Résumé
Metastasis in children with neuroblastoma (NB) is a poor prognostic factor despite intensive therapy. In the near future, stem cell factor (SCF) is likely to be used clinically to accelerate bone marrow (BM) recovery after high-dose chemotherapy in patients with advanced NB. The high frequency of BM metastases in NB could be secondary to BM-derived human growth factors (HGF) modulating the adhesion, secondary growth (or both) of circulating metastatic NB cells. To test this hypothesis, we studied the in vitro effects on NB cell lines grown in chemically defined medium of SCF, interleukin (IL)-1 beta, IL-3, IL-6, basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) used alone or in combination. The antigenic expression of NB-associated cell adhesion molecules (CAM) HLA class 1, intercellular CAM-1, neural-CAM and CD44 were assayed by monoclonal antibodies and flow cytometry, and DNA synthesis by 3H-thymidine uptake. The expression of CAM was not modulated by SCF or other HGFs. An increase in thymidine uptake was induced by bFGF alone in IMR-32 cells, while SCF and other HGFs had no notable effect. Our results indicate that SCF and other BM-derived HGFs are unlikely to have a generalised effect on the expression of adhesion molecules by NB cells or proliferation. The clinical administration of recombinant human SCF to children with NB should be safe.
