Anticancer agents often cause drug-induced tetraploidy (DIT) in cancer cells. DIT is not only a mechanism of inherited drug resistance, but proliferating DIT cells can produce progeny with increased ploidy or aneuploid genomes that drive aggressive disease. Here, we explore combinatorial therapeutic strategies for either preventing or eliminating DIT cells.
