Lobaplatin as a single agent and in combination with tumour necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is investigated in in-vitro models of p53-negative triple-negative breast cancers (TNBCs) and compared with a model of oestrogen receptor-positive p53-positive breast cancer. In addition, the induction of programmed cell death by lobaplatin(More)
