Platinum(IV) prodrug complexes based on the cisplatin/oxaliplatin pharmacophore, containing anti-HER2/neu targeting peptides, were designed to deliver their cytotoxic platinum(II) payload selectively to highly HER2-expressing cells. Through induction of necrotic cell death, these platinum(IV)–peptide conjugates can circumvent apoptosis-resistance pathways in targeted HER2-positive cells.
