Journal Title: International Journal of Pharmacognosy - Year 2018, Vol 5, Issue 4

Abstract

Nature has been providing many essential sources which are being utilized in every form of our lives. There are many novel techniques which are being developed from natural resources most importantly plants. By this review we tried to prove the efficiency of Carnivorous plants like Dionaea muscipula, Drosera indica in preventing varied types of cancers. We also tried to include various metabolites which are extracted through in vitro culture techniques. Some of the plants related to this type such as Dionaea muscipula, Drosera indica, have the capacity to cure cancer which is one of the most dangerous disease and due to which millions of people are dying every year. Some of the plants of this variety such as Dionea and Drosera species have essential metabolites which are extracted through in vitro culture techniques. In this review we also tried to compare various metabolites which are extracted from different carnivorous plants. We also tried to discuss some of the recent research developments made in the area of anticancer drugs.
