Beschreibung

The efficacy of chemotherapeutic management of cancer is often severely limited. This book provides comprehensive reviews of multidrug resistance mechanisms. It includes up-to-date techniques for detection and imaging of drug transporters.

Chemotherapy is one of the major treatment options for cancer patients; however, the efficacy of chemotherapeutic management of cancer is severely limited by multidrug resistance, in that cancer cells become simultaneously resistant to many structurally and mechanistically unrelated drugs. In the past three decades, a number of mechanisms by which cancer cells acquire multidrug resistance have been discovered. In addition, the development of agents or strategies to overcome resistance has been the subject of intense study. This book contains comprehensive and up-to-date reviews of multidrug resistance mechanisms, from over-expression of ATP-binding cassette drug transporters such as P-glycoprotein, multidrug resistance-associated proteins, and breast cancer resistance p- tein to the drug ratio-dependent antagonism and the paradigm of cancer stem cells. The book also includes strategies to overcome multidrug resistance, from the development of compounds that inhibit drug transporter function to the modulation of transporter expression. In addition, this book contains techniques for the detection and imaging of drug transporters, methods for the investigation of drug resistance in animal models, and strategies to evaluate the efficacy of resistance reversal agents. The book intends to provide a state-of-the-art collection of reviews and methods for both basic and clinician investigators who are interested in cancer multidrug resistance mechanisms and reversal strategies.

Klappentext

With the devastating complication of cancer cells becoming simultaneously resistant to many structurally and mechanistically unrelated drugs, the efficacy of chemotherapeutic management of cancer often becomes severely limited. In Multi-Drug Resistance in Cancer, leading researchers in the field provide comprehensive and up-to-date reviews of multidrug resistance mechanisms, from over-expression of ATP-binding cassette drug transporters such as P-glycoprotein, multidrug resistance-associated proteins, and breast cancer resistance protein, to the drug ratio-dependent antagonism and the paradigm of cancer stem cells. The extensive volume also includes strategies to overcome multidrug resistance, from the development of compounds that inhibit drug transporter function to the modulation of transporter expression, as well as techniques for detection and imaging of drug transporters, methods for investigation of drug resistance in animal models, and strategies to evaluate the efficacy of resistance reversal agents. As a volume in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, this work provides the kind of detailed description and implementation advice that is crucial for getting optimal results.

Authoritative and cutting-edge, Multi-Drug Resistance in Cancer offers a state-of-art collection of reviews and methods for both basic and clinician investigators who are interested in the vital study of cancer multi-drug resistance mechanisms and reversal strategies.
