Modelling the situation observed in vivo, we examined the effects of thalidomide and its analogues in co-cultures of myeloma and endothelial cells. It was found that myeloma cells in co-culture had significantly lower levels of CC-10004- and CC-1088-induced apoptosis than those cultured alone. Interestingly, basal apoptosis was also lower in RPMI-8226/S co-cultured with endothelial cells compared to myeloma cell culture. Our data suggest that myeloma/endothelial cell interactions in co-culture have a significant protective effect on both basal and drug-induced levels of apoptosis in myeloma cells.
