  • Defects in apoptosis underpin both tumorigenesis and drug resistance, and because of these defects chemotherapy often fails. Understanding the molecular events that contribute to drug-induced apoptosis, and how tumors evade apoptotic death, provides a paradigm to explain the relationship between cancer genetics and treatment sensitivity and should enable a more rational approach to anticancer drug design and therapy.
