Cytotoxicity Assessment of the Aerial Parts of Macrotyloma uniflorum Linn.

S.M.A. Kawsar, E. Huq and N. Nahar    

Abstract: The fractionated crude extracts dichloromethane (CH2Cl2), ethyl acetate (EtOAc), 1-butanol (1-BuOH) and aqueous (H2O) from aerial parts of Macrotyloma uniflorum were screened for cytotoxicity using the brine shrimp lethality bioassay technique. Most of the extracts were found to be non-toxic and this indicates that the ethnobotanical use (oral applications) of the experimental plant are justified.
