The Novel Technology:
The invention discloses extracts having potential anticancer activity and the process of preparing extracts from the plant – Wrightia tinctoria. The anticancer activity of the extract shows maximum cytotoxicity against skin cancer as well as substantial cytotoxicity towards cervical and lung cancer cell lines.
- To induce apoptosis in cancer cells (particularly skin, cervical and lung cancer)
- Targets only cancer cells (no cell death in normal cells) and extract can be used as safe and natural chemotherapeutic agent
- Helps in reducing cost of chemotherapy
- Anticancer compounds from extract may be identified further from Wrightia tinctoria leaf extract to identify active ingredient and for formulation of specific drug molecule
Early-stage technology demonstrating anticancer properties in leaf extract of Wrightia tinctoria. Looking for potential licensee(s) for taking the technology to next stage.
