Cytotoxic effect of Plectranthus neochilus extracts in head and neck carcinoma cell lines

Following a tendency of studying the potential effects of plant extracts to cancer, this study aimed to evaluate in vitro the cytotoxic activity of Plectranthus neochilus (PN) extracts and its fractions in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) cell lines and assess their tumor specificity. MTT assay was conducted with two HNSCC cell lines, FaDu (hypopharynx carcinoma) and SCC-25 (tongue carcinoma), one...

Phytochemical screening and haematological studies of Parquetina nigrescens ethanol and chloroform leaves extracts in normal albino rats

The effects of crude ethanol-chloroform extract of Parquetina nigrescens leaves on the haematological parameters of normal albino rats were investigated at dose of 50 and 100 mg/kg body weight (b.w). Acute toxicity study (LD50) and phytochemical constituents of the extracts were also evaluated. Thirty (30) male Wistar rats were grouped into five (5) of 6 rats each (n = 6). Group A: Control; administered 2 ml of normal...
