Glucose oxidase (GOx) can effectively catalyze glucose intogluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in the presence of O2, which is considered as an attractive starvation strategy for cancer therapy. However, the autophagy phenomenon protects tumor cells from starvation therapy, limiting the therapy effect, thus autophagy inhibition could be used as a troubleshooting method to enhance tumor starvation therapy. Herein, biodegradable dendritic mesoporous organosilicon nanoagent (DMON) was used as the nanocarrier to deliver GOx and 3-MA (an autophagy
inhibition agent), designed as [email protected]/3-MA. T his formulation could have a synergetic effect on autophagy inhibition and starvation therapy. All in vitro and in vivo results demonstrated that autophagy inhibition obviously enhanced the efficacy of starvation therapy, leading to tumor growth suppression. Our strategy will provide a new way to enhance the efficacy of starvation cancer therapy.
