Research Focus

Research suggests that platinum agents cause DNA cross-linking and oxidative damage. Genetic polymorphisms of DNA repair genes are associated with differential DNA repair activity and are under investigations to increase the understanding of interindividual differences in overall survival after therapy with platinum agents for cancer.
