The new platinum(IV) complex cis,trans,cis-[PtCl(2)(CH(3)COO)(2)-(NH(3))(1-adamantylamine)] [adamplatin(IV)] seems promising for the perspective application in therapy of corresponding tumors. It is therefore of great interest to understand details of mechanisms underlying its biological efficacy. Cellular uptake of the drug, alterations in the target DNA(More)
The biological activity of cis and trans complexes of formula [PtCl2(HN = C(OMe)Me)2] has been investigated. The iminoether ligands can have either E or Z configuration about the C = N double bond, therefore EE, EZ and ZZ isomers are obtainable. Substitution of iminoether with EE configuration for amine leads to unexpectedly high antitumor activity for the(More)
The cis- and trans-dichloro- and diiodo-platinum(II) complexes containing two acetonimines (cis- and trans-[PtX(2){HN=C(CH(3))(2)}(2)], 1 and 2 for X = Cl and 1' and 2' for X = I, respectively) or one acetonimine and one ammine (cis- and trans-[PtX(2)(NH(3)){HN=C(CH(3))(2)}], 3 and 4 for X = Cl and 3' and 4' for X = I, respectively) have been prepared from(More)
The platinum-iminoether complexes trans-[PtCl2[E - HN = C(OEt)Me]2] (1) and trans-[PtCl2[Z - HN = C(OEt)Me[2] (2), differing in the configuration of the iminoether ligands, were investigated for cytotoxicity towards human tumor cell lines, the involvement of DNA as a cytotoxic target, and their DNA binding mode. The cytotoxicity of isomer 1 was comparable(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the possible influences of amino acid (AA) intakes on growth and bone status in preterms. STUDY DESIGN Newborns, weighing <1250 g, received standard (S) or higher (H) parenteral AA intakes (3 or 4 g kg(-1) per day). Anthropometry, biochemistry and quantitative ultrasound (metacarpus bone transmission time (mcBTT), in μs) were measured(More)
Both trans- and cis-[PtCl2(NH3)(L)] compounds have been synthesized, L representing either the imino ether HN=C(OMe)Me having a Z or E configuration at the C=N double bond, or the cyclic ligands % MathType!Translator!2!1!AMS LaTeX.tdl!TeX -- AMS-LaTeX! <![CDATA[% MathType!MTEF!2!1!+- % feaafeart1ev1aaatCvAUfeBSn0BKvguHDwzZbqefeKCPfgBGuLBPn %(More)
It has been shown recently that some analogues of clinically ineffective trans-diamminedichloroplatinum (II) (transplatin) exhibit antitumor activity. This finding has inverted the empirical structure-antitumor activity relationships delineated for platinum(II) complexes, according to which only the cis geometry of leaving ligands in the bifunctional(More)
The platinum complex trans-[PtCl2¿E-HN=C(OMe)Me¿2] was compared to cisplatin for cytotoxicity towards tumour cells, and for cellular pharmacological properties in A2780 and cisplatin-resistant A2780/Cp8 ovarian cancer cells. Trans-[PtCl2¿E-HN=C(OMe)Me¿2] was comparably cytotoxic to cisplatin (mean IC50 after 72 h exposure = 6. 1 microM and 7 microM,(More)
The X-ray structural and NMR characterization of a bis-guanine derivative of a cisplatin analogue designed to reduce the rate of the Pt-N7 rotation of the coordinated guanine nucleobases by more than 1-million-fold is reported. The [Pt{(+/-)-Me(2)dab}(9-EtG)(2)](NO(3))(2) (Me(2)dab = N,N'-dimethyl-2,3-diaminobutane, 9-EtG = 9-ethyl-guanine) complex(More)
