Abstract

Anthracyclines such as daunomycin (DA) and adriamycin (AD) are a group of antitumour drugs used in chemotherapy of leukaemia and other forms of cancer. They have been widely studied with respect to non-photochemical processes, e.g. electrochemical, pulse radiolysis, spectrofluorimetry, in attempts to improve understanding of cell reaction and cardiotoxic effects.
