Reduction of cis-diamminedichloroplatinum nephrotoxicity in rats by optimal circadian drug timing.


A prominent circadian rhythm in the nephrotoxicity of a therapeutic dose of cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (cisplatin) is demonstrated in female Fischer rats. Rats were randomized to receive two doses of either cisplatin or 0.9% NaCl solution 14 days apart at the times of either high or low values in their circadian rhythm of urinary volume. Toxicity was… (More)
