I'm pretty sure we only need to know about cisplatin since Dr. Lavelle discussed it in detail. It's good to know how it works rather than just knowing what it's used for. The reason why cisplatin is a useful chemotherapy drug is that its two Cl ligands (which are on the same side) get displaced by exposed N's on guanine. The strong bond keeps the cells from dividing.
