Abstract: RIDR-PI-103 is a novel reactive oxygen species (ROS)-induced drug release prodrug with a self-cyclizing moiety linked to a pan-PI3K inhibitor (PI-103). Under high ROS, PI-103 is released in a controlled manner to inhibit PI3K. The efficacy and bioavailability of RIDR-PI-103 in breast cancer remains unexplored. Cell viability of RIDR-PI-103 was assessed on breast cancer cells (MDA-MB-231, MDA-MB-361 and MDA-MB-453), non-tumorigenic MCF10A and fibroblasts. Matrigel colony formation, cell proliferation and migration assays examined the migratory properties of breast cancers upon treatment with RIDR-PI-103 and doxorubicin. Western blots determined the effect of doxorubicin ± RIDR-PI-103 on AKT activation and DNA damage response. Pharmacokinetic (PK) studies using C57BL/6J mice determined systemic exposure (plasma concentrations and overall area under the curve) and T1/2 of RIDR-PI-103. MDA-MB-453, MDA-MB-231 and MDA-MB-361 cells were sensitive to RIDR-PI-103 vs. MCF10A and normal fibroblast. Combination of doxorubicin and RIDR-PI-103 suppressed cancer cell growth and proliferation. Doxorubicin with RIDR-PI-103 inhibited p-AktS473, upregulated p-CHK1/2 and p-P53. PK studies showed that ~200 ng/mL (0.43 µM) RIDR-PI-103 is achievable in mice plasma with an initial dose of 20 mg/kg and a 10 h T1/2. (4) The prodrug RIDR-PI-103 could be a potential therapeutic for treatment of breast cancer patients.
