The anticancer-cytotoxic activities of ethanolic extract of Adhatoda vasica were tested under in-vitro conditions in different cancer cell lines like MCF-7, MDAMB-231, Hela, HepG2 cell lines. The active constituents carbohydrates, steroids, Alkaloids, Tannins, Flavanoids, Saponins, gums and mucilage. The ethanolic extract of Adhatoda vasica showed a good cytotoxic activity (60%,60%,85% and 65%) in Hela, HepG2, MCF-7, MDAMB-231 cells at 24 hrs respectively. In this in-vitro studies the normal cells are act as a positive control. The ethanolic extract of Adhatoda vasica shows maximum percentage of 85% after 24 hrs. From this study, it can be concluded that the phytoconstituents of Adhatoda vasica have significant anticancer-cytotoxic activity on Hela, HepG2, MCF-7, MDAMB-231 cells.
