Abstract

Background: Lung cancer originates in a diffusely damaged bronchial epithelium as a result of sequential and cumulative genetic alterations. We investigated the feasibility of in vivo gene replacement in endobronchial precancerous and cancerous cells by a regionally administered nonviral delivery system. Methods: After evaluating the in vitro transfection efficiency and cytotoxicity of a variety of cationic liposome-p53 formulations, a specific formulation, DP3-p53, was selected for further in vitro and in vivo evaluation. The ability of DP3-p53 to introduce the p53 gene in the normal bronchial epithelium was studied in transgenic mice that lack the p53 gene. The therapeutic effect of DP3-p53 administered intratracheally was studied in two nude mouse models of endobronchial human lung cancer by use of H358 (p53-null) and H322 (p53-mutant) cells. Results: DP3-p53 was able to effectively introduce and express the p53 gene and induce G1 arrest and apoptosis in H358 cells in vitro and to introduce and transcribe the p53 gene in the bronchial epithelium of transgenic mice that lack the p53 gene in vivo. In therapeutic experiments using groups of four or five mice each, administration of five intratracheal doses of DP3-p53 (2 μg or 8 μg DNA per dose) on days 4, 8, 12, 16, and 20 after intratracheal tumor inoculation significantly inhibited lung tumor formation and prolonged by approximately twofold the survival of mice bearing H358 or H322 endobronchial tumor cells in contrast to the survival among untreated mice and mice treated with the DP3-empty vector (P = .007 [two-sided logrank test] for mice bearing H358 cells and P = .008 [two-sided logrank test] for those bearing H322 cells). Conclusions/Implications: Liposome-based p53 delivery through the airways is a potentially effective strategy for the treatment of early endobronchial cancer. These results have important implications for the gene therapy and prevention of human lung cancer.
