Malignant melanomas are characterized by a high intrinsic resistance to chemotherapy. Multiple drug resistance (MDR) can be mediated by transport proteins such as MDR-1, multidrug resistance-associated protein (MRP) or lung resistance protein (LRP). The cytotoxic analogue of somatostatin AN-238 consisting of 2-pyrrolinodoxorubicin (AN-201) linked to a somatostatin analogue RC-121 binds to receptors for somatostatin and is targeted to tumors expressing these receptors. We evaluated the… CONTINUE READING
