Cisplatin is used to treat various types of cancer, including metastatic testicular tumors, metastatic ovarian tumors, lymphomas, germ cell tumours and advanced bladder cancer.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Cisplatin acts in several ways to interfere with DNA/RNA synthesis and replication and cell division, and to cause DNA mutation and damage, all of which lead to cell death/apoptosis. Due to the complex and varied nature of nucleic acids we do not include DNA or RNA as targets on this database.
