxorubicin-loaded cyclic octapeptide modified liposomes for targeting integrin α3 in triple-negative breast cancer
Abstract

A novel therapeutic strategy combining mTOR inhibitor rapamycin (RAPA) and doxorubicin (DOX)-loaded cyclic octapeptide liposomes for targeting integrin α3 was expected to combat the triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). RAPA was loaded into PEG–PCL polymer micelles (M-RAPA) to realize solubilization. Flow cytometry analysis and laser confocal microscopy were used to evaluate the in vitro cellular uptake. The in vivo tumor targeting and bio-distribution were investigated by living fluorescence imaging. As the results, LXY modification significantly enhanced the cellular uptake of liposomal DOX in integrin α3 overexpressed TNBC cells (MDA-MB-231) in vitro and accordingly improved the tumor accumulation of liposomes in vivo. When used alone or in combination with LXY-LS-DOX, M-RAPA could greatly inhibit the expression of HIF-1α protein, which is always highly expressed in malignant cancers and involved in tumor angiogenesis, proliferation, therapeutic resistance and poor prognosis. Meanwhile, the improved efficacy of combined targeted therapy with LXY-LS-DOX and M-RAPA was demonstrated by the in vitro cytotoxicity against model TNBC cells and in vivo anti-tumor activity against mouse bearing TNBC model. These results suggested that the targeted combinational therapy based on LXY-LS-DOX and M-RAPA systems may provide a rational strategy to improve therapeutic outcomes of TNBC.
