Two homologous trinuclear polyamine chelates with either Pt(II) (Ia) or Pd(II) (Ib) were screened for their anticancer properties. Their growth-inhibition activity towards a human tongue epithelioma (HSC-3) was assessed in vitro, and the effect of the cation alteration was determined (IC50 =32 μM for Ib vs 66 μM for Ia).

Keywords: Pt(II), Pd(II), spermidine, anticancer drugs, squamous tongue epithelioma
