Platinum agents in the treatment of osteosarcoma: efficacy of cisplatin vs. carboplatin in human osteosarcoma cell lines.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Cisplatin (cDDP), when used either alone or, more often, in combination with other agents, especially adriamycin, achieves a high response rate in osteosarcoma. Its use, however, is limited by severe nephro- and neuro-toxicity. Second generation platinum compounds, most notably carboplatin (CBDCA), have been developed in order to attempt to… (More)
