  • ABSTRACT Current research in  drug discovery from medicinal plants involves the identification  of   safe and inexpensive lead molecule towards disease tagets. Cancer is a second major national burden leading to cause death. Reducing the nation's cancer burden is a great challenge to win the “War of cancer”. During the last decades, numerous novel compounds have been found from marine organisms with interesting pharmaceutical activities. Hence, a novel brown algae, Sargassum ilicifolium (Turner… CONTINUE READING
