Cisplatin is used in chemotherapy to treat several cancers, including testicular cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, and breast cancer. Cisplatin damages DNA strands and inhibits the synthesis of DNA in order to halt growth of cancer cells.

Cisplatin is a chemotherapy drug used to treat cancer. Be sure not to confuse it with transplatin, which has the Cl atoms diagonally across from each other. Cisplatin has the Cl atoms on the same side, which is useful in stopping cell growth and metastasizing cancer.
