AbstractBACKGROUND: Glucuronidation represents a novel mechanism of intrinsic drug resistance in colon cancer cells. To safely reverse this mechanism in vivo, it is essential to identify which isoforms of UDP-glucuronosyltransferases are responsible for catalysing this drug metabolism in tumour tissue. MATERIALS AND METHODS: LC-MS was applied to measure rates of glucuronidation of two anticancer compounds (SN-38 and NU/ICRF 505) by patient colon cancer biopsies and paired normal colon. RESULTS: Three independent lines of enquiry indicated that, in the tumour specimens, SN-38 was glucuronidated primarily by UGT1A1, the isozyme generally recognised as being responsible for hepatic detoxification of this compound, while with NU/ICRF 505 two candidate isoforms emerged - UGT1A8 and/or UGT1A10 - both of which are not normally expressed in the liver. CONCLUSION: These data suggest that tumour selective modulation of this drug resistance mechanism in patients may be feasible with NU/ICRF 505 but more difficult to realise with SN-38. De novo drug resistance is recognised as contributing significantly to the poor response rates of colorectal cancer (CRC) to chemotherapy (1). Nonetheless, the underlying mechanisms responsible for drug insensitivity remain
