Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled development and the spread of abnormal cells. An estimated 14 million new cases of cancer are reported each year worldwide. In 2017, about 600,920 American people die from cancer, with nearly 1,650 deaths each day. Some typical natural compounds, such as alkaloid indole, show significant anti-cancer activity. Periwinkle alkaloid, a family of indole dimer compounds isolated from the periwinkle of Catharanthus roseus, the Apocynaceae family, represents one of the most important anti-cancer layers.
