Aqua[meso-1, 2-bis(2, 6-difluoro-3-hydroxyphenyl)ethylenediamine]sulfatoplatinum(II) (meso-3-PtSO(4)) and its racemate (rac-3-PtSO(4)) are highly active on the hormone-sensitive MXT-M-3, 2 breast cancer of the mouse. In vitro, on the MXT(+) cell culture derived from this tumor, however, they are inactive (meso-3-PtSO(4)) or moderately active (rac-3-PtSO(4)) in concentrations corresponding to levels of these drugs in animal experiments. The in vivo effect is mainly caused by a reduction of the endogenous estrogen level in the host animals due to an interference with the ovarian steroid biosynthesis as demonstrated for meso-3-PtSO(4). Therefore, a reversal of the breast cancer inhibiting effect of meso-3-PtSO(4) can be achieved by simultaneous estrone administration. Histological results on ovaries, uterus, and tumor of meso-3-PtSO(4)-treated mice also favor such a mode of action. However, especially for rac-3-PtSO(4) cytotoxic effects contributing to the anti-breast cancer activity cannot be excluded. Considerations on the mode of action of Pt-complexes which inhibit breast cancer by interference with estrogen receptor mediated processes of growth control and with DNA replication are presented.
