Heavy metal info

I've been searching the net trying to find out how long traced of cisplatin can be expected to hang around in my system. The information varies greatly on the forums from a matter of hours to years. In the course of these investigations I've stumbled on a particularly nice description of the drug here. I've been quite curious as to how something that attacks dividing cells has failed to kill me. Mr Jon Steed has explained it in terms that even I can understand. It's all devilishly clever - both cisplatin and Mr Steed!

What I haven't yet found though is a definitive answer to my question.

  1. Sue- Roger Kitchen put me onto a fascinating book by Siddhartha Mukherjee called 'The Emperor of all Maladies'. It recounts the history of cancer and the fight against it, and will give you a lot of insight into how chemo works.
