Devil's Apple (Solanum linnaeanum) is a poisonous nightshade species native to South Africa and is considered an invasive weed in Australia and New Zealand. The applications of devil's apple in combating cancer was tested and patented in the early 1980s by Bill Cham, who was then a medical researcher at the University of Queensland. Cham, who developed a cream made from the devil's apple flower, followed up anecdotal evidence from livestock owners that the growth of skin cancers and lesions had slowed down or cleared up in horses and cattle that ate the weed. Farmers were also known to rub the sap of the fruit to repair sunspots.

It has been shown, by clinical trials, that the selective anti-tumor effects of Devil's apple are due to Solasodine rhamnosyl glycosides compounds, also found in eggplants. The well known Curaderm formulation contains Solasodine from eggplants. Ref: Planta Med. 2012 Mar;78(4):349-53. doi: 10.1055/s-0031-1298149. Epub 2012 Jan 13.
