Abstract

A wide range of studies carried out by cell biologists and biochemists lead to the conclusion that platinum anti-tumour compounds exert their potency by stopping the replication of DNA, thereby preventing cell division. This is most likely achieved by the formation of a complex between the bases of the DNA and the platinum compounds. The exact nature of this binding is not yet understood.
