The in vivo effect of bryostatin-1 on paclitaxel-induced tumor growth, mitotic entry, and blood flow.

Pretreatment of tumor cells with the protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitor bryostatin-1 enhances the cytotoxicity of most chemotherapeutic agents. However, in the case of paclitaxel, this effect has been shown in vitro to be best achieved when bryostatin-1 follows (rather than precedes) paclitaxel treatment.
