Tumor recurrence, acquired resistance and metastasis have severely limited the effect of clinical treatments for epithelial ovarian cancer. Recent researches reveal that cancer stem cells play important roles in the process of cisplatin-induced resistance and cancer cell metastasis. A platinum(II) complex (HY1-Pt) owning casein kinase 2 specificity reported in our recent research was herein applied to treat cisplatin-sensitive and cisplatin-resistant epithelial ovarian cancers, respectively, anticipating to achieve high anti-tumor efficacy. HY1-Pt showed highly efficient anti-tumor effect with low toxicity for either cisplatin-sensitive or cisplatin-resistant epithelial ovarian cancer both in vitro and in vivo. Biological studies indicated that HY1-Pt as a casein kinase 2 inhibitor could effectively overcomes cisplatin resistance through the signaling pathway of Wnt/β-catenin by inhibiting expression of the signature genes of cancer stemness cells in A2780/CDDP cells. Moreover, HY1-Pt could suppress tumor migration and invasion in vitro and in vivo, further proving that HY1-Pt can be a potent novel platinum(II) agent for cisplatin-resistant epithelial ovarian cancer treatment.
