‘Et tu, inhibitor?’: the potential for HIV inhibitors to prime P-gp-mediated chemoresistance in cancer

The major hurdle regarding effective cancer treatment is the ability to prevent and overcome the mechanisms that drive chemoresistance. It is through chemoresistance that tumor populations are given opportunity to acquire more aggressive, metastatic phenotypes and decrease the chances of overall survival in patients carrying the pathophysiological burden of chemoresistant tumors. Based on this foundational issue regarding chemoresistance and cancer severity, efforts within the research community have been directed toward elucidating the molecular mechanisms that facilitate chemoresistance, many of which work in concert with one another.
