Thus, PKC activation can increase drug resistance in multidrug-resistance (MDR) cells [15], and epidermal growth factor receptors increase in some drug-resistant breast cancer cells [16]. Increases in transcription factors have also been described, as has modulation of cis-platinum resistance by PKC activators and cyclic AMP analogues [17]. Since these pathways are also used by activating oncogenes, approaches designed to block growth via these pathways may also interact with cytotoxic agents in a favourable way.

C. Jordan stimulated growth of these tumors can be inhibited by treatment with the pure antiestrogen ICI 164384 [23]. There is currently some controversy as to the mechanism by which tamoxifen-stimulated growth in this model is achieved. One current hypothesis is that the tumor somehow acquires the ability to metabolize tamoxifen to an estrogenic compound, to a compound with minimal anti estrogenic activity, or to both [9]. One of the principal metabolites of tamoxifen is 4-hydroxytamoxifen (4-0HT), a potent antiestrogen with high affinity for the estrogen receptor [24].
