Antineoplastic Screening of Some Medicinal Plants Against Ehrlich Ascites Carcinoma in Mice

A.Y.K.M. Masud Rana , J.A. Khanam and M. Asad-Ud-Daula

Abstract:
Swiss Albino mice inoculated with Ehrlich ascites carcinoma cells were treated with the extract of some medicinal plants include Citrullus colocynthis, Withania somnifera, Bambusa arundinacea, Mesua ferrea, Acorus calamus, Myrica nagi, Calotropis procera, Catharanthus roseus, Ficus racemosa and also with clinically highly effective drug bleomycin. Among the medicinal plants Bambusa arundinacea showed highest cell growth inhibition 81.9%. The tumor cell growth inhibition were found to be decreased as bleomycin>Bambusa arundinacea (ethylacetate extract)>Citrullus colocynthis>Ficus racemosa (methanol extract)>Withania somnifera>Mesua ferrea> Catharanthus roseus (methanol extract). Acorus calamus and Calotropis procera did not show any inhibition.
