The use of the aqueous extracts of Eleutherococcus senticosus in combination with either cytarabine or N6-(delta 2-isopentenyl)-adenosine gave additive antiproliferative effects against L1210 murine leukemia. The ED50 for E. senticosus root extracts against L1210 cells was approximately 75 micrograms/mL. E. senticosus appears to be potentially useful for reducing the concentration of conventional antimetabolites used for their antiproliferative effects on tumor cells.
