Nature has been instrumental as a source of therapeutics. The major anti-infective, anticancer, analgesics and immunosuppressive compounds are of natural origin. Sea anemones are well known for being rich sources of toxins. The goal of this study was to determine the susceptibility of human non-small-cell lung cancer cell line (A549) to killing by four different sea anemone venoms.
