This is not the first time the yew has been used in medicine. In 1021, a herbal drug “Zarnab” was used as a cardiac medicine, and it was not known until the 1960s when it was discovered to be a calcium channel blocker drug. In the Central Himalayas, the plant is used as a treatment for breast and ovarian cancer.
