Antitumour Activity Of Elephantopus Scaber Linn Against Dalton's Ascitic Lymphoma
The antitumour activity of the leaves of Elephantopus scaber has been evaluated against Dalton's ascitic lymphoma (DAL) in Swiss albino mice. A significant enhancement of mean survival time of Elephantopus scaber treated tumour bearing mice was found with respect to control group. Elephantopus scaber treatment was found to enhance peritoneal cell counts. When these Elephantopus scaber treated animals underwent I.p. inoculation with DAL cells, tumour cell growth was found to be inhibited. Fourteen days after transplantation, Elephantopus scabertreated group were able to reverse the changed in the haematological parameters, protein and PCV consequent to tumour inoculation.
