Abstract

A method involving the administration of nucleoside analogs to circumvent resistance attributable to the enhanced DNA repair capacity of cancer cells is described. The nucleoside analogs function as suicide substrates for DNA repair enzymes. A method of screening nucleoside analogs for utility as antitumor agents and a screening assay to individual recurrent tumors is described.
