An updated assessment on anticancer activity of screened medicinal plants in Jordan: Mini review

Author(s): Lafi Zainab, Tarik Hiba and Azzam Hanan
Abstract: Since the ancient ages plant species have been used as key part in traditional medicine and curing practices. Recently a huge body of literature showed that medicinal plant species used by the Jordanian people for the treatment of cancer were screened for their potential as cytotoxic therapy at least in vitro. This review summarizes an updated evidence on different features of traditionally used chemotherapeutic plants in addition to the screened ones for their antiproliferative activity and to shed light on them for further investigation. Studies of screening for selective cytotoxicity and antiproliferative activity of plants are briefly discussed.
