Additionally, another CDK4/6 inhibitor, abemaciclib, showed significant activity in HER2+ preclinical models, supporting the hypothesis that CDK4/6 inhibitors may resensitize resistant tumors to the HER2 blockade [78].
Very recently, two research groups have reported independently that augmentation of miR-34a expression could resensitize CCa cells to 5-fluorouracil-based chemotherapy [18, 19], pointing to an essential involvement of this important tumor suppressor miRNA in the metabolism of chemotherapeutic agents.
It had been proposed that a curcumin-induced reduction in stemness could resensitize PDAC cell cultures to the commonly prescribed-but often resisted-Gemcitabine chemotherapy regimen.
In vitro experiments on neuronal cell lines under prolonged hyperinsulinemic conditions have shown that treatment with metformin was able to resensitize insulin signalling and prevent the molecular and pathological changes observed in AD neurons [47].
Thus, dihydromyricetin may promote the resistant ovarian cancer cells to resensitize to paclitaxel and doxorubicin through suppression of survivin expression [29].

Accordingly, two therapeutic strategies were currently used in the clinical trials: One was to inhibit the cytoprotective function of autophagy to improve the killing efficacy of chemotherapy drugs or resensitize the chemoresistant tumor cells to drugs; the other was to induce autophagic cell death in the apoptosis-defective tumor cells, which showed high resistance to apoptosis by activating autophagic pathways.
