Abstract Attempts to develop an ex vivo gene therapy strategy for hemophilia A, using either primary T cells or bone marrow (BM) stem/progenitor cells have been unsuccessful, due to the inability of these cell types to express coagulation factor VIII (FVIII). As an alternative, we evaluated the potential of BM-derived stromal cells which can be readily obtained and expanded in vitro. Human and murine BM stromal cells were transduced with an intron-based Moloney murine leukemia virus (MoMLV) retroviral vector expressing a B-domain-deleted human factor VIII cDNA (designated as MFG-FVIIIdeltaB). Transduction efficiencies were increased 10- to 15-fold by phosphate depletion and centrifugation, which obviated the need for selective enrichment of the transduced BM stromal cells. This resulted in high FVIII expression levels in transduced human (180 +/- 4 ng FVIII/10[6] cells per 24 hr) and mouse (900 +/- 130 ng FVIII/10[6] cells per 24 hr) BM stromal cells. Pseudotyping of the MFG-FVIIIdeltaB retroviral vectors with the gibbon ape leukemia virus envelope (GALV-env) resulted in significantly higher transduction efficiencies (100 +/- 20\%) and FVIII expression levels (390 +/- 10 ng FVIII/10[6] cells per 24 hr) in transduced human BM stromal cells than with standard amphotropic vectors. This difference in transduction efficiency correlated with the higher titer of the GALV-env pseudotyped viral vectors and with the higher GALV receptor (GLVR-1) versus amphotropic receptor (GLVR-2) mRNA expression levels in human BM stromal cells. These findings demonstrate the potential of BM stromal cells for gene therapy in general and hemophilia A in particular.
