INTRODUCTION

The research describes the Jamaican ball moss as a reservoir of unique bioactive compounds possessing potent anti-cancer activity against some major types of cancer through the induction of apoptosis. This research puts us a step closer toward creating a pharmaceutical product from an endemic plant and can help to promote the establishment of pharmaceutical companies centred on the creation of products from Jamaican plants. This will also serve as a stimulus for other researchers to move in a similar direction.
