Sažetak
The bystander effect, produced by ganciclovir-mediated killing of cells transduced with a herpes simplex virusthymidine kinase (HSVtk) gene, defines the cooperative killing of non-HSVtk-transduced cells. In vitro, a major contributor to this phenomenon is metabolic cooperation involving transfer of cytotoxic small molecules between cell via gap junctions. In this study, the by stander effect was assessed in vivo using cells of oral squamous cell carcinoma origin. Mixtures of HSVtk+ and HSVtk- tumor cells were implanted subcutaneously in the left flank of nude mice, and naive HSVtk- cells were implanted zubcutaneously in the right flank. When tumors attained a size of 0.5 to 1 cm, the animals were treated with ganciclovir on a daily basis. The tumors comprised of mixed cells in the left flank resolved, consistentwith a predicted bystander effect. The naive tumors in the right flank either resolved or become cytostatic showing little further growth compared to controls. Similar results were obtained when naive tumros were grown in both flanks and the tumor in the left flank received intratumoral injection of HSVtk retroviral producer cells or PA317 (HSVtk+) packaging cells, but not parental NIH 3T3 cells. Concomitant treatment with dexamethasone impaired the antitumor effect on the contralateral side. When these experiments were performed in SCID-Beige mice, there was a reduced antitumor effect on the ipsilateral flank and no antitumor response in the contralateral flank. Together with histology of regressing tumors, which showed an infiltration of lymphoid cells, these results are suggestive of an immune-related antitumor response that could account for the distant bystander effect.
