New Class of Platinum-Based Anti-Tumor Drugs, Bisplatinates, Demonstrates Potent Anti-Tumor Activity and Ability to Overcome Resistance to Currently Available Platinum-Based Agents
Date:11/30/2009

ted the ability to overcome tumor resistance to cisplatin mediated by DNA mismatch repair defects. The complexes showed marked anti-tumor efficacy in platinum refractory tumors, with significant activity in terms of tumor growth inhibition and tumor growth delay.

"Platinum-based compounds are cornerstone agents in the treatment of very common cancers such as cancers of the lung, colon, and ovary and are also widely used in other gynecological tumors, testicular cancers, and cancers of the esophagus, head and neck. They are increasingly being used for salvage therapy in lymphoma. However, resistance to palatinate compounds is common. The current results are encouraging as they demonstrate that the bisplatinates are not only more effective in human tumor models than the current agents, but also capable of overcoming some forms of palatinate resistance," said Jack Singer, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of CTI.
