Abstract

Experimental gliomas attract hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPC) in vivo. HPC are therefore promising candidates for a cell-based delivery of therapeutic molecules to experimental gliomas. A therapeutic application requires efficient genetic manipulation of the cellular vector and a lack of tumorigenicity. Here, we studied the impact of lenti-viral transduction on the glioma tropism of human or murine HPC. Transduction of human or murine HPC with a GFP lentivirus (lenti-GFP) did not interfere with the glioma-mediated attraction of HPC. Bone marrow reconstitution of C57Bl/6 mice with syngeneic GFP-transgenic lineage-depleted bone marrow cells (lin- BM) was as efficient as reconstitution with syngeneic lin- BM transduced ex vivo with lenti-GFP. SMA-560 gliomas growing orthotopically in lenti-GFP-reconstituted VM/Dk mice recruited GFP-positive bone marrow-derived cells. Thus, lentiviral transduction did not interfere with the attraction of exogenously injected HPC or endogenous bone marrow-derived cells by experimental gliomas. Lenti-GFP-HPC implanted directly into tumor-free brains were not tumorigenic. The intravenous injection of lenti-GFP-HPC in glioma-bearing mice did not alter the survival of otherwise untreated animals and had no impact on the survival benefit conferred by cerebral irradiation. Taken together, genetic manipulation of HPC with lenti-GFP neither made these cells tumorigenic nor interfered with their glioma tropism.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
