Title
A liposome-based antigen delivery system using pH-sensitive fusogenic polymers for cancer immunotherapy
Abstract

Highly pH-sensitive liposomes that deliver antigenic molecules into cytosol through fusion with or destabilization of endosome were prepared by surface modification of egg yolk phosphatidylcholine/dioleoylphosphatidylethanolamine (1/1, mol/mol) liposomes with 3-methylglutarylated poly(glycidol) of linear (MGlu-LPG) or hyperbranched structure (MGlu-HPG). These polymer-modified liposomes were stable at neutral pH, but they became strongly destabilized below pH 6, which corresponds to the pH of endosome. These polymer-modified liposomes were taken up by murine dendritic cells (DCs) more efficiently than the unmodified liposomes were through an endocytic pathway. They introduced entrapped ovalbumin (OVA) molecules into cytosol. Subcutaneous or nasal administration of the polymer-modified liposomes loaded with OVA induced generation of OVA-specific cytotoxic T cells (CTL) much more effectively than the unmodified liposomes loaded with OVA. Furthermore, administration of the polymer-modified OVA-loaded liposomes to mice bearing E.G7-OVA tumor significantly reduced the tumor burden, although the OVA-loaded unmodified liposomes only slightly affected tumor growth. Results suggest that the polymer-modified liposomes with highly pH-sensitive destabilizing property are promising as antigen carriers for efficient cancer immunotherapy.
