Cancer is known to be the second most common cause of death, surpassed only by cardiovascular disease. So there has been intense research on various plant resources to develop novel anticancer agents. From the past several years, medicinal plants have been proved to be an important natural source for cancer therapy with fewer side effects. There are many natural cytotoxic drugs available, which needs further improvement and development of new drugs. The basic aim of this review is to explore the potential of newly discovered anticancer compounds from medicinal plants, as a lead for anticancer drug development. It will be helpful to explore the medicinal value of plants and for new drug discovery from them for the researchers and scientists around the globe.
