Abstract: Inhibition of drug efflux pumps such as P-glycoprotein
represents a versatile approach for overcoming multidrug resistance
in tumor therapy. Although numerous compounds have been identified as
being able to inhibit P-glycoprotein, only little is known on
the molecular basis of the drugprotein interaction. This article
gives an overview of the different pharmacoinformatic approaches we
used to develop new propafenone-type modulators of P-glycoprotein. These
include 2D-and 3D-QSAR studies, artificial neural networks, and photoaffinity
