The dynamic effect of cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (DPP) and its aquated metabolite (DDP-OH) on a dimyristoylphosphatidylserine (DMPS) model membrane was investigated by pressure tuning vibrational spectroscopy. The native species (DDP-Cl) and the aquated species (DPP-OH) were both observed to bind to the carboxylate group of the serine as evidenced by(More)
High performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) techniques for the quantification of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in human plasma have been reported in the literature, however, a low limit of detection was generally found to result in a comparatively low extraction yield. We have developed a simple, rapid and sensitive HPLC method for the measurement of 5-FU in(More)
The chemotherapeutic benefit of synergistic drug combinations and higher drug dosages has generated interest in the application of these regimens to cancer patients. A major obstacle in the application of these strategies to the treatment of cancer is the dose-limiting toxicities of drug combinations. Sodium 2-mercaptoethane-sulfonate (mesna), a(More)
