Objective: Cervical cancer is one of the most tumors seen in womans and second leading cause of cancer death in women. Cisplatin (CDDP), a platin based compound, is the most important chemotherapeutic agent and effectively used for the treatment of sarcomas and solid tumors. It binds to the DNA with crosslinks and leads inhibition of replication, causing DNA damage. As a result of this action, apoptotic pathways are induced and cell death occurs. In our study, we aimed to investigate the effect of CDDP on relative mRNA expression of mTOR, AKT, Cyclin D1 (CCND1) ve STAT3 on cervical cancer cell line.
