Studies concerning the action of platinum compounds against immune mechanisms focusing activated lymphocytes involved could bring novelties in the field of cancer cell biochemistry and function.
Our aim is to perform a multidisciplinary and translational study that impact patient care in colorectal carcinoma. The project objective is to evaluate the platinum-containing drugs effect on stem cells in colorectal carcinoma, this population being responsible for the resistance against chemotherapy treatment. It is feasible to assess the platinum-treated stem cells, with accent on apoptosis, multidrug resistance, metabolism and cell signaling.
The project intends to investigate the percent of stem cells having genetic mutations, and the effect of platinum-based compounds on cell rectal cancer lymph node spread which display chemoresistance versus targeted anti-EGFR therapy.
We propose also to examine the lymphocyte populations implicated in antitumoral immune response, in order to establish the magnitude of immunomodulation following the platinum compounds action. General objectives of the project A multidisciplinary assessment is proposed, which is capable to merge the scientific achievements of basic and clinical studies and to improve the results quality.

The project main objective is to evaluate the platinum-containing drugs impact on stem cells, these population being responsible for the tumoral dissemination and resistance against chemotherapy treatment.
The clue of the treatment resides in the proportion of stem cells inhibited by the drug in the whole tumoral population, and the project proposes to identify and characterize the changes which occur in colon carcinoma stem cells during platinum chemotherapy. It is feasible to compare using functional genomic methods the platinum-treated stem and non-stem in the tumoral mass with accent on cells apoptosis, multidrug resistance, metabolism and cell signaling.
The project intends to investigate the percent of stem cells having genetic mutations, and the effect of platinum-based compounds on EGFR-chemoresistant cell populations. One of our objectives is to scan the lymphocyte populations implicated in antitumoral immune response, emphasizing the CD8 positive T lymphocytes and the natural killer cells, in order to establish the magnitude of the changes in human body immune response potential following the platinum rectal cancer lymph node spread action.

Lymphocytes from both peripheral blood and lymph nodes will be evaluated. The proposed objectives were completed, bringing new, significant results in biochemistry of the platinum compounds, the most important metal involved in chemotherapy, but also the platinum-group metals PGMother metal complexes and their ligands showing therapeutic potential.
The chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane in the study of tumor angiogenesis D. Ribatti The chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane CAM is commonly used as an experimental in vivo assay to study both angiogenesis and antiangiogenesis in response to tissues, cells or soluble factors.
We revealed multiple aspects of platinum-based chemotherapy, which join the outcomes of basic biochemical, genomic, proteomic and immune methods in order to improve the therapeutically benefits.

Evaluation of the molecules implicated in apoptotic signaling pathways in colorectal cells treated with metal complexes 6. Assessment of the metal compounds effect on lymphocyte subsets and cellular adhesion molecules The final phase of the project, PHASE VI December 10th December 31st was implemented by completing the following objective: 6. Evaluation of the molecules implicated in apoptotic signaling pathways in colorectal cells treated with metal complexes In order to identify new biomarkers connected to the apoptotic processes induced by metal compounds, the biologic effect of a new class of dysprosium complexes was studied; the antiproliferative effect of the Dy compounds was compared with that of standard platinum-based drugs.
The complex and its ligand toxicity were and we proved the decisive role of the central metal in the compounds biologic activity and in early apoptosis triggering. The treated tumor cell populations were exposed to a uniform magnetic filed, with an intensity which does not affected the cells viability, and we observed that unlike to the ligand or the platinum drugs, the magnetic field applied concomittant with in Dy III Na ampy 4]n treatment induced a stronger growth inhibitory effect on tumor populations.
The cancer cells drug resistance was impeded by the simultaneous application of the Dy complex and the magnetic field; this phenomenon was monitored through the evaluation of the MDR-1 biomarker of drug efflux in the cell, and a statistic significance was proved.

Chem, The complexes were tested in vitro in order to elucidate their biologic activity against human colon cells in vitro. The inhibitory effect against the tumor cell populations was tested by MTT method and the degree of the toxicity was quantified using the IC50 half inhibitory concentration parameter, which revealed a superior toxicity against the invasive, mutant colon cancer cells. The compounds potential to induce the programmed cell death was evaluated through the identification by Annexin V binding of phosphatidyl-serine translocated to the que es tener el virus del papiloma outer membrane during apoptosis.
In parallel, the number of necrotic cells was evaluated.
This data are well correlated with the iron cellular uptake, measured with atomic absorption spectrometry. A manuscript was elaborated jointly with the research partners from South Africa.
Assessment of the metal compounds effect on lymphocyte subsets and cellular adhesion molecules The activity implied to achieve the phase VI objective was the study of two complexes of the Platinum Group Metals PGMsteric isomers, having as central metal Pd II and the ligand 1e,6e -1,7-bis 4-dimethylamino phenyl hepta-1,6-diene-3,5 dione, in two different conformations.
Their antiproliferative effect was tested with colorimetric viability methods; the ligand was inactive, while the two complexes half rectal cancer lymph node spread concentrations were significant lower was of ligand, proving a structure-activity relationship.
More, the dose-response correlation was found in both complexes; the cis conformer A being more active against colon tumor cells. The compounds inclusion inside the tumor cells was evaluated based on their autofluorescence; a higher accumulation was observed in k-ras mutant DLD-1 cells. The second research direction was to elucidate the role of A si B, on cellular adhesion molecules.
In this purpose we studied the effect of the metal complexes A and B against the peripheral blood mononuclear cells PBMCemphasizing on the compounds modulator effect on the neural cell adhesion molecule NCAM or CD56 biomarker, which characterizes the cytotoxic natural killer cell subset. In the antitumor immune response an important role is of adhesion and activation marker CD11a ITGAL and of tumor necrosis factor CD27; their expression was quantified using the flow cytometry and a statistic significant correlation was found with rectal cancer lymph node spread presence of CD56 markers on the PBMC cell membrane.
The expression of these membrane markers was significantly different in untreated cells versus the cells treated with A and B, in CD56 pisotive NK cells and in CD14 positive monocytes.
