Current prostate cancer treatment remains ineffective primarily due to ineffectual therapeutic strategies and numerous tumor-associated physiological barriers which hinder efficacy of anticancer agents. Therefore, the focus of this study was to investigate a new combination therapy approach simultaneously targeting the androgen-androgen receptor (AR) and X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein (XIAP) signaling pathways for treating prostate cancer. The effect of bicalutamide (antiandrogen), embelin (XIAP inhibitor) and their derivatives on the growth of prostate cancer cells in vitro and in vivo was first examined. Using a combination of MTT assay and isobologram analyses, combination of bicalutamide, embelin and their derivatives were observed to synergistic in their ability to inhibit cell growth. This effect was found to be cell line and schedule dependent. Since bicalutamide and embelin are extremely hydrophobic, polymeric micelles were fabricated using lactic acid and carbonate based copolymers specifically designed to improve drug solubility. Polymeric micelle formulations were found to increase the aqueous solubility of bicalutamide and embelin several fold. Additionally, the potential benefit of antiandrogen and XIAP inhibitor combination was confirmed in animal studies. Tumor growth was effectively regressed upon simultaneous treatment with antiandrogen and XIAP inhibitor formulated in polymeric micelles.
