An investigation of the Phillippine Ampelocissus sp. roots for cancer cell growth inhibitory components led to the isolation of a new acetogenin characterized as 22-epicalamistrin (1) employing primarily 2D NMR and high-resolution mass spectral analysis. Two other antineoplastic constituents proved to be the known acetogenin uvaribonin (2) and chalcone 3. Constituents 1-3 were all found to show significant cancer cell growth inhibitory activity against a panel of human cancer cell lines.
