Scutellaria barbata (SB) is widely used as an antitumor agent in China, but the antitumor components of SB are still unclear. The antitumor activity of various fractions of an ethanol extract of SB was studied in six human malignant cell lines. Bio-based assays showed that non-polar and low-polar solvent fractions of SB had dose-dependent cytotoxicities on six cancer cell lines. The IC(50) values of these fractions on the cancer cell lines tested ranged from 16 to 70 microg/mL after 48 h of… CONTINUE READING
