Immunomodulatory effects of IP-10 chemokine along with PEI600-Tat delivery system in DNA vaccination against HPV infections.

Abstract : Although DNA vaccines represent an attractive approach for generating antigen-specific immunity, improvement of their potency is highly demanded. In the present study, three strategies including linkage to immunostimulatory molecules (N-terminal of gp96), co-administration of chemokines (IP-10 or RANTES) and PEI600-Tat as non-viral gene delivery system have been applied to enhance DNA vaccine efficacy against HPV infections. We found that C57BL/6 immunization with E7-NT-gp96 fusion gene led to increased level of IFN- compared to E7 alone. The fused genes showed considerable protective potency in tumor mice model. In addition, E7-NT-gp96 delivered with PEI600-Tat was more protective against E7-expressing tumors comparing with E7-NT-gp96 alone. Our results showed that co-administration of IP-10 with E7-NT-gp96 delivered by PEI600-Tat elicits significant IFN- production and consequently a strong preventive response against TC-1 tumor cells in contrast to increased tumor growth by RANTES co-delivery. Also in therapeutic experiment, our data showed that co-immunization of IP-10 at the same inoculation site of TC-1 along with E7-NT-gp96 delivery by PEI600-Tat is able to significantly suppress TC-1 tumor growth. The successful treatment by this immunization protocol was associated with the elevated levels of IFN- and IL-2 production in the lymph nodes. These data indicated that fusion of NT-gp96 to E7 in combination with IP-10 co-administration and PEI600-Tat delivery system can synergistically enhance the potency of HPV DNA vaccines. Therefore, this approach suggests a combinational therapeutic strategy against cervical and other HPV-related cancers.
