The effect of oestrogens and medroxyprogesterone acetate on the uptake of cytotoxic drugs by MCF-7 breast cancer cells.


Previous studies have shown that human breast cancer cells (MCF-7) show an increased response to a number of cytotoxic drugs after 48 h pretreatment with medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA). As there is evidence that MPA can influence membrane fluidity, we have examined the effect of pre-treatment with MPA on the uptake of methotrexate (MTX) and vincristine… (More)
