Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) recently revealed a new platinum compound that could eliminate cancer cells more effectively than cisplatin, a popular chemotherapy anticancer drug. Drugs that have platinum are the most widely used most powerful cancer drugs. On the downside, these agents have toxic side effects and the cancer cells can eventually become resistant; as such, the new discovery is exciting for...

SEATTLE, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (CTI) (Nasdaq and MTA: CTIC) announced today that its new class of platinum-based anti-tumor compounds, termed bis-platinates, demonstrated a stronger anti-tumor potency and activity compared to currently available platinum-based compounds as well as the ability to overcome cisplatin-resistance in cancer cell lines. The results were presented in a paper titled "Novel Bis-platinum Complexes Endowed with an Improved...

Daqing Li and colleagues, at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, have identified in vitro and in mice a way to enhance the anticancer effects of the commonly used platinum-based drug cisplatin. For many forms of cancer, including testicular, ovarian, and lung cancer, platinum-based drugs that cause DNA damage are the first choice treatment. However, the utility of these drugs is often limited by the enhanced ability of cancer cells to repair their DNA. As the...

Researchers in the Department of Chemistry at Wake Forest University in collaboration with colleagues at the Wake Forest University Health Sciences Comprehensive Cancer Center have developed a new class of platinum-based anti-tumor drugs that animal studies have shown to be 10 times more effective than current treatments in destroying certain types of lung cancer cells. The results were published in the December 11 issue of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry and highlighted in...

Phosphaplatins can effectively kill ovarian, testicular, head and neck cancer cells with potentially less toxicity than other drugs, U.S. researchers said. The new class of compounds could be less harmful than current cancer treatments on the market such as cisplatin and carboplatin because they don't penetrate the cell nucleus and attach to DNA, said lead author Rathindra Bose, who conducted the work while at Northern Illinois University. Conventional drugs can interfere with the functions...

Agents bind to different targets than conventional drugs A new class of compounds called phosphaplatins can effectively kill ovarian, testicular, head and neck cancer cells with potentially less toxicity than conventional drugs, according to a new study published this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The compounds could be less harmful than current cancer treatments on the market such as cisplatin and carboplatin because they don't penetrate the cell...
