Multidrug Resistance and its Reversal: Mathematical Models

Classic multidmg resistance (MDR) is a phenomenon by which cells nonspecifically extrude noxious agents from the cytoplasm before lethal concentrations build up. Some chemotherapeutically treated tumors exhibit these same dynamics. In tumor systems, the most common mechanism of facilitating MDR is the upregulation of the P-glycoprotein pump. This protein forms a transmembrane channel, and after...

Clinical Reversal of Multidrug Resistance.

Reversal of drug resistance offers the hope of increasing the efficacy of conventional chemotherapy. We tested dexverapamil as a P-glycoprotein antagonist in combination with EPOCH chemotherapy in refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. In a cross-over design, dexverapamil was added to EPOCH after disease stabilization or progression occurred. Objective responses were observed in 10 of 41 assessable...

Fluoxetine and reversal of multidrug resistance.

This review centers on recent findings with respect to modulating cancer multidrug resistance (MDR) with the well-known antidepressant fluoxetine (prozac). The MDR phenomena and mechanisms are discussed, including the roles of ABC transporters as MDR-pumps and the potential involvement of cancer stem cells. The three generations of MDR reversal agents (chemosensitizers) are reviewed, introducin...

Reversal of Multidrug Resistance by Lipophilic Drugs1

The phenomenon of multidrug resistance implies that a wide spectrum of structurally and functionally unrelated chemotherapeutic drugs are recognized and processed by the molecular system which protects multidrug-resistant (MDR) cells against lipophilic cytotoxic drugs. This suggests that lipophilic agents with low toxicity may also be recognized and processed by this molecular system. At high c...

Reversal of multidrug resistance by RU 486.

P-Glycoproteins represent a family of drug efflux proteins that convey multidrug resistance to cells in which they are expressed. This phenomenon can lower the efficacy of drugs used in chemotherapy. The steroid progesterone has been shown to bind P-glycoproteins and inhibit their drug efflux. We report that the antiprogestin RU 486 can reverse multidrug resistance in cells overexpressing the m...
