Abstract

Cancer is a disease that affects the human population worldwide. New medicines to treat and prevent this life-threatening condition are always in demand. Natural-derived substances are attracting scientific and academic attention since they are thought to have fewer hazardous side effects than conventional therapies like chemotherapy. Natural secondary metabolites produced by plants are being studied for their anticancer properties, which might lead to the creation of novel therapeutic medications. As a result of the success of these substances, which have been turned into standard cancer treatments, new technologies are developing to further advance the field. Nanoparticles for nanomedicines, for example, are a novel technology that aims to improve the anticancer properties of plant-derived pharmaceuticals by regulating the compound's release and studying new administration ways. The need for naturally produced chemicals from medicinal plants, as well as their features that make them possible anticancer therapeutic targets, are discussed in this study.
