In the light of results obtained from both hospital samples which were treated by the fluidized bed bioreactor, where Ifosfamide and Tamoxifen were partially eliminated from hospital wastewater, three anticancer drugs were selected for further comprehensive study of their degradation by T. versicolor: Ifosfamide, Tamoxifen and Cyclophosphamide. Despite Cyclophosphamide was not present in any of hospital wastewater samples analyzed in this work, it Simvastatin was selected for a more detailed study since it is still one of the most important anticancer drugs: digestive system has been detected in wastewaters (both hospitals effluents and influents of WWTPs) ( Buerge et al., 2006, G√≥mez-Canela et al., 2012, Ferrando-Climent et al., 2013 and Ferrando-Climent et al., 2014) and their elimination during conventional activated sludge treatments has been described as negligible ( Zhang et al., 2013 and Ferrando-Climent et al., 2014). This is the first time that the removal of this drug is studied with T. versicolor.
