2020 Pediatric Grand Rounds | Targeted Delivery of Therapeutic Peptides Using Supramolecular Nanomaterials to Drug Intercellular Protein-Protein Interactions in Cancer

November 12, 2020

Molecular engineering has only recently solved many issues regarding stable drug delivery of non-soluble compounds. Ideal treatments would harness the theoretical power of nanodrug delivery and packaging with meaningful biologic purpose. This is arguably just beginning to occur and the future remains bright for more potent drugs targeting a wide array of protein-protein interactions within a cell.

Despite a veritable "treasure trove" of promising pre-clinical therapeutic peptides, their clinical translation has been hampered by an inability to deliver them specifically to target cells and to insert them into the cytosol. This has limited the ability to push the therapeutic boundaries against refractory tumors using synthetic compounds because of off-target effects. Widening the therapeutic window of these drugs should allow for more potent efficacy. The limitation deficit has been how to effectively do this in a clinically meaningful way.

Target Audience

Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Physicians, Advance Practice Practitioners, staff and research team.

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate the importance and difficulties in drugging intracellular protein-protein interactions.
  • Examine the impact of hydrocarbon stapling on alpha-helical peptides and their use as molecular mimics.
  • Outline the therapeutic impact of first priming a cancerous cell to be more sensitive to targeted therapies.
