Defects within the nanoscale UiO-66 metal-organic framework (MOF) are created to lock a hybrid phosphonoacetate ligand through Zr-O-P linkages, leaving the carboxyl group free to anchor cisplatin prodrug cis, cis, trans-[Pt(NH3)2Cl2(OH)2]. A drug loading of 256.5 mg g-1 (25.7 wt% based on cisplatin) was achieved with a Zr6 : Pt : P ratio of 1.5 : 1 : 1, which surpasses defect-free UiO-66 and several other MOF carriers. This framework exhibited a burst release of its payload in PBS solution in the first 2 h, releasing 71% of the drug, including a 50% payload release in less than 1 h. This work demonstrates that MOF defects can be intentionally engineered to achieve a high drug loading, and serves as an alternative to drug encapsulation using the pore void and through the association of the functionalized ligand.

A clinical Evaluation to determine metal ion release from 4th generation metal-on-metal hip articulating surfaces in cementless total hip arthroplasty.
Organic cation transporter consisting of twelve transmembrane domains and expressed primarily in the kidney. It transports a wide range of metabolites, drugs, and neurotransmitters from the blood to the KIDNEY TUBULES, including DOPAMINE; SEROTONIN; CHOLINE; and CISPLATIN.
A competitive serotonin type 3 receptor antagonist. It is effective in the treatment of nausea and vomiting caused by cytotoxic chemotherapy drugs, including cisplatin, and has reported anxiolytic and neuroleptic properties.
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.
Nanometer-sized particles that are nanoscale in three dimensions. They include nanocrystaline materials; NANOCAPSULES; METAL NANOPARTICLES; DENDRIMERS, and QUANTUM DOTS. The uses of nanoparticles include DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS and cancer targeting and imaging.
Supramolecular networks that consist of ordered arrangements of organic electron donor linkers (usually ditopic or polytopic organic carboxylates) and metal cations. They can have an extremely high surface area and adjustable pore size that allows for the insertion of other molecules capable of various functions such as catalysis, capture of carbon dioxide, and drug delivery.
