Anti-Tumour Effects of Platinum Complexes in Experimental Animals

  • T. A. Connors
Part of the Recent Results in Cancer Research book series (RECENTCANCER, volume 48)


The discovery of new types of anti-cancer agent is not always the result of large scale screening or of working hypotheses which suggest that a particular chemical may have anti-tumour properties. Quite frequently new agents are found because of unexpected observations which may be made in fields completely unrelated to cancer chemotherapy.
