Abstract

This volume provides a tabular summary of all the better-known naturally occurring anti-cancer and cytotoxic substances appearing in the literature. The tabular surveys of plant and animal antineoplastic constituents were conceived as a means of providing ready access to this field for both chemists and biologists. The biosynthetic anticancer and cytotoxic agents have been summarized in broad groups based on chemical classification and biological origins. In each group the substances have been arranged according to increasing carbon atom content. Wherever known, a summary of the antineoplastic and/or cytotoxic activity, principal physical measurements, and the botanical or zoological source has been included.
