Biochem/physiol Actions

Oxaliplatin a platinum analogue, causes DNA damage and cell death by binding to DNA and forming inter and intrastrand crosslinks preventing replication and transcription. Oxaliplatin is an anti-tumor agent with activity against colorectal cancer; cytotoxicity follows the formation of adducts with DNA. Oxaliplatin is an approved drug for treating colorectal cancer. It is an active ingredient in FOLFOX (Folinic acid:5-FU:oxaliplatin in the ratio 1:10:1 of micromolar concentrations respectively). Oxaliplatin causes both acute and chronic neurotoxicity in patients in a dose dependent manner and is reversible either by reducing or stopping the drug.
