Platinum Coordination Complexes as Antitumor Agents


The development of platinum coordination complexes as antitumor agents began in the 1960s, and the highest antitumor activity was exhibited by cisplatin, approved by FDA in 1978. Improved versions carboplatin [C2043] and oxaliplatin [O0372] were developed to avoid the serious side effects and the problem with resistance associated with the use of cisplatin.1-5)
The platinum complexes diffuse to the tumor cell, where they undergo hydrolysis displacement of their one chloride or carboxylate group leading to a platinum cation. The resulting cation coordinates to the guanine N7-position of DNA give a coordination cation. Then, intrastrand cross-linking occurs to anther guanine via further hydrolysis displacement of the remaining chloride or carboxylate. The forming [Pt(NH2R)2]2+ ― DNA complex distort the DNA helix (Fig. 1 and 2)6). Thus, DNA duplication is hindered, which ultimately triggers tumor cell apoptosis.3)
