Pyrazole and pyrazolyl palladium(II) and platinum(II) complexes: synthesis and in vitro evaluation as anticancer agents.

by Keter, Frankline Kiplangat

Abstract (Summary)
The use of metallo-pharmaceuticals, such as the platinum drugs, for cancer treatment illustrates the utility of metal complexes as therapeutic agents. Platinum group metal complexes therefore offer potential as anti-tumour agents to fight cancer. This study was aimed at synthesizing and evaluating the effects of palladium(II) and platinum(II) complexes as anticancer agents.
