Abstract Since the discovery of the cisplatin antitumor activity, great efforts have focused on the rational design of metal-based anticancer agents that can be potentially used in cancer chemotherapy. Over the last four decades, a large number of metal complexes have been extensively investigated and evaluated in vitro and in vivo, and some of them were at different stages of clinical studies. Amongst these complexes, platinum (Pt(II) and Pt(IV)), ruthenium (Ru(II) and Ru(III)), gold (Au(I) and Au(III)) and titanium (Ti(IV)) complexes are the most studied metals. We describe here some most recent progresses on Pt(IV) prodrugs which can be activated once enter tumor cells, polynuclear Pt(II) complexes which have unique DNA binding ability and mode, anti-metastatic Ru(II)/Ru(III) complexes, and Au(I)/Au(III) and Ti(IV) antitumor active complexes. The key focuses of these studies lie in finding novel metal complexes which could potentially overcome the hurdles of current clinical drugs including toxicity, resistance and other pharmacological deficiencies.
