Abstract
The mortality resulting from cancer is still high and the cure for cancer remains elusive. Treatment of cancer that focused initially on systemic, high-dose chemotherapy of being non-specific, is now shifted to discover newer potential anticancers that balances minimal adverse effects and complications with maximal antitumor activity. Hence, natural products derived drugs are believed to reduce these adverse effects and shown significant growth in the pharmaceutical industry. The importance of natural products as novel compounds relates to the fact that plants synthesised and developed chemical based defence system, which involved production of secondary metabolites. It is these secondary metabolites, considered relatively safe and cheaply available that leads to the thriving of chemically diverse compounds, now being the target of current anticancer drug discovery with potential use in treatment of diseases. Natural compounds that generally regulate apoptosis and overcome apoptosis deficiency of cancer cells are of high medical significance. In regards to this, our laboratory in Malaysia has discovered several interesting natural compounds of local herbal plant derived, which induces apoptosis to cancer cells specifically, with little effects on normal cells and surroundings organs. Apart from in vitro analysis, the animal model studies provided evidence of potential regression to the cancers progression when using these compounds for treatment. Increasing evidences suggesting neoplastic progression involve normal apoptotic pathways modification has attracted much attention in anti-cancers discovery nowadays. Hence, this presentation reveals few of these natural compounds exhibiting newly discovered anti-cancers activity via the induction of apoptosis in these cancers specifically.
