The current research was focused on evaluation of the cytotoxic and suppressive action of ethanolic extract of(EA1) against human pancreatic carcinoma cell line ASPC-1 after treatment with 25 µg/mL, 50 µg/mL, 100 µg/mL and 200 µg/mL EA1, using MTT assay and Antioxidant activity. Detailed investigations led to reveal the ability of cell patronage through the dreadful upshot of free radicals. The current approach followed MTT assays to examine the long-lasting ability and growth of cells as EA1 restrained the cell viability and growth of ASPC-1. At the end, EA1 showed its potential cytotoxicity and reduced the cellular proliferation of ASPC-1 cells through a pattern, which appeared to be concentration dependent. Our results can form the basis to explore the molecular mechanisms underlying Ethanolic Extract ofinduced cell death in pancreatic cancer cell lines and may serve as an alternative anticancer agent for the treatment of pancreatic carcinoma (PC) with no or least side effects to the patient.
