Chemotherapy is an effective method to treat patients with advanced malignant tumors. However, tumor cells can develop resistance to multiple drugs during the therapy process, leading to treatment failure. Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are a new class of regulatory RNAs that can regulate endogenous gene expression. Previous studies revealed the diagnostic and prognostic value of circRNAs in malignant cancer and other diseases, but few reports have examined their association with clinical drug resistance. In this review, we summarize the up-to-date information regarding the role of circRNAs in the resistance of tumors to chemotherapy and discuss specific regulatory mechanisms. This analysis is expected to provide direction for the prevention and management of drug resistance in tumors.

The linear mRNAs transcribed under alternative RNA splicing and overexpression/amplification of the androgen receptor (AR) gene are poor prognostic biomarkers of castrate-resistant prostate cancer (PC...
Circular RNAs are highly expressed in the brain, accumulate with ageing and may play important functional roles. Hence, their role in age-related neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's dise...
Drug-resistant epilepsy associated with central nervous system tumors is generally caused by low grade gliomas. This group of tumors is usually found in brain eloquent areas, such as the insular lobe,...
Tumor-derived extracellular vesicles and their contents are involved in the development of human malignancies. Circular RNAs, enriched in extracellular vesicles, can regulate diverse cellular processe...
Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are RNA transcripts that belong to non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs), whose implication in human cancers has been recently demonstrated. However, the specific role of multiple circRNAs...
Drug resistant HIV strains often develop in patients who have taken anti-HIV drugs for an extended time. However, these drug resistant HIV strains do not always cause an increase in the l...

Double-stranded DNA of MITOCHONDRIA. In eukaryotes, the mitochondrial GENOME is circular and codes for ribosomal RNAs, transfer RNAs, and about 10 proteins.
Tuberculosis resistant to ISONIAZID and RIFAMPIN and at least three of the six main classes of second-line drugs (AMINOGLYCOSIDES; polypeptide agents; FLUOROQUINOLONES; THIOAMIDES; CYCLOSERINE; and PARA-AMINOSALICYLIC ACID) as defined by the CDC.
Tuberculosis resistant to chemotherapy with two or more ANTITUBERCULAR AGENTS, including at least ISONIAZID and RIFAMPICIN. The problem of resistance is particularly troublesome in tuberculous OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS associated with HIV INFECTIONS. It requires the use of second line drugs which are more toxic than the first line regimens. TB with isolates that have developed further resistance to at least three of the six classes of second line drugs is defined as EXTENSIVELY DRUG-RESISTANT TUBERCULOSIS.
Strains of the genus Enterococcus that are resistant to the antibiotic VANCOMYCIN. The enterococci become resistant by acquiring plasmids carrying genes for VANCOMYCIN RESISTANCE.
Tumors or cancer of the PROSTATE which can grow in the presence of low or residual amount of androgen hormones such as TESTOSTERONE.
