Plant-derived leading compounds for chemotherapy of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.
Many compounds of plant origin that inhibit different stages in the replication cycle of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have been identified and only a very few of these plant-derived anti-HIV products have been used in a limited number of patients suffering from AIDS.

Since phytoestrogens are structurally very similar to the estrogen 17beta-estradiol, they may exhibit selective estrogen receptor modulating activities, and special attention will be given to the hormonal effects of various isoflavonoids, including genistein, daidzein, coumestrol and equol, several prenylated flavonoid, especially 8-prenylnaringenin, and the stilbene resveratrol.
