Preventing the spread of cancer with copper molecules

Chemists at Bielefeld University have developed a molecule containing copper that binds specifically with DNA and prevents the spread of cancer. First results show that it kills the cancer cells more quickly than cisplatin — a widely used anti-cancer drug that is frequently administered in chemotherapy. When developing the anti-tumor agent, Dr. Thorsten Glaser and his team cooperated with biochemists and physicists. The design of the new agent is basic research. —> Read More Here
