Abstract

PURPOSE: Two new series of platinum complexes with cytotoxic activity in vivo are [Pt(NRCH2)2L2], (R=polyfluorophenyl, L=pyridine or substituted pyridine) and [Pt(NRCH2CH2NR'2)2L(X)], (R, L as before; R'=Me or Et, X=halogen). The aim of this study was to determine the pharmacokinetics and excretion in mice and in isolated perfused rat livers of a representative compound from each class, respectively: Pt103 (R=p-HC6F4, L=pyridine) and Pt109 (R, L as for Pt103, R'=Et, X=I). METHODS: Mice were given intraperitoneal injections of active doses of Pt103, Pt109, or cisplatin in a variety of vehicles. Blood was sampled at several times to 48 h. Some mice were placed in metabolic cages where urine an..
