      <Abstract>Owing to the modern life style cancer is a major disease of the modern society. Though lot therapies are there to control cancer, drug based control is considered as a major control measure. The biochemicals isolated from the natural organisms are of immense value as these products have fewer side effects. The action of the biochemical is majorly by intercalation or the groove binding to DNA and regulating the uncontrolled proliferation of tumor by chromosomal breakage or cytolysis. The phyto-chemicals are promising candidates a have diverse type of secondary metabolites, some of which are proved to be efficient drugs in cancer therapy. Another source of cancer drugs are the marine biodiversity, ranging from bacteria to Mollusca. These organisms also develop secondary metabolites for self defense and predation, which is gaining wide attention presently. The current review seeks the advancements of cancer therapy in this context.</Abstract>
