A excelsa extract and some isolated compound have demonstrated medicinal properties such as significant antileukemic, antibacterial, antifungal and antifertility activites. The present work was desigined to evoulate in vitro anticancer activity of bark of A. excelsa against human breast cancer cells. Methanolic extract of bark of A. excelsa was evaluated for inhibition of cell proliferation and migration of human breast cancer cell line MDA-MB-231. MTT- based cytotoxicity assay was used to assess the effect of methanolic extract of bark of A. Excelsa against proliferation of human breast cancer cell line. Wound healing migration assay was used to assess the effects on the migration ability of human breast cancer cells. Methanolic extract of A. excelsa showed significant anticancer activity against MDA-MB-231 human breast cancer cell line.
