Abstract Title: Effect on tumor growth by TGF-?1/COX-2 siRNA combination product (STP705) in a human cholangiocarcinoma (HuCCT-1) xenograft tumor model in nude mice

Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is the second most common form of incurable hepatobiliary cancer and represents a massive health care burden worldwide with no effective treatment. Over expression of the genes for TGF-?1 and COX-2 have been well-characterized as playing key roles in tumorigenesis of CCA. STP705 consists of a combination of 2 siRNAs silencing the TGF-?1 and COX-2 genes delivered using a polypeptide nanoparticle delivery system based on Histidine-Lysine co-Polymer (HKP). We have demonstrated that STP705 inhibits the growth of HuCCt-1 xenograft tumors in nude mice (a human cholangiocarcinoma model) and the data is presented in the abstract.
