Novel hypoxia-targeting Pt(IV) prodrugs

Author affiliations


Novel Pt(IV) prodrugs targeting hypoxia inducible factor HIF-1α were prepared for evaluating their antitumor activity on hypoxic cancer cells for the first time. The resulting Pt(IV) prodrug exhibited effective inhibition on tumor growth in the HCT-116 xenograft mouse model with low toxicity in vivo.
