Kaye Beatson Oncology Centre, Western Infirmary, Bearsden, Glasgow G61 1BO, United Kingdom Multi-drug resistance (MDR) is an unfortunate term, since it implies resistance to a wide range of drugs. In fact the origin of the MDR phenomenon is the preclinical observation of cross resistance to a specific group of natural products, particularly anthracyclines, vinca alkaloids and epipodophyllotoxins.

A further problem with the use of verapamil, discussed by Kerr et al. [22], is the possibility of pharmacokinetic interactions between this drug and cytotoxic agents such as adriamycin, by virtue of its effect on hepatic and possibly renal blood flow. Nevertheless, verapamil has remained the lead compound in clinical trials, and despite these reservations it has been used with encouraging preliminary results in patients with refractory multiple myeloma and nonHodgkin's lymphoma [23]. Although numbers of cases are small and studies to date have been non-randomised, clinical responses have been noted in cases with proven P-gyppositive tumours with the use of "MDR" drugs in conjunction with verapamil infusions.

Tamoxifen has also been used clinically in combinalion with verapamil despite the absence of convincing laboratory data for either an additive or synergistic effect. n, and taking an empirical approach, FIgueredo et al. [32] performed a non-randomised trial in small cell lung cancer in which patients received chemotherapy (including adriamycin and etoposide) together with tamoxifen and verapamil. They proposed that the response rate and survival seen was superior to that seen in previous studies, but in the absence of randomised trials, such data are difficult to assess, particularly in small cell lung cancer.
