Project involves:
It is planned to prepare and characterize new Ruthenium and Vanadium complexes with anti-tumor and anti¬
parasitic activity, as well as anti-diabetic activity (V-compounds). The influence of the binding of therapeutic
drugs to serum proteins on their transport by blood plasma and uptake by cells is well recognized. The stability
and reactivity of the compounds prepared towards blood plasma constituents namely transferrin and albumin
will be studied to evaluate their bioavailability, as well as their capacity to interact with DNA. The toxicity, anti¬
tumor and anti-parasitic activity will be evaluated in-vitro with adequate cell lines.
