Abstract: Plant-derived compounds have been an integral component in man’s quest to discover ideal anticancer agents. A number of new agents are currently in clinical development with promising selective activity against cancer cell lines and cancer-related molecular targets. This book chapter discusses 14 of such compounds isolated from African plants from 15 plant families. Also contained in this book chapter are compounds from African plants that hold prospect as potential anticancer agents as informed by their in vitroand in vivopreclinical studies. It is, therefore, worthwhile that researchers in the African con-tinent and the world over should keep on working on identifying biomolecules with potential in cancer management.
