Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

L1210/0 cells

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMF is >12.5 mM. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37 °C for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while.

Reaction Conditions

0, 0.5, 1, 2, 4 and 8 μg/mL; 2 hrs


At low concentrations, Cisplatin induced minimal cell death. At higher concentrations, cell death was obvious with only 4% viability. By 10 days after incubation, these few survivors begun to grow and became the predominant cells in the population.

Animal experiment [2]:

Animal models

Nude mice bearing human ovarian cancer OVCAR-3 cell xenografts

Dosage form

5 mg/kg, i.v.; at day 0 and day 7


Cisplatin (5 mg/kg) given at the day 0 and 7 induced a tumor growth inhibition (GI) (85.1%) of the OVCAR-3 cell xenografts.

Other notes

Please test the solubility of all compounds indoor, and the actual solubility may slightly differ with the theoretical value. This is caused by an experimental system error and it is normal.

Cisplatin is a highly effective and broad-spectrum chemotherapeutic agent [1].

Cisplatin is an anticancer agent with some side effects. It is believed to induce apoptosis through several mechanisms. The traditional mechanism is that cisplatin enters the cell, interacts with the DNA guanine bases and forms the inter- or intra-strand chain cross-linking, then prevents the replication of DNA. This formation can also induce apoptosis by activating p53. Cisplatin was also found to cause ROS generation and increase lipid peroxidation, which leads cells to the apoptotic pathway. In addition, cisplatin induces apoptosis with the caspase-dependent pathway. In cochlear cells, cisplatin treatment results in the increase of caspases-3 and -9 and causes the cochlear damage side effect [1].
