Paper Abstract

Bacteria-mediated cancer imaging and immunotherapy is emerging fields. However, most of the study related to targeting and monitoring of therapeutic response after bacterial therapy was done with tissue analysis after sacrificed the animal. To evaluate the theranostic efficacy of fluorescence encoded bacteria in vivo, the tumor should be made on the subcutaneous area due to the limitation of light penetration of the tissue material. However, the subcutaneous xenograft model doesn’t reflect the actual tumor microenvironment. In this study, we monitored theranostic bacteria in orthotopic tumor model with lab-built wide-field fluorescence endoscopy (WFE) and commercialized confocal endomicroscopy (CFEM) in vivo. First, orthotopic mouse colon cancer models were made by using endoscopic cancer cell implantation methods. Seconds, fluorescence emitting theranostic bacteria was constructed by using Salmonella strain. The bacteria were injected into the orthotopic colon tumor-bearing mice via tail vein injection. Finally, we serially monitored fluorescence signal emitted from theranostic bacteria with WFE and CFEM. Multiscale fluorescence image showed the accumulation of bacteria within the tumor area compared to normal tissue contrast. We expected that this endoscopic fluorescence imaging approaches can be used in the direct monitoring of bacterial immunotherapy in vivo.
