Malignant neoplasia or cancer is usually treated with chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery. Chemotherapeutic techniques have a range of side-effects viz. cytotoxicity on fast-dividing cells, immunosuppression, secondary neoplasm (metastasis), development of drug resistance, cardiotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, nephrotoxicity, ototoxicity etc. These adverse effects results in significant numbers of treatment-induced deaths rather than disease-induced fatalities. Literature shows that so many plant materials can reduce these side effects significantly which can be used in Adjuvant therapy. The objective of implementing an adjuvant regimen consisting of multiple agents is to increase the odds of achieving a long remission. Once a remission is achieved, preventing recurrence and secondary cancers becomes a lifetime commitment. Medicinal plants posses’ wide spectrum anticancer activity. This phenomenon is well established by researches.
