      12. Abstract :
        Side effects and acquired resistance by cancer cells limit the use of platinum anticancer drugs. Modification of oxaliplatin (OXA) into a lipophilic Pt(IV) complex [Pt(DACH)(OAc)(OPal)(ox)] (1), containing both lipophilic and hydrophilic axial ligands, was applied to improve performance and facilitate incorporation into polymeric nanoparticles. Complex 1 exhibited unique potency against a panel of cancer cells, including cisplatin-resistant tumor cells. [Pt(DACH)(OAc)(OPal)(ox)] incorporated nanoparticles (2) presented a mean diameter of 146 nm with encapsulation yields above 95% as determined by HPLC. Complexes 1 and 2 showed enhanced in vitro cellular Pt accumulation, DNA platination, and antiproliferative effect compared to OXA. Results of an orthotopic intraperitoneal model of metastatic ovarian cancer (SKOV-3) and a xenograft subcutaneous model of colon (HCT-116) tumor in SCID-bg mice showed that the activity of 1 and 2 significantly decreased tumor growth rates compared to control and OXA treatment groups. Consequently, these findings warrant further development toward clinical translation.
