Carboplatin is a chemotherapy agent used in treating certain sorts of cancer. The parent compound is cisplatin, Carboplatin is a kind of platinum anti-cancer compound. Carboplatin has achieved a significant reputation since its introduction back in the 1980s because it causes fewer side effects than cisplatin.
How does Carboplatin work?
Carcinoid tumors are characterized by cell division that is no longer as organized as in normal tissues. Normal cell stops dividing when they are in contact with cells similar to this, a process is known as contact inhibition. Cancer cells lose this ability. The process of cell division, whether normal or cancerous cells, takes place through the cell cycle. The cell cycle moves from the resting phase, through the phases of active growth, and then to mitosis (mitosis). The ability of chemotherapy to kill cancer cells depends on its ability to stop the cells from dividing. Drugs usually work by damaging RNA or DNA which tells the cell how to copy itself in case of division. Cells die if they’re unable to divide. If the cells divide faster, it is likely the chemotherapy will kill the cells, causing the tumor to shrink. They also induce cell suicide (self-death or programmed cell death). Chemotherapy drugs that affect cells only when they divide are called a specific cell cycle. The scheduling of chemotherapy is determined based on the type of cells, the rate of division, and the time that a particular drug is likely to be effective. This is why chemotherapy is usually given in cycles. Chemotherapy is very powerful at killing rapidly dividing cells. Unfortunately, chemotherapy does not know the difference between cancerous cells and healthy cells. The normal cells will grow again and be healthy but in the meantime, side effects occur. The normal cells most affected by chemotherapy are blood cells, cells of the mouth, stomach, intestines, and hair follicles. Leading to low blood counts, mouth sores, nausea, diarrhea, and/or hair loss. Different medicines may affect different parts of the body. Chemotherapy (anti-tumor drugs) falls into five categories based on how they work to kill cancer. Although these medicines are divided into groups, there is some overlap between some of the specific medicines.
Types of chemotherapy:
Alkylsulfonates: Busulfan. Ethylenimines: Hexamethylmelamine and Thiotepa. Mustard gas derivatives: Cyclophosphamide, Mechlorethamine, Melphalan, Chlorambucil, and Ifosfamide. Metal salts: Cisplatin, Carboplatin, and Oxaliplatin. Hydrazines and Triazines: Dacarbazine, Temozolomide, and Procarbazine. Nitrosoureas: Streptozocin, Lomustine, and Carmustine. Nitrosoureas are unique because, unlike most chemotherapy, they can cross the blood-brain barrier.
Carboplatin Side Effects:
Here are some examples of the side effects that may occur while carboplatin treatment:
Diarrhea Nausea and vomiting Loss of appetite and Mouth ulcers Kidney and liver function may also be affected Hearing loss may be noticed, especially in children taking the treatment Hair loss
How much money does Carboplatin cost?
The retail prices per 5ml of 10mg/ml carboplatin injectable solution fall into an approximate range of 8.00 EUR to 12.00 EUR, whereas 60 ml vial of 10mg/ml carboplatin can cost around 60-70 EUR.
