要約

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a therapeutic modality whose efficacy depends on several factors including the type of the photosensitizer, the light fluence, and cellular response. Cell recurrence and proliferation are problems that are unsolved in PDT; hence, new approaches are needed to increase the efficacy of PDT. Nitric oxide (NO), present in the tumor and in the tumoral microenvironment, has an important role as a modulator of PDT. Reports in the literature demonstrate that NO in tumors can exhibit pro- and anti-apoptotic properties by modulating different signalling pathways such as the NF-κB pathway and on downstream genes of the NF-κB/Snail/RKIP survival/anti-apoptotic circuitry. In this study, we present findings on the pivotal role played by NO in B78-H1 murine amelanocytic melanoma cells treated with pheophorbide a/PDT (Pba/PDT). The NO released by Pba/PDT modulated the NF-κB/Snail/RKIP loop leading to recurrence or death of the cells in a concentration-dependent manner. To sensitize cancer cells to photodynamic therapy, we demonstrate that the combined treatment of the photosensitizer Pheophorbide a with the NO donor, DETANONOate, resulted in tumor cell death.
