General description

Carboplatin is used to treat testicular, ovarian and breast cancer.

Application

Carboplatin has been used:
  • in chemotherapy-induced thrombocytopenia mouse model and treatment
  • to induce cell death in a large subset of colorectal cancer cells
  • in the evaluation of cell proliferation and chemosensitivity
  • as a positive control for suppressed cell growth

Packaging

100, 250 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Carboplatin is a platinum-based antineoplastic drug that damages DNA by forming intrastrand cross-links with neighboring guanine residues. Tumors acquire resistance to these drugs through the loss of DNA-mismatch repair (MMR) activity and the resultant decrease in the induction of programmed cell death.
