Objective To sum up the studies on the chemical constituents and anti-tumor activity of the plants from Pinus in recent years. Methods Collected and analyzed the literatures of the plants from Pinus on the study of chemical constituents and anti-tumor effect. Results Plants of Pinus contain various chemical components,such as terpenoids,flavonoids,lignans,polysaccharides,phenols,amino acids,and its extracts have broad bioactivities,especially anti-tumor. Conclusion Plants of Pinus contain a variety of chemical components and the extracts have significant anti-tumor activity.
