Title
(EN) GENERATION OF FUNCTIONAL DENDRITIC CELLS
(FR) GÉNÉRATION DE CELLULES DENDRITIQUES FONCTIONNELLES
Abstract
(EN) Nanoparticles containing a photosensitizer configured to generate a reactive oxygen species when exposed to an appropriate wavelength of light can be used to enhance immunogenicity of cancer cells, such as breast cancer cells. Such enhanced immunogenicity cancer cells, or supernatants thereof, can be used to activate dendritic cells or cause dendritic cells to produce INF-gamma. Nanoparticles having mitochondria-targeting moieties are more effective at enhancing the immunogenicity of the cancer cells, or causing the dendritic cells to produce IFN-gamma, than nanoparticle lacking mitochondria-targeting moieties or free photosensitizer.
(FR) L'invention concerne des nanoparticules contenant un photosensibiliseur configuré pour générer des espèces réactives de l'oxygène lorsqu'il est exposé à une longueur d'onde appropriée de lumière qui peut être utilisée pour améliorer l'immunogénicité des cellules cancéreuses, telles que des cellules cancéreuses du sein. De telles cellules cancéreuses à immunogénicité accrue ou des surnageants de celles-ci peuvent être utilisé(e)s pour activer des cellules dendritiques ou entraîner les cellules dendritiques à produire de l'IFN gamma. Les nanoparticules ayant des fractions de ciblage de mitochondries sont plus efficaces à augmenter d'immunogénicité des cellules cancéreuses, ou à entraîner les cellules dendritiques à produire l'IFN-gamma, que des nanoparticules dépourvues de fractions de ciblage de mitochondries ou sans photosensibiliseur.
