Biological Characterization of Selected Palladium (II) Poly(amides), Poly(thioamides) and Poly(hydrazides)
A number of palladium-containing polymers were tested biologically for their ability to inhibit HF5 (normal), HeLa (human cervical carcinoma), Hep-2 (human laryngeal carcinoma) and Girardi human heart (transformed) cells. There appears to be a direct relationship between the inhibition exhibited by the monomeric diamine and the corresponding polymer. In most cases, Inhibition was superior to that observed for cis-DDP.
