Abstract: Plants have a long history of use in the treatment of cancer and over 60% of currently used anti-cancer agents are derived in one way or another from natural sources. South Africa has a rich plant biodiversity with only a limited number reported for the treatment of cancer. As a results, a collaborative research programme was initiated between the CSIR and the National Cancer Institue (NCI) in the USA, aimed at the screening of plant extract and identification of potentially new anti-cancer drug leads. Plant extracts that exhibited anti-cancer activity against these three human cell lines were then screened by the NCI.
