2010). However, since plasma and tumor concentrations of paclitaxel were not measured during these tumor growth experiments, it remains unclear if inhibition of Abcb1a/1b took place primarily in intestinal and hepatic tissue or also in tumor tissue, and thus what was the primary cause of the improved antitumor efficacy: enhanced oral availability, or also increased tumor penetration of paclitaxel. Further experimentation will be needed to resolve this matter. 2 Apical ABC transporters in the oral bioavailability of rationally designed anticancer drugs In contrast to the traditional cytotoxic drugs, which usually work against all actively dividing cells, rationally designed anticancer drugs are designed to interfere with specific molecules involved in cancer cell growth and survival.
