Beta-solamarine: tumor inhibitor isolated from Solanum dulcamara.

An alcoholic extract of Solanum dulcamara L., a plant widely used in folk medicine for treating cancers and warts, shows tumor-inhibitory activity against Sarcoma 180 in mice. Systematic fractionation of the extract has led to isolation and characterization of beta-solamarine as an active principle.
