AbstractCancer therapies have been shown to induce cardiovascular complications. The aims of this study were to establish an in vitro induced pluripotent stem cell model (iPSC) of anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity (ACT) from patients with an aggressive form of cancer.ACT-iPSC-CM generated from individuals with CD20+ B-cell lymphoma cancer who had received high doses of DOX and suffered cardiac dysfunction were observed to be persistently more susceptible to DOX toxicity compared to control-iPSC-CM. ACT-iPSC-CM exhibited increased DOX-dependent disorganized myofilament structure and cell death, as well as higher reactive oxygen species (ROS) compared to controls. Importantly, analysis of engineered heart muscle (EHM) from ACT-iPSC-CM showed an impaired DOX-dependent mechanical functionality. Transcriptome profiles of EHM are in line with a disturbed adjustment to DOX-dependent alteration of Ca2+ homeostasis in ACT-iPSC-CM. Furthermore, genetic variants in different cardiac key regulators were uncovered.In conclusion, we developed the first human iPSC-CM and EHM model of DOX-induced cardiac dysfunction in patients with B-cell lymphoma. Our results suggest that DOX-related stress resulted in decreased contractile activity and finally in heart failure in ACT patients.Brief summaryDevelopment of the first human iPSC-CM model of DOX-induced cardiac dysfunction in patients with aggressive B cell lymphoma and high-dose DOX treatment.
