Welcome to MedChemComm Issue 9.
Ahmed Kamal and colleagues from the Indian Institute of Chemical Technology in Hyderabad (India) have devised a series of novel 2-Anilinonicotinyl linked 1,3,4-oxadiazole derivatives through simple synthetic schemes that exhibit potent anticancer efficacy via the inhibition of tubulin polymerisation, thus blocking mitotic division.
