Spatiotemporal control of gene expression in bone-marrow derived cells of the tumor microenvironment induced by MRI guided focused ultrasound

Abstract : The tumor microenvironment is an interesting target for anticancer therapies but modifying this compartment is challenging. Here, we demonstrate the feasibility of a gene therapy strategy that combined targeting to bone marrow-derived tumor microenvironment using genetically modified bone-marrow derived cells and control of transgene expression by local hyperthermia through a thermo-inducible promoter. Chimera were obtained by engraftment of bone marrow from transgenic mice expressing reporter genes under transcriptional control of heat shock promoter and inoculated sub-cutaneously with tumors cells. Heat shocks were applied at the tumor site using a water bath or magnetic resonance guided high intensity focused ultrasound device. Reporter gene expression was followed by bioluminescence and fluorescence imaging and immunohistochemistry. Bone marrow-derived cells expressing reporter genes were identified to be mainly tumor-associated macrophages. We thus provide the proof of concept for a gene therapy strategy that allows for spatiotemporal control of transgenes expression by macrophages targeted to the tumor microenvironment.
