Welcome to Cancer Plants Database Profile
Cancer has been estimated to be the second leading cause of death worldwide. While great advancements have been made in the treatment and control of cancer progression, significant deficiencies and room for improvement remain. Hence there has been a wide search on various biological sources to develop a novel anti-cancer drug from plant sources. A myriad of many plant products exist that have shown very promising anti-cancer properties in vitro, but they need further evaluation.

While scientists are still attempting to explore the bioavailability of anti-cancerous compound in unexplored plant species this database provides them with useful information of the plants used and the bioactive compounds. It is therefore anticipated that plants can provide bioactive compounds for the development of new “leads” to fight cancer.
