A wide variety of platinum(II) complexes have been synthesised and tested for anti-tumour activity resulting in the identification of additional potentially active anti-tumour drugs. Several structural features have been shown to be necessary for a complex to show activity. This article follows up the article by Professor Barnett Rosenberg in the April 1971 issue.
