ldn't have been picked up in conventional tests.

"The high throughput screening in the method we have used has produced a high return and we are hoping that more tests will bring new treatments a step closer."

Ian Cree, Professor of Histopathology, Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences at Portsmouth's Institute of Biomedical and Biomolecular Science and Director of the Cancer Laboratory at Queen Alexandra Hospital, said: "This is a first no one has managed to use cells obtained directly from cancers to screen an entire library of plant extracts and we are very excited by the results obtained.

"The key now will be to obtain further funding to produce drugs from those samples showing that they can kill cancer cells.

"It should be remembered that drug development is a very lengthy process and that these results, though exciting, are a long way from being used in patients."
