Several studies have been done in the past for the prevention and cure of cancer. Algeria, a country known for its biodiversity, has a particularly rich and varied flora. For this purpose, it constitutes in our opinion, a considerable source of search for bioactives natural substances. This work aims at valorization of a medicinal herb, of Euphorbia resinifera, for its anti-cancer activity. It belongs to the family of Euphorbiacae, and is particulary found in northern Sahara region. The traditional pharmacopoeia reveals that this species is equipped with several therapeutic virtues like anti-cancer.
