Effect of cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (II) on metallothionein induction and trace element metabolism in rats fed different amounts of dietary zinc.

Abstract

Recent studies have suggested that the induction of metallothionein synthesis in kidneys of mice by the acute administration of bismuth and other trace elements might protect against cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (II) nephrotoxicity. The present study was designed to determine the effects of dietary zinc and cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (II) on the induction… (More)
