Abstract

Extracts of different Eremophila, Myoporum (Myoporaceae) and Prostanthera (Lamiaceae) pIant species, important in the traditional medicine of Australian Aboriginal people, were investigated for activity against a number of cancer cell lines. Extracts from E duttonii and E. sturtii species showed the strongest differential activity, with weak differential activity observed in other Myoporaceae extracts.
