Abstract

The influence of cimetidine on patients under cisplatin treatment for cancer is controversial. It has moderate or no effects on several types of cancer and its effects on the nephrotoxicity induced by cisplatin are uncertain. To examine the binding properties and antiproliferative effects of the known anticancer noble metals, cimetidine (cim) was complexed to platinum(II) and palladium(II). The crystal structure of the Pt–cim compound shows two molecules of cimetidine coordinated to the metal through thioether sulfur and imidazolic nitrogen whereas spectroscopic studies in solution for Pd–cim reveal that the ratio of the metal to cimetidine is 1:1 with identical coordination environments. To determine the antitumor activity of the drugs, the interaction of the metallic complexes and free cimetidine with DNA was assessed. Their cytotoxic activity was compared with that of cisplatin.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
