Summary of "In vitro and in vivo antitumor activities of three novel binuclear platinum(II) complexes with 4'-substituted-2,2':6',2″-terpyridine ligands."

Herein, we report the design and synthesis of three novel binuclear platinum(II) complexes, [Pt(tpbtpy)Cl][Pt(DMSO)Cl] (tpbtpy-Pt), [Pt(dthbtpy)Cl][Pt(DMSO)Cl]⋅CHOH (dthbtpy-Pt), and [Pt(qlbtpy)Cl][Pt(DMSO)Cl]⋅CHOH (qlbtpy-Pt) with 4'-(3-thiophenecarboxaldehyde)-2,2':6',2″-terpyridine (tpbtpy), 4'-(3,5-bis (1,1-dimethylethyl)-2-hydroxy-benzaldehyde)-2,2':6',2″-terpyridine (dthbtpy) and 4'-(2-quinolinecarboxaldehyde)-2,2':6',2″-terpyridine (qlbtpy) as ligands, respectively. All three novel binuclear platinum(II) complexes tpbtpy-Pt, dthbtpy-Pt, and qlbtpy-Pt were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, spectroscopic analysis (ESI-MS, IR, H NMR), and elemental analysis. Additionally, the cytotoxicity of tpbtpy-Pt, dthbtpy-Pt and qlbtpy-Pt was assessed with human non-small cell lung cancer cell line (NCIH460 cells), yielding IC values in the range of 0.35-12.09 μM with tpbtpy-Pt as the most potent and qlbtpy-Pt as the least potent complexes. Mechanistic studies indicated that tpbtpy-Pt and dthbtpy-Pt induced apoptosis through mitochondrial dysfunction and telomerase inhibition. In a NCIH460 xenograft model, when administered at 10.0 mg kg every 2 days, tpbtpy-Pt was shown to significantly reduce tumor growth (tumor growth inhibition rate (IR) = 70.1%, p < 0.05). Therefore, tpbtpy-Pt is a promising Pt(II) complex for further translational studies and clinical evaluation as an antitumor agent.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Methods of investigating the effectiveness of anticancer cytotoxic drugs and biologic inhibitors. These include in vitro cell-kill models and cytostatic dye exclusion tests as well as in vivo measurement of tumor growth parameters in laboratory animals.

In vivo methods of screening investigative anticancer drugs, biologic response modifiers or radiotherapies. Human tumor tissue or cells are transplanted into mice or rats followed by tumor treatment regimens. A variety of outcomes are monitored to assess antitumor effectiveness.

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.

The transfer of mammalian embryos from an in vivo or in vitro environment to a suitable host to improve pregnancy or gestational outcome in human or animal. In human fertility treatment programs, preimplantation embryos ranging from the 4-cell stage to the blastocyst stage are transferred to the uterine cavity between 3-5 days after FERTILIZATION IN VITRO.
