This study aims to investigate the effect of intrapleural polymeric films containing cisplatin on the local recurrence of malignant pleural mesothelioma in a rat tumour model.Conclusions: Hyaluronate-chitosan cisplatin was significantly effective in reducing tumour recurrence compared with cisplatin solution. Hyaluronate and hyaluronate-chitosan loaded with cisplatin assured significantly higher and more prolonged plasmatic drug concentrations than cisplatin solution without increasing toxicity.
