To determine systemic and local platinum concentrations released from subcutaneously implanted cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (cisplatin)-impregnated polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) and to evaluate systemic or local adverse reactions.


6 healthy dogs.


Cisplatin (20 mg) was inserted into PMMA that was fashioned into cylinders and placed into subcutaneous tissue chambers overlying the thorax (treated site). An empty tissue chamber was placed over the opposite side (control site). Plasma samples were obtained for platinum determination before implantation, at 3, 6, and 12 hours after implantation on day 0, and once daily on days 1, 2, 3, 7, 14, 21, and 29. At similar times on similar days, tissue chamber fluid samples also were obtained for platinum determination. Complete blood count, serum urea nitrogen and creatinine concentration determinations, and urinalyses were performed on days 1, 2, 3, 7, 14, 21, and 29. Complete necropsy was performed at conclusion of the study.


Tissue chamber platinum concentrations at the treated site were significantly greater than plasma and control site tissue chamber concentrations on days 2, 3, 7, 10. Mean plasma platinum concentration at 3 (0.735 µg/ml), 6 (0.691 µg/ml), 12 (0.534 µg/ml), 24 (0.131 µg/ml), 48 (0.2 µg/ml), 72 (0.1 µg/ml), and 158 (0.014 µg/ml) hours was significantly greater than pretreatment values (0.0 µg/ml). Plasma platinum concentration 10 days after treatment (0.011 µg/ml) did not significantly differ from pretreatment values. Local or systemic adverse reactions were not apparent.


The route of cisplatin administration was safe. Greater concentration of platinum was released locally relative to plasma concentration for an extended period. (Am J Vet Res 1999;60:280–283)
