A novel multidrug resistance modulator, RS-33295-198, circumvented drug resistance in human, mouse, and Chinese hamster cell lines overexpressing P-glycoprotein. It enhanced the antiproliferative activity of doxorubicin, vincristine, etoposide, and paclitaxel and increased doxorubicin retention in multidrug-resistant hamster CHRC5 cells. RS-33295-198 modulated doxorubicin resistance in a murine P388/ADR leukemia model when administered ip via continuous minipump delivery, ip by bolus injection, and orally; it also improved the efficacy of vincristine toward P388/VCR leukemia when given ip or po. RS-33295-198 showed weak activity in enhancing doxorubicin efficacy against a multidrug-resistant human sarcoma xenograft.
