ABSTRACT Oncostatin M (OSM) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) are growth factors for prostate cancer (PC). Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and urokinase-type plasminogen-activator (u-PA) have been implicated in tumour progression. A possible interaction between IL-6, OSM, u-PA and VEGF in PC was investigated.
Primary prostate epithelial cells (PPEC) and DU-145 PC cells were treated with IL-6 or OSM and the effects on u-PA and VEGF expression were studied. Plasma levels of IL-6, OSM, u-PA and VEGF were determined in patients with or without PC.
In DU-145 cells, OSM and IL-6 up-regulated u-PA and VEGF significantly. Higher levels of IL-6 and OSM in metastasising PC than in nonmetastasising PC and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and correlations between IL-6, OSM, u-PA and VEGF were found.
OSM and IL-6 increase u-PA and VEGF in DU-145 cells but not in PPEC and possibly, by promoting matrix degradation and angiogenesis, could play a role in the pathogenesis of prostate cancer.

    ABSTRACT: Oncostatin M, a member of the interleukin-6 family of cytokines, has been implicated in tumorigenesis of human prostate cancer. In the current study, we demonstrate that oncostatin M promotes human adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cell-stimulated tumor growth in an in vivo xenograft transplantation model of the human prostate cancer cell line PC-3M-luc-C6, a PC3M cell line expressing the luciferase gene. Conditioned medium derived from oncostatin M-treated mesenchymal stem cells stimulated adhesion of PC-3M-luc-C6 cells. We identified TGFBI and periostin, extracellular matrix proteins implicated in tumorigenesis and metastasis, as oncostatin M-induced secreted proteins in mesenchymal stem cells. Treatment with oncostatin M stimulated secretion of periostin and TGFBI from mesenchymal stem cells in a time-dependent manner. Immunodepletion of TGFBI and periostin from conditioned medium derived from oncostatin M-treated mesenchymal stem cells resulted in abrogation of adhesion of PC-3M-luc-C6 cells stimulated by oncostatin M-conditioned medium. In addition, small interfering RNA-mediated silencing of TGFBI and periostin resulted in abrogation of cell adhesion stimulated by oncostatin M-conditioned medium. These results suggest that mesenchymal stem cell-derived TGFBI and periostin play a key role in tumorigenesis by stimulating adhesion of prostate cancer cells.

    ABSTRACT: Oncostatin M is a secreted cytokine involved in homeostasis and in diseases involving chronic inflammation. It is a member of the gp130 family of cytokines that have pleiotropic functions in differentiation, cell proliferation, and hematopoetic, immunologic, and inflammatory networks. However, Oncostatin M also has activities novel to mediators of this cytokine family and others and may have fundamental roles in mechanisms of inflammation in pathology. Studies have explored Oncostatin M functions in cancer, bone metabolism, liver regeneration, and conditions with chronic inflammation including rheumatoid arthritis, lung and skin inflammatory disease, atherosclerosis, and cardiovascular disease. This paper will review Oncostatin M biology in a historical fashion and focus on its unique activities, in vitro and in vivo, that differentiate it from other cytokines and inspire further study or consideration in therapeutic approaches.

    ABSTRACT: Human pancreatic cancer is one of the most fatal of all solid tissue malignancies. Pancreatic inflammation plays a key role in the development of pancreatic malignancy mediated by pro-inflammatory signalling cascades. Despite advances in surgery and radiation oncology, no significant improvements in overall survival have yet been achieved. Recent investigations suggest a crucial role of interleukin-33 (IL-33), a novel IL-1 family cytokine, in the pathogenesis of chronic pancreatitis and possibly pancreatic cancer. However, the precise role of IL-33 in pancreatic carcinogenesis is poorly understood. As IL-33 mediates its effects via the heterodimeric ST2L/IL-1 receptor accessory protein (IL-1RAcP) receptor complex, we investigated the influence of IL-33 alone, IL-33 combined with IL-1 and other inflammatory cytokines on IL-33 receptor/ligand mRNA expression and production of tumorigenic factors in the highly metastatic human pancreatic adenocarcinoma cell line Colo357. Our results demonstrated that IL-1 and IL-3 up-regulated IL-33 mRNA while IL-12 showed the opposite effect. We also detected a counter-regulatory effect of IL-33 and IL-1 on the mRNA expression of soluble IL-33 receptor ST2 and membrane-bound receptor ST2L. Furthermore, IL-33 and IL-1 acted synergistically in up-regulating secretion of pro-inflammatory IL-6. IL-33 alone stimulated spontaneous release of pro-angiogenic IL-8, but it did not affect IL-1-induced IL-8 secretion. IL-33/IL-1 effects on cytokine production appear to be mediated via NF-κB activation. These data argue for the pro-inflammatory role of IL-33 in Colo357 cells implying that IL-33 might act as a crucial mediator in inflammation-associated pancreatic carcinogenesis.
