Abstract

The combination of radiotherapy, temozolomide and valproic acid (VPA) has shown some promise in retrospective analyses of patients with glioblastoma, although their mechanisms of action remain unknown.We investigated the in vitro and in vivo effects of pretreating glioma cells with temozolomide and VPA as an immunization strategy to boost an adaptive immune response in a syngeneic mouse model.Temozolomide and VPA induced autophagy in GL261 glioma cells, and caused tumor antigen-specific T-cells to become activated effector T-cells. Mice with a pre-existing glioma showed no improvement in clinical outcome when immunized with temozolomide- and VPA-treated glioma cells.Although temozolomide and VPA treatment of glioma cells can boost the adaptive immune response, in the context of a vaccine therapy, additional factors are necessary to eradicate the tumor and improve survival.
