Dr. Regina Mary R, Santosh Kumar M

A literature search was conducted on Medline for research articles relating guava (Psidium guajava Linn.) to cancer, in order to determine any potential anticancer activity. Today, there is increasing interest in discovering new bioactive compounds derived from ethno medicine. Preparations of guava (P. guajava L.) leaves have traditionally been used to manage several diseases. The pharmacological research in vitro as well as in vivo has been widely used to demonstrate the potential of the extracts from the leaves for the co-treatment of different ailments with high prevalence worldwide, upholding the traditional medicine in cases such as diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and parasitic infections. Moreover, the biological activity has been attributed to the bioactive composition of the leaves, to some specific phytochemical subclasses, or even to individual compounds.
