Caption: Cisplatin crystals. Cisplatin is a platinum compound used as a chemotherapy drug. It is used to treat some forms of cancer, including sarcomas, lymphomas and ovarian cancer. It acts by binding to DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and causing cross-linking between DNA strands, which prevents the cells from dividing. The cells try to repair this damage, but are unable to do so and so initiate apoptosis (programmed cell death).
