Abstract: The main group elements antimony and bismuth are used clinically, primarily for the treatment of Leishmaniasis (antimony) and ulcers (bismuth). Despite their medicinal efficacy, the exploration of the anti-cancer potential of antimony and bismuth compounds is not as well developed as for other metal-containing species. The results of cytotoxicity and anti-tumour screening for antimony(III), antimony(V) and bismuth(III) compounds are summarised in this review. While this is a relatively undeveloped field of research endeavour, promising anti-tumour activity has been reported, in particular for bismuth compounds. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.
