Note(s): The pioneering work of Bergmann (1949) on antibacterial agents from marine organisms has led to major research effortsover the past two decades to discover cures from the sea forhuman diseases. A more vigorous effort has been launched by several groups during the past five years, culminating in a recentlyexpanded effort by the National Cancer Institute for invitro screening of marine organisms against a large number ofhuman cancers and viruses.
