Cancer is a life-threatening disease which severely affects the people around the globe. There is a growing demand to secure a permanent cure to treat this nasty disease. The currently available techniques like chemotherapy are not feasible for their devastating post-treatment consequences and also not affordable to every person. Therefore, researchers always seek a new remedy for the permanent cure of this deadly disease. Different plant derived metabolites have become the center of interest due to their less side effects and multipurpose application in preventing cancer. With the success of these metabolites, new technologies are about to be developed which hopefully will lead the researchers to find a definitive cure. Bangladesh is an agricultural country and tremendous variety of medicinal plant is available here with significant anticancer property. This study has been designed to investigate different medicinal plants of Bangladesh with anticancer activity and their effective compounds to treat cancer.
