Abstract

New benzyliminoether derivatives [PtCl(2){N(H)=C(OMe)CH(2)Ph}(2)] of cis (1a, 1b) and trans (2a, 2b) geometry were prepared and characterized by means of elemental analysis, multinuclear NMR and FT-IR techniques, and X-ray crystallography; this latter was carried out for 1b. The cytotoxic properties of these new platinum(11) complexes were evaluated in terms of cell growth inhibition against a panel of different types of human cancer cell lines. CiS-[PtCl(2){E-N(H)=C(OMe)CH(2)Ph}(2)] (1a) was significantly more potent than cisplatin against all tumor cell lines tested, showing IC(50) values from about 2- to 17-fold lower than the reference compound. Chemosensitivity tests performed on cisplatin-sensitive and -resistant cell lines have demonstrated that complex la is able to overcome cisplatin resistance. Analyzing the mechanism by which complex la led to cell death, we have found that it induced apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner, accompanied by the activation of caspase-3. The in vivo studies carried out using two transplantable tumor models (L1210 leukemia and Lewis lung carcinoma) showed that derivative la induced a remarkable antitumor activity in both tumor models, as measured by prolonged survival and reduced tumor mass compared to control groups.
