Abstract

We have previously reported the enhancement of the antiproliferative and apoptotic activities of cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (DDP) when it is coadministered with a class I antiarrhythmic drug procainamide hydrochloride (PA). Here, we determined the antiproliferative activity of DDP, either in solution or loaded in liposomes, in the presence of PA, in the bulk solution, or directly embedded in liposomes together with DDP. Our results show that PA potentiates the activity of DDP-liposomes and that this effect is maintained at least in some of the investigated cell types when both drugs were mixed and loaded together into liposomes.
