The plant Clerodendron paniculatum (Verbenaceae) is widely found in Udupi district of Karnataka, India. Plants of the genus Clerodendron were reported to possess potent anti-cancer, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities [1] [2] [3] [4] [5], but, no such reports are available on the plant Clerodendron paniculatum. Hence, the present study was undertaken to evaluate the possible anticancer effect of alcoholic extract and their fractions such as pet ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate, ethyl methyl ketone of the plant by in vitro methods like Trypan blue dye exclusion, MTT and SRB assays. Our studies revealed that alcoholic extract and their fractions showed moderate anticancer potential.
