Cover ChemAEurJournal 2New 1,7-closo-carboranylanilinoquinazoline hybrids have been identified as EGFR inhibitors, one of them with higher affinity than the parent compound erlotinib. The comparative docking analysis with compounds bearing bioisoster-substructures, demonstrated the relevance of the 3D aromatic-boron-rich moiety for interacting into the EGFR ATP binding region. The capability to accumulate in glioma cells, the ability to cross the blood–brain barrier and the stability on simulated biological conditions, render these molecules as lead compounds for further structural modifications to obtain dual action drugs to treat glioblastoma.

    The anionic cobaltabis (dicarbollide) [3,3′-Co(1,2-C2B9H11)2]−, [o-COSAN]−, is the most studied icosahedral metallacarborane. The sodium salts of [o-COSAN]− could be an ideal candidate for the anti-cancer treatment Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) as it possesses the ability to readily cross biological membranes thereby producing cell cycle arrest in cancer cells.   BNCT is a cancer therapy based on the potential of 10B atoms to produce α particles that cross tissues in which the 10B is accumulated without damaging the surrounding healthy tissues, after being irradiated with low energy thermal neutrons.
