The new molecules are linkedwith an alkyl chain at position 16a of the steroid nucleus and bear a 16b-hydroxymethyl side chain. They are made from estrone infive chemical steps with an overall yield exceeding 28%. The biological activity of these compounds was evaluated in vitro onestrogen dependent and independent (ER+ and ERÀ) human breast cancers. The derivatives incorporating a 2-(20-amino-ethyl)pyridine ligand displayed good activity against the cell lines particularly when the connecting arm is 10 carbon atoms long.

Unfortunately, the devel-opment of cellular resistance to cisplatin in mammaliancells is common and is believed to occur via three mainmechanisms: (a) increased efficiency of repair of plati-num–DNA lesions, (b) increased detoxification by thiolcontaining scavenger molecules such as glutathione(GSH) and metallothionein (MT), and (c) decreasedcellular uptake of the drug.2 Its toxic effects, particu- *Corresponding author.

Thus, the design of novel platinum(II)complexes with a broader spectrum of activity, lesstoxicity and improved selectivity towards cancerouscells is still of great importance.
This paper describes the straightforward synthesis of anew family of 17b-estradiol-linked Pt(II) complexes (seegeneral structure 1). The new molecules bear a 16b-hydroxymethyl side chain and a platinum(II) complexlocked in position 16a of the steroid nucleus. It alsoreports the in vitro cytotoxic activity of these com-pounds on estrogen dependent and independent (ER+and ERÀ) human breast cancer cell lines.

This could account forthe discrepancies in cytotoxic activities observed for derivatives 1, m=1 and 1, m=2. This kind of estrogen- linked Pt(II) complexes could present several advan- tages over the known cisplatin analogues. Theoretically,the estrogenic portion of the molecule may direct thecytotoxic Pt(II) moiety towards the target cells in vivo,increasing specificity and reducing systemic toxicity.
Further research will be necessary to evaluate the com-plete biological potential of this novel class of 17b-estradiol-linked Pt(II) complexes.
