Flurbiprofen, a hydrophobic COX inhibitor, was coordinated axially with oxoplatin to form a new conjugate cis, cis, trans-[Pt(IV)(NH3)2Cl2(flurbiprofen)2]. The successful synthsis of this new conjugate was confirmed by 1H, 13C and 195Pt NMR. The potential of this conjugate being reduced to cisplatin and subsequently exerting its DNA cross-linking ability was verified using cyclic voltammetry (CV), HPLC and mass spectrum (MS). This conjugate showed markedly higher cytotoxicity on many cancer cell lines than cisplatin, flurbiprofen and physical mixture (mol ratio, cisplatin: flurbiprofen=1:2) of them. This is consistent with the result of apoptosis-inducing assay. This conjugate spontaneously assembles carrier-free nanoparticles in aqueous solution, which is confirmed by DLS, TEM, SEM and AFM, thus facilitates cellular uptake, markedly improves its cytotoxicity and apoptosis-inducing ability in vitro.

Most ovarian cancer patients respond well to initial platinum-based chemotherapy. However, within a year, many patients experience disease recurrence with a platinum resistant phenotype that responds ...
Platinum-based chemotherapy is one of the most important strategies for treatment of colorectal cancer. To improve the therapeutic efficiency, adjuvant drugs were sought to sensitize colorectal cancer...
Quality of life analysis of the MITO-8, MaNGO, BGOG-Ov1, AGO-Ovar2.16, ENGOT-Ov1, GCIG study comparing platinum-based versus non-platinum-based chemotherapy in patients with partially platinum-sensitive recurrent ovarian cancer.
MITO-8 showed that prolonging platinum-free interval by introducing non-platinum-based chemotherapy (NPBC) does not improve prognosis of patients with partially platinum-sensitive recurrent ovarian ca...
In the present study, novel pH-responsive prodrug nanoparticles based on xylan-curcumin (xyl-cur) conjugate were developed to enhance the therapeutic efficacy of curcumin in cancer therapy. The synthe...
Active targeting of nanostructures containing chemotherapeutic agents can improve cancer treatment. Here, a three-way junction pocket DNA nanostructure was developed for efficient doxorubicin (Dox) de...
Investigators hypothesize that concurrent ribociclib treatment and chemotherapy will enhance the response to platinum-based therapy and maintenance therapy will slow ovarian cancer tumor g...
According to the free hormone hypothesis, the biological activity of a hormone is carried by the portion that is not bound to protein or its carrier in circulation. Based on this, we belie...
The primary objective is to compare the progression-free survival (PFS) of REGN2810 plus platinum-based doublet chemotherapy combination therapy (REGN2810/chemo) and REGN2810 plus platinum...
Dendritic cell-based cellular vaccine for tumor therapy has shown efficacy. This study is designed to perform a personalized clinical trial by first analyzing the expression of tumor assoc...
Primary objective is to investigate the efficacy in terms of 6 month progression free survival (PFS6) and objective response rate (ORR) of afatinib, in patients with advanced/metastatic ur...
Platinum. A heavy, soft, whitish metal, resembling tin, atomic number 78, atomic weight 195.09, symbol Pt. (From Dorland, 28th ed) It is used in manufacturing equipment for laboratory and industrial use. It occurs as a black powder (platinum black) and as a spongy substance (spongy platinum) and may have been known in Pliny's time as "alutiae".
Inorganic compounds which contain platinum as the central atom.
A sulfinylindene derivative prodrug whose sulfinyl moiety is converted in vivo to an active NSAID analgesic. Specifically, the prodrug is converted by liver enzymes to a sulfide which is excreted in the bile and then reabsorbed from the intestine. This helps to maintain constant blood levels with reduced gastrointestinal side effects.
An enzyme of long-chain fatty acid synthesis, that adds a two-carbon unit from malonyl-(acyl carrier protein) to another molecule of fatty acyl-(acyl carrier protein), giving a beta-ketoacyl-(acyl carrier protein) with the release of carbon dioxide. EC 126.96.36.199.
An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
