The US National Cancer Institutes plant screening program
2020-10-15 In 1937, the US NCI was founded in order to initiate and coordinate research related to cancer. In 1955, the NCI created the Cancer Chemotherapy National Service Center (CCNSC) with the aim of developing a program of screening chemical substances for anti-cancer activity.

2020-10-15 The success of NCI's program cannot, therefore, be judged merely on the number of marketable natural plant drugs produced. Table 5.1 summarizes the screening of plants at NCI before the end of 1980 (as well as that of other products). In the first phase of its natural products program NCI screened roughly 114000 plant extracts.

Preparation of plant extracts for antitumor screening. Statz D, Coon FB. Random collections of plants have been screened by the National Cancer Institute's screening program for almost two decades. The WARF Institute, Inc. (Madison, Wis) has been preparing most of the crude plant extracts for antitumor screening for the past 14 years.

However, new groundbreaking technologies make it possible to process natural extracts into partially purified samples that are amenable to modern screening technologies. CCR is leading this effort in its NCI Program for Natural Products Discovery (NPNPD). At the center of the NPNPD is the NCI Natural Products Repository. This growing collection contains more than 230,000 extracts of plants,

The Division of Cancer Treatment, the main organizational component of the cancer program, became responsible for coordinating cancer treatment research within NCI. The major emphasis in cancer treatment research is searching for antitumor drugs and developing and improving combined methods of therapy using drugs singly or in combination with other forms of therapy, including surgery and

Drug Discovery and Development at the National Cancer
Natural products and plant-derived products continue to be excellent sources of new drug candidates. A program such as the one that has evolved at the National Cancer Institute can achieve three of the most important goals. It can be successful at helping to protect the rights and benefits of the source country which provides the new bioresource.

Abstract. The U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) currently has in place a large screening program which supports researchers worldwide in the search for new effective drugs for cancer and AIDS. 1–3 While a majority of screening in this program is focused upon pure compounds submitted by non-NCI investigators for NCI testing, a portion of the screening capacity is allocated to the initial
