Treatment of human colorectal cancer cell lines induces MRP1 and MRP3 but not other members of the MRP family. Reported to significantly increase the cytotoxicity of the anthracyclines (doxorubicin, daunorubicin and epirubicin), as well as teniposide, VP-16 and vincristine. Sulindac was tested for its effect on heat-induced denaturation of albumin in vitro28 and its ability to bind to human plasma protein.29


5, 25 g in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Sulindac is non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug and an analgesic that has antiproliferative and apoptotic effects. It inhibits the expression and activity of cyclooxygenase-2 in human colon cancer cells25,26 and reduces tumor burden in adenomatous polyposis patients.27
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory; preferential inhibitor of COX-1.

Pharmacological targeting of breast cancer stem cells (CSCs) is highly promising for the treatment of breast cancer, as the small population of CSCs appears responsible for tumor initiation and progression and also for resistance to conventional treatment. Here we report


Protein-based Drug Transport

Protein-based drug transporters are found in most tissues including liver, kidney, intestine, and brain. These transporters are particularly important in cancer treatment and multi-drug resistance research. Understanding the specific mechanisms of tumor cell transporters is becoming an essential aspect of chemotherapeutic drug design.
