Cisplatin forms a coordination compound with DNA, which stops the rapid and controllable cell division of cancer cells. However, it does not single out cancer cells specifically, and can stop the division of normal cells as well
The pros of cisplatin are that they kill cancer cells very effectively. A minor con is that cisplatin also works on healthy cells, but Dr. Lavelle mentioned that the degree at which they kill healthy cells is relatively less than the amount of cancer cells killed.
