Tetrachlorido(O,O'-dibutyl-ethylenediamine-N,N'-di-3-propionate)-platinum(IV) complex, [PtCl4(n-Bu(2)eddp)], was previously found to be effective against fibrosarcoma and glioma cell lines. Here we presented that [PtCl4(n-Bu(2)eddp)] strongly reduced the growth of B16 melanoma cells in vitro. Inhibition of cell viability was accompanied with induction of both necrotic and apoptotic cell death. In addition, [PtCl4(n-Bu(2)eddp)] concealed the expansion of tumors induced in syngeneic C57BI/6 mice without visible signs of nephrotoxicity.
