  In present concept paper, we are introducing the concept of multi-system targeted novel toxic compounds that have been isolated from various poisonous plants of Himalayan region of India for self-defence applications. The selected studied poisonous plants are having dual role as nutraceutical and ethno-pharmacological uses apart from their less explored toxic property. However, future detailed work is required for identification and characterization of the precise toxic chemical components that will be used for the formulation of novel multi-system targeted warfare agents for defensive applications.

Keywords: Poisonous Plants; Multisystem Targeted Toxic Compounds; Defensive Warfare Agents
