dc.description.abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The clinical impact of antiangiogenic agents remains controversial. Therefore, elucidating the pharmacological properties of these compounds is a pivotal issue. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH: In our study, malignant and normal tissues of sunitinib-treated tumour-bearing mice were analysed by matrix assisted laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry imaging (MALDI-MSI). The expressions of sunitinib's key target angiogenic receptors were studied by immunofluorescent labelling. KEY RESULTS: Sunitinib and its fragment ions were ubiquitously detected by MALDI-MS in malignant and normal tissues. Major metabolites were identified in blood and solid tissues, while minor drug metabolites were traceable only in blood. Tumour growth and intratumoural VEGFR-2 expressions were significantly reduced in sunitinib-treated mice, while the expression of the other targeted receptors (VEGFR-2, PDGFR- alpha/-beta or FGFR-1) remained unaffected. Within tumour tissue, the near proximity of sunitinib metabolites with the precursor ion suggested the in situ processing of the drug. There were intratumoural areas where the signal intensity of sunitinib correlated with VEGFR-2 expression. CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: This is the first study that demonstrates MALDI-MSI as a versatile platform to study the intratumoural localization of an unlabeled antiangiogenic drug. The combination of MALDI-MSI and immunofluorescence analysis can provide further insights into the molecular interaction of drug compounds and their targets within tumour tissue.
