Natural Polyphenols-Platinum Nanocomplexes for Combination Cancer Therapy

Natural Polyphenols-Platinum Nanocomplexes for Combination Cancer Therapy

News release, Polyphenols Applications - March 9, 2023

Nanocarriers have been employed extensively to enhance drug delivery efficacy and reduce the side effect. However, carrier materials for drug delivery have challenging aspects, including safety concerns, low drug content, complexity in preparation, and low reproducibility.

Xiang et al. proposed a facile, universal, and green preparation way to use natural polyphenols to build platinum nanocomplex with stable structure, proper size, and high Pt content.

The nanocomplexes are constructed by metal-polyphenol coordination using natural polyphenols and 1,2-diaminocyclohexane-Pt (II), enabling dual-responsive drug release behavior. For proof of concept, they demonstrated the antitumor activity of the Pt nanocomplex using a representative tannic acid-Pt nanocomplex (denoted as PTI).

PTI was able to induce intensive tumor cell apoptosis, trigger immunogenic cell death (ICD), remarkably promote cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) infiltration in tumors, and significantly reduce immunosuppression of the tumor microenvironments, thus stimulating potent antitumor immune responses and showing effective antitumor activity by synergizing immune checkpoint blockade (ICB) therapy.
