Bisphosphines related to bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane (dppe) and their gold complexes are described that are active in a spectrum of transplantable tumor models. When administered ip on days 1-5 at its maximally tolerated dose (MTD) of 40 mumol/kg, dppe reproducibly gives 100% increase in life span (ILS) in mice bearing ip P388 leukemia. Coordination of chlorogold(I) to each phosphine in dppe gave a complex that had similar activity but at a much lower dose level than dppe; the MTD for the gold… CONTINUE READING
