Abstract

Aqueous solutions of the cisplatin analog aqua(1,1-bis(aminomethyl)cyclohexane)sulfatoplatinum(II) (TNO-6, spiroplatin) principally contain hydrolyzed and oligomerized molecules. Sodium sulfate reduces the hydrolysis of the sulfato ligand. We investigated the influence of the equilibrium state on nephrotoxicity of spiroplatin in rats receiving 3 doses of 3 mg/kg with an interval of 8 days. Rats (n = 6) treated with spiroplatin solubilized in isoosmotic sodium sulfate (impaired hydrolysis) showed less toxicity as measured by proteinuria, platinum excretion and body weight, than the group treated with spiroplatin solubilized in 5% glucose. This result indicates that the presence of hydrolysis products plays a role in the toxicity of spiroplatin.
