Abnormal lysosomal trafficking and enhanced exosomal export of cisplatin in drug-resistant human ovarian carcinoma cells
Previous work has shown that cisplatin (CDDP) becomes concentrated in lysosomes, and that acquired resistance to CDDP is associated with abnormalities of protein trafficking and secretion. TheExpand
Increased Expression of the Copper Efflux Transporter ATP7A Mediates Resistance to Cisplatin, Carboplatin, and Oxaliplatin in Ovarian Cancer Cells
Purpose: The goal of this study was to determine the effect of small changes in ATP7A expression on the pharmacodynamics of cisplatin, carboplatin, and oxaliplatin in human ovarian carcinoma cells.Expand
A randomized controlled trial comparing intrathecal sustained-release cytarabine (DepoCyt) to intrathecal methotrexate in patients with neoplastic meningitis from solid tumors.
Standard treatment for neoplastic meningitis requires frequent intrathecal (IT) injections of chemotherapy and is only modestly effective. DepoCyt is a sustained-release formulation of cytarabineExpand
Contribution of the Major Copper Influx Transporter CTR1 to the Cellular Accumulation of Cisplatin, Carboplatin, and Oxaliplatin
The goal of this study was to determine the ability of the major copper influx transporter CTR1 to mediate the cellular accumulation of cisplatin (DDP), carboplatin (CBDCA), and oxaliplatin (L-OHP).Expand
A comparison of intravenous versus intraperitoneal chemotherapy for the initial treatment of ovarian cancer.
A phase III study was conducted comparing intraperitoneal (ip) versus intravenous (iv) cisplatin-based therapy for patients with newly diagnosed ovarian cancer to determine if the pharmacologicExpand
Intraperitoneal cisplatin with systemic thiosulfate protection.
Seventeen patients with intraperitoneal tumors were treated by 4-hour intraperitoneal dialysis with cisplatin alone, or in combination with an intravenous neutralizing agent, sodium thiosulfate.Expand
Copper transporters regulate the cellular pharmacology and sensitivity to Pt drugs.
Recent studies have demonstrated that the major Cu influx transporter CTR1 regulates tumor cell uptake of cisplatin (DDP), carboplatin (CBDCA) and oxaliplatin (L-OHP), and that the two Cu effluxExpand
Cellular accumulation of the anticancer agent cisplatin: a review.
Acquired resistance to cisplatin (DDP) is a major clinical problem in the treatment of ovarian, testicular, and head and neck carcinomas; decreased accumulation of DDP is the most consistentlyExpand
Randomized trial of a slow-release versus a standard formulation of cytarabine for the intrathecal treatment of lymphomatous meningitis.
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of a slow-release formulation of cytarabine (DepoCyt; Chiron Corp, Emeryville, CA, and Skye Pharma, Inc, San Diego, CA) that maintains cytotoxicExpand
Copper Transporters and the Cellular Pharmacology of the Platinum-Containing Cancer Drugs
Multiple lines of evidence indicate that the platinum-containing cancer drugs enter cells, are distributed to various subcellular compartments, and are exported from cells via transporters thatExpand
