Cisplatin, cisplatinum, or cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (CDDP) (trade name Cisplatin, brand name Platin marketed by Cadila Healthcare according to FDA Orange Book) is a chemotherapy drug. It was the first member of a class of platinum-containing anti-cancer drugs, which now also includes carboplatin and oxaliplatin. These platinum complexes react in vivo, binding to and causing crosslinking of DNA, which ultimately triggers apoptosis (programmed cell death).
