Effects of sequentially applied single and combined temozolomide, hydroxychloroquine and AT101 treatment in a long-term stimulation glioblastoma in vitro model

Abstract

Purpose Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is a poorly curable disease due to its heterogeneity that enables single cells to survive treatment regimen and initiate tumor regrowth. Although some progress in therapy has been achieved in the last years, the efficient treatment of GBMs is still a clinical challenge. Besides the standard therapeutic drug temozolomide (TMZ), quinoline-based antimalarial drugs such as hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and BH3 mimetics such as AT101 were considered as possible drugs for GBM therapy. Methods We investigated the effects of sequentially applied single and combined TMZ, HCQ and AT101 treatments in a long-term stimulation GBM in vitro model. We performed all investigations in parallel in human astrocytes and two differen- tially TMZ-responsive human GBM cell lines and adjusted used drug concentrations to known liquor/plasma concentrations in patients. We determined amounts of dead cells and still remaining growth rates and depicted our results in a heatmap-like summary to visualize which sequential long-term treatment schedule seemed to be most promising. Results We showed that sequential stimulations yielded higher cytotoxicity and better tumor growth control in comparison to single TMZ treatment. This was especially the case for the sequences TMZ/HCQ and TMZ + AT101/AT101 which was as effective as the non-sequential combination
