Abstract

Regenerated silk fibroin (SF) is a natural biomacromolecule with excellent biocompatible and biodegradable properties. In this study, cyclic pentapeptide cRGDfk and Chlorin e6 (Ce6) were conjugated to SF polypeptides, and genipin was used to prepare 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) doped SF-based nanoparticles (NPs). The photodynamic therapy (PDT) potential and active targeting properties were systematically investigated in αvβ3 integrin receptor over-expressed MGC-803 cells in vitro. The results revealed that treatment with the multifunctional SF-based NPs and PDT, high level of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and cell death can be induced in MGC-803 cells. Combine with PDT, the in vivo antitumor effect of the SF-based NPs was evaluated in gastric cancer xenograft mice model. The results demonstrated that the SF-based NPs had ideal active tumor targeting property and the tumor burden can be reduced noticeably. Furthermore, the organs of mice in SF NPs treatment groups did not show obvious toxicity, demonstrating good biocompatibility and security profiles of SF NPs in vivo. Overall, our results suggest that the SF-based NPs are promising drug delivery carriers, together with PDT, the multimodality therapy could be potential regimen in future clinical cancer treatment.
