Effect of Coccinia indica on Blood Glucose, Insulin and Key Hepatic Enzymes in Experimental Diabetes
TLDR
It is demonstrated that all the guduchi extracts were able to enhance the effect of radiation significantly and the most effective extract was Mch, where the reduction in the surviving fraction of cells was higher than either Aqu, Met, Met + irradiation or Dox - irradiation group.
Determination of Antineoplastic Activity of Rohituka, Aphanamixis Polystachya (Wall) RN Parker in Hela Cells: Correlation with Clonogenicity and DNA Damage
TLDR
This study demonstrates that APE is able to kill HeLa cells effectively and this cell killing effect of APE may be due its ability to induce DNA damage.
Evaluation of the antineoplastic activity of guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) in Ehrlich ascites carcinoma bearing mice.
TLDR
Evaluated the effectiveness of TCE in the various stages of tumor development, where 50 mg/kg TCE was administered intraperitoneally after 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 or 15 d of tumor inoculation and these days have been arbitrarily designated as stage I, II, III, IV or V, respectively for reasons of clarity.
Evaluation of anticancer activity of the alkaloid fraction of Alstonia scholaris (Sapthaparna) in vitro and in vivo
TLDR
The anticancer effect of various doses of an alkaloid fraction of Sapthaparna, Alstonia scholaris (ASERS), was studied in vitro in cultured human neoplastic cell lines and in Ehrlich ascites carcinoma bearing mice.
Alteration in the Radiosensitivity of HeLa Cells by Dichloromethane Extract of Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia)
TLDR
HeLa cells treated with TCE showed an increase in lactate dehydrogenase and decrease in glutathioneS-transferase activity at all postirradiation times, and Lipid peroxidation increased up to 4 hours postir Radiation and declined gradually up to 12 hours postIRradiation.
Dichloromethane Extract of Giloe (Tinospora Cordifolia, Wild) Increases the Radiosensitivity of Cultured Hela Cells Exposed to Different Doses of Γ-Radiation
TLDR
An attempt has been made to evaluate the potential of dichloromethane extract of giloe i.e. Tinospora cordifolia (TCE) in cultured HeLa cells and found that the TCE treatment increased the radiosensitivity of He La cells by reducing glutathione-S-transferase activity and increasing the activity of lactate dehydrogenase and lipid peroxidation.
Antiproliferative activity of Tinospora cordifolia determined by cell count and trypan blue dye exclusion method in mcf-7 cells
TLDR
The result suggest that aqueous and hydro-alcoholic extracts of Tinospora cordifolia could reduce cell count and cell viability in MCF-7 cell line and act as effective anti-proliferative agent in mammary tumor.
Cytotoxic and apoptotic activities of extracts of Withania somnifera and Tinospora cordifolia in human breast cancer cells
TLDR
Potential anti-cancer activities of the ethanolic and extracts of TC and WS against human breast cancer cells are revealed and their potential for drug discovery is revealed.
In vitro antitubercular, anticancer activities and IL-10 expression in HCT-116 cells of Tinospora sinensis (Lour.) Merr. leaves extract
TLDR
Among all extracts, n-hexane leaf extract was found to be potent against inhibition of colon cancer cells (HCT-116) and Mycobacteria, with significant immunostimulant activity.

The micronucleus assay: an evaluation of its use in determining radiosensitivity in vitro.
TLDR
The cytokinesis-block micronucleus assay was used to measure radiosensitivity in vitro in a panel of seven cell lines and showed a complex relationship, with one micron nucleus per binucleate cell corresponding to a wide range of lethal lesions depending on the cell line.
DNA damage as a basis for 4'-demethylepipodophyllotoxin-9-(4,6-O-ethylidene-beta-D-glucopyranoside) (etoposide) cytotoxicity.
TLDR
The correlation between the effective dose range in the colony-forming assay and the DNA scission experiments supports the hypothesis that DNA breakage is responsible for drug cytotoxicity and may provide an experimental model for elucidating the exact mechanism of action of VP-16.
Interphase action of vinblastine and vincristine: Differences in their lethal action through the mitotic cycle of cultured mammalian cells
Vinblastine and vincristine, agents which cause arrest of cells in mitosis, have been examined for their effect on the survival of synchonously growing HeLa and Chinese hamster cells. At
Effect of withaferin a on ehrlich ascites tumor cells — cytological observations
TLDR
The inhibition of Ehrlich ascites tumor growth is thought to represent a combined effect of withaferin A action and immune reactions.

Effects of vincristine on cell survival, cell cycle progression, and mitotic accumulation in asynchronously growing Sarcoma 180 cells.
TLDR
Interference with cytokinesis during prolonged VCR exposure may represent a lethal effect of VCR that is separate from its short-term effects, and could serve as the basis for the clinical study of the antitumor effects of prolonged V CR infusions.
