Screening of phytochemicals for their anti angiogenic potential has been a growing area of research in the current decade. The following study proposes virtual screening, drug likeliness and ADME filtering of specific phytochemical based compounds retrieved from 'TIP - A Database of Taiwan Indigenous Plants'. The study further subjects the filtered phytochemicals for their molecular docking analysis and molecular dynamics simulation studies against the prominent receptor tyrosine kinases EGFR, VEGFR-1 & VEGFR-2 involved in angiogenesis phenomenon. Among the various in silico analysis done and precise interpretations, the current study finally proposes 1-Hydroxycryprochine as one of the most potent lead in combating angiogenic phenomenon and thus cancer. The following study involves all such important use of in silico platforms, tools and analysis protocols which are expected to reproduce commendable results in wet lab studies. The proposed compound 1-hydroxycryprochine tends to justify its anti angogenic potential in all interactional and stability
