Abstract:This article consists of an analysis of the available scientific research on botanically derived compounds that have potential efficacy in the treatment of lung cancer. The mechanisms of activity reviewed include alkylating agents, topoisomerase poisons, DNA synthesis inhibitors, protein synthesis inhibitors, immunoceuticals, and lipoxygenase inhibitors. Selection criteria include: (1) products whose activity have at least minimal scientific confirmation - preclinical (in vitro, in vivo) or clinical; (2) products with a well-defined chemical composition; or (3) products with a well-known or scientifically plausible mechanism of activity.
