     概要を見る

    Recent reports have suggested that 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA), which is a precursor to protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), leads to selective accumulation of PpIX in tumor cells and acts as a radiation sensitizer in vitro and in vivo in mouse models of melanoma, glioma, and colon cancer. In this study, we investigated the effect of PpIX under X-ray irradiation through ROS generation and DNA damage. ROS generation by the interaction between PpIX and X-ray was evaluated by two kinds of probes, 3'-(p-aminophenyl) fluorescein (APF) for hydroxyl radical (•OH) detection and dihydroethidium (DHE) for superoxide (O2•-). •OH showed an increase, regardless of the dissolved oxygen. Meanwhile, the increase in O2•- was proportional to the dissolved oxygen. Strand breaks (SBs) of DNA molecule were evaluated by gel electrophoresis, and the enhancement of SBs was observed by PpIX treatment. We also studied the effect of PpIX for DNA damage in cells by X-ray irradiation using a B16 melanoma culture. X-ray irradiation induced γH2AX, DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) in the context of chromatin, and affected cell survival. Since PpIX can enhance ROS generation even in a hypoxic state and induce DNA damage, combined radiotherapy treatment with 5-ALA is expected to improve therapeutic efficacy for radioresistant tumors.

     概要を見る

    X-ray responsivity resulting in the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) was investigated in 9600 organic compounds that were selected by considering their structural diversity. We focused on superoxides that were primarily detected using dihydroethidium (DHE) and hydroxyl radicals, that were identified fluorometrically using 3'-(p-aminophenyl) Fluorescein (APF). Many organic compounds were discovered that responded to the DHE and/or APF assay using X-ray irradiation. These results suggest that some of these organic compounds emit either superoxides or hydroxyl radicals whereas others emit both under the influence of X-ray irradiation. The response of the derivatives of a hit compound with a partial change in the structure was also investigated. The products produced from DHE by X-ray irradiation were identified by HPLC to confirm the integrity of the process. Although, the reactions were suppressed by the superoxide dismutase (SOD), not only 2-hydroxyethidium (2-OH-E+), but also ethidium (E+) were detected. The results suggest that apart from a direct reaction, an indirect reaction may occur between DHE and the superoxides. Although X-ray responsiveness could not be inferred due to the molecular complexity of the investigated compounds, delineation of these reactions will facilitate the development of the next generation of radiosensitizers.

  • Verification of 5-Aminolevurinic Radiodynamic Therapy Using a Murine Melanoma Brain Metastasis Model.

     概要を見る

    Melanoma is a highly aggressive cancer with a propensity for brain metastases. These can be treated by radiotherapy, but the radiation-resistant nature of melanoma makes the prognosis for melanoma patients with brain metastases poor. Previously, we demonstrated that treatment of mice with subcutaneous melanoma with 5-aminolevurinic acid (5-ALA) and X-rays in combination, ("radiodynamic therapy (RDT)"), instead of with 5-ALA and laser beams ("photodynamic therapy"), improved tumor suppression in vivo. Here, using the B16-Luc melanoma brain metastasis model, we demonstrate that 5-ALA RDT effectively treats brain metastasis. We also studied how 5-ALA RDT damages cells in vitro using a B16 melanoma culture. Cell culture preincubated with 5-ALA alone increased intracellular photosensitizer protoporphyrin IX. On X-ray irradiation, the cells enhanced their ∙OH radical generation, which subsequently induced γH2AX, a marker of DNA double-strand breaks in their nuclei, but decreased mitochondrial membrane potential. After two days, the cell cycle was arrested. When 5-ALA RDT was applied to the brain melanoma metastasis model in vivo, suppression of tumor growth was indicated. Therapeutic efficacy in melanoma treatment has recently been improved by molecular targeted drugs and immune checkpoint inhibitors. Treatment with these drugs is now expected to be combined with 5-ALA RDT to further improve therapeutic efficacy.

  • Assessment of harmfulness and biological effect of carbon fiber dust generated during new carbon fiber recycling method.

     概要を見る

    Concern over the effects of nanomaterials on human health has risen due to the dramatic advances in the development of various technologies based on nanomaterials. Gifu Prefecture and Gifu University are developing technologies for recycling used carbon fiber because the waste disposal process is highly cost and energy intensive. However, generation of carbon fiber dust during the recycling process is a serious issue, especially in the occupational environment. Recycling requires carbonization by partial firing treatment at 500℃ followed by firing treatment at 440℃: these processes produce dust as a by-product. It is important to study the influence of carbon fibers on human health at a molecular level. In this study, three types of carbon fibers - before recycling, after carbonization, and after firing were evaluated for their toxic effects on mice. During the breeding period, no loss in body weight was confirmed. Further, by staining the lung tissue sections, it was found that pulmonary fibrosis did not occur. We found that these carbon fibers might not possess severe toxicity. However, we also found that the toxicity varies according to firing treatment. Furthermore, we found that firing treatment reduces the potential hazard to human health.

  • The Truth of Toxicity Caused by Yttrium Oxide Nanoparticles to Yeast Cells.

    Akihiro Moriyama, Ukyo Takahashi, Youta Mizuno, Junko Takahashi, Masanori Horie, Hitoshi Iwahashi

    Journal of nanoscience and nanotechnology   19 ( 9 ) 5418 - 5425  2019年09月  [査読有り]  [国際誌]

     概要を見る

    Yttrium oxide (Y₂O₃) nanoparticles have widespread applications; however, toxicity due to these nanoparticles has also been reported. In this study, we evaluated the in vitro toxicity of Y₂O₃ nanoparticles according to the technical specifications published by the International Standard Organization (ISO/TS 19337:2016). We used Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model microorganism represented the environment. We carried out catch ball analysis of yttrium oxide and yttrium ion toxicities. The result showed that Y₂O₃ nanoparticles (20 mg/5 ml) and YCl₃ (5 mg/5 ml) treatment caused oxidative stress in yeast cells. Based on transcriptome analysis, fluorescent spectroscopy, and solubility analysis of Y₂O₃ nanoparticles, we conclude that the toxicity is due to yttrium ions derived from the nanoparticles. The ions induce oxidative stress and cause protein denaturation, which in turn induces proteasome formation to eliminate denatured proteins. Yttrium nanoparticles induce oxidative stress, which has associated with heavy metal ions. Thus, the use of yttrium nanoparticles or yttrium ions must be controlled like heavy metals.

     概要を見る

    Bone-cartilage bi-phase element was constructed of native chondrocyte of beagle and P-TCP scaffold block. Assembling such a regenerative element enables to form arbitral configuration which fits the shape of large defect on joints without sacrificing other part of the body. The bone-cartilage bi-phase element was grafted in a distal femur condyle of a beagle for 2 month. The extracted femur sample including the bi-phase element was scanned by a high-resolution, micro-focus X-ray tomography to investigate the fusion process in vivo. The 3D tomography measurement showed that the hosting cancellous bone intruded into the scaffold and a part of the scaffold was replaced with the cancellous bone. Mechanical properties of grafted element was evaluated by a push-out test, indicating that scaffold was firmly fused with the cancellous bone of the host. Also, a preliminary microarray gene expression analysis was conducted to investigate the effect of X-ray radiation on the regenerative devices.
