About ProLindac(TM):
ProLindac is a novel DACH platinum prodrug which has been shown to be active in a wide variety of solid tumors in both preclinical models and in human trials. Access believes that ProLindac's unique molecular design potentially could eliminate some of the toxic side effects seen in the currently marketed DACH platinum, Eloxatin, which has sales in excess of $2 billion.

Platinum’s new job – preventing cancer.

A report from the World Health Organization classified diesel exhaust as carcinogenic, linking diesel exhaust fumes to lung cancer and increased risk of bladder cancer. A previous WHO report said diesel exhaust was probably carcinogenic to humans.

i used to work for a/the company that made cisplatin and oxaliplatin. we used ALOT of PT. we made sure to collect waste streams and send off to a refiner what could be collected.
as cool as the drugs are- they are super potent (in raw, powder form) and very damaging. good cancer drugs- not fun to work with...

Default prostate pellets

A guy i work with has over 50 radioactive platinum pellets inserted in his cancerous prostate gland.

i told him when he dies to make sure the funeral director removes his prostate so his heirs can sell it for scrap....
