Abstract

This paper represents the phytochemicals present in the shade dried leaf extract of Mucuna pruriens (L.) DC. In this research work qualitative assessment of the presence of different phyochemicals was performed. After that the extract was assessed for antitumour assay following brine shrimp cytotoxicity experiment. The sample/ extract was found to be positive in antitumour assay. Hence this extract can be of ecofriendly use to control the tumorous growth of the biological systems.
