Breakthrough Approach to Combat Cancer Drug Resistance

Overcoming drug resistance by reducing the amount and changing the distribution of P-gp. a Confocal images and fluorescence intensity of P-gp in NCI/RES-ADR multidrug-resistant cancer cells without any treatment (control) and after treated with LSC nanoparticles with laser irradiation (LSC + L, 1 W cm−2 for 1 min). The data show that the P-gp distributes not only on the cell plasma membrane but also in the cytoplasm after the LSC + L treatment, whereas it is dominantly located on the plasma membrane for the cells in the control group.
