Abstract

Objective: To study the presence of anti-tumorous compounds in Croton bonplandianum. Methods: 50 % ethanolic extract, obtained from dried powdered plant material of C. bonplandianum was assayed for its Brine shrimp cytotoxic activity. Results: It was found that the extract was very effective against brine shrimp and shows LC50 at the concentration of 46.7mg/lit (38 mg/lit -55 mg/lit). Conclusions: It proves the presence of anti-tumorous compounds in C. bonplandianum.
