Compounds containing 1,3,4-oxadiazole ring in their structure are characterised by multidirectional biological activity. Their anti-proliferative effects associated with various mechanisms, such as inhibition of growth factors, enzymes, kinases and others, deserve attention. The activity of these compounds was tested on cell lines of various cancers. In most publications, the most active derivatives of 1,3,4-oxadiazole exceeded the effect of reference drugs, so they may become the main new anti-cancer drugs in the future. View Full-Text
