An agent often used in cancer treatment, cisplatin may cause acute renal failure after even a single dose. Recent laboratory studies confirmed the induction of renal cell apoptosis by cisplatin. Reduction in cell viability as well as increase in the number of cells with fragmented nuclei correlated with cisplatin exposure in a dose-dependent manner. Gel(More)
Purpose. We evaluated the combination of UCN-01 plus cisplatin and sought to determine how the cell cycle effects of each agent affected the combined response. Cisplatin-induced DNA damage results in cell cycle arrest, primarily at the S and G2 checkpoints, providing the opportunity for DNA damage repair prior to mitosis. Thus, strategies to enhance(More)
