Main Article Content
Cancer is known as one of the main cause of deathworldwide. It is difficult to discover nove lagents that selectively kill tumor cels or inhibit their proliferation without general toxicity. Searching for more active, more selective and less toxic compounds are the main targets of cancer researchs. Nasturtium officinale L. has been used for a long time as a food and medicinal plant widely distrubuted areas of world for ages.Main therapeutic effect of plant is because of rich essential nutrients as well as non-essential health-promoting phytochemicals phenolics and glucosinolates. The plant has antiviral, antiinflammatory,diuretic, expectorant, anti-diabetic, hepatoprotective, antihyperlipidemic and anticancer properties. The aim of this study is to review the Nasturtium officinale L. compounds and search for their effects against various cancer cell lines.
