The rapid development of inorganic medical chemistry opens enormous potential for various applications of a range of inorganic substances in the medicine. Thus inorganic chemistry offers real possibilities to pharmaceutical industries, which used to be dominated by organic chemistry alone. The field has particularly been stimulated by the success-story of cisplatin, which is the World's best selling anticancer drug. Nowadays orally administered Pt(IV) complexes with reduced toxicity, and activity against resistant tumors are on various phases of clinical trial.
