    Quinine is a drug for malaria which is made from the bark of cinchona tree. For cancer, Camptothea Acuminata plant is a member of Tupelo family which is only present in China and Tibet. Its anti-cancer ingredient is Quinoline alkaloid, which in turn has been modified to create a host of other anti-cancer drugs.
