Replication Study: Coadministration of a tumor-penetrating peptide enhances the efficacy of cancer drugs.

eLife | Jan 19, 2017

In 2015, as part of the Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology, we published a Registered Report (Kandela et al., 2015) that described how we intended to replicate selected experiments from the paper "Coadministration of a tumor-penetrating peptide enhances the efficacy of cancer drugs" (Sugahara et al., 2010). Here we report the results of those experiments. We found that coadministration with iRGD peptide did not have an impact on permeability of the chemotherapeutic agent doxorubicin (DOX) in a xenograft model of prostate cancer, whereas the original study reported that it increased the penetrance of this cancer drug (Figure 2B; Sugahara et al., 2010). Further, in mice bearing orthotopic 22Rv1 human prostate tumors, we did not find a statistically significant difference in tumor weight for mice treated with DOX and iRGD compared to DOX alone, whereas the original study reported a decrease in tumor weight when DOX was coadministered with iRGD (Figure 2C; Sugahara et al., 2010). In addition, we did not find a statistically significant difference in TUNEL staining in tumor tissue between mice treated with DOX and iRGD compared to DOX alone, while the original study reported an increase in TUNEL positive staining with iRGD coadministration (Figure 2D; Sugahara et al., 2010). Similar to the original study (Supplemental Figure 9A; Sugahara et al., 2010), we did not observe an impact on mouse body weight with DOX and iRGD treatment. Finally, we report meta-analyses for each result.

OSF

OSF provides free and open source project management support for researchers across the entire research lifecycle. As a collaboration tool, OSF helps researchers work on projects privately with a limited number of collaborators and make parts of their projects public, or make all the project publicly accessible for broader dissemination. As a workflow system, OSF enables connections to the many services researchers already use to streamline their process and increase efficiency. As a flexible repository, it can store and archive research data, protocols, and materials. Structured projects: Access files, data, code, and protocols in one centralized location and easily build custom organization for your project - No more trawling emails to find files or scrambling to recover from lost data
 Controlled access: Control which parts of a project are public or private, making it easy to collaborate and share with the community or just your team
 Enhanced workflow: Automate version control, get persistent identifiers for projects and materials, preregister your research, and connect your favorite third party services directly to OSF Extensible Research. Automatically create a preprint, meeting abstract, or add to your institutional repository. Manage multi-institutional projects. Dependable Repository: OSF's Preservation Fund ensures that any data stored in the repository would be maintained and protected for 50 years.
