Dofequidar fumarate is a multidrug-resistant (MDR) - reversal agent .
Dofequidar fumarate is a quinoline derivative and has highly potent reversing effect on multidrug-resistant tumor cells. It prevents the transport of antitumor drugs through interacting with the drug-efflux pump P-glycoprotein directly and thereby reverses MDR. In vincristine (VCR)-resistant P388/VCR cells and Adriamycin (ADM)- resistant P388/ADM cells, dofequidar fumarate at 1μM and 3μM can completely reverse the drug resistance. It also shows significant effects on the MDR K562 cells. Furthermore, in mice model bearing HCT-15 xenografts, combination therapy of dofequidar fumarate and docetaxel induces remarkable tumor growth inhibition. Dofequidar fumarate also shows significant reversing effect in MCF-7/ADM-bearing mice [1, 2].
