Les anticancéreux dans la biodiversité végétale mondiale et en Nouvelle-Calédonie

Abstract : As old as human consciousness, correspondence between plants and their healing properties is known. An analysis of our pharmacopoeia shows that even now humans seek these drugs in nature. Does nature still have secrets to reveal? This study has retraced the evolution of the use of plants in oncology through the writings of the great doctors of history. A comparison between ancestral knowledges and modern medicine is carried out and has shown a non-use of traditional medicine in current research and medicine in oncology. The second part of this study made it possible to draw up an inventory of New Caledonian plant knowledges in oncology. It is clear that the New Caledonian plant biodiversity, despite its originality, is little explored and could prove to be the source of new drugs. And finally the last part of this study is a contribution to the knowledge of the plants of New Caledonia by carrying out a screening of the cytotoxic activities of some species including species belonging to the genera Soulamea and Diospyros which showed interesting cytotoxic activities. This valuation work is essential in an objective of protecting an endangered biodiversity like it’s the case in New Caledonia to allow the establishment of backup programs.
