Abstract

To study tamoxifen resistance-stimulated growth, 30 female ovariectomized nude mice were implanted with tamoxifen-resistant tumors and treated with 10-1000 μg/day of tamoxifen citrate subcutaneously. Tamoxifen stimulated MCF-7 tumor growth in a dose-dependent manner, with tumoral tamoxifen concentrations increasing proportionally to the dose (1-13 nmol/g), as measured by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Flow-cytometric analysis revealed that tamoxifen-resistant tumors had a different DNA content as compared with wild-type MCF-7 cells. In contrast to earlier results, these data suggest that tamoxifen resistance-stimulated growth is associated with increasing rather than decreasing tumoral tamoxifen concentrations. Furthermore, the observed ploidy changes in the tamoxifen-resistant tumors imply that a genetic basis may exist for the development of tamoxifen resistance.
