  • This study aims to assess the possible antitumor effects of the Ursolic Acid through cell death studies. Hence, Jurkat cell lines related to leukemia were subjected to treatment with different concentrations of the Ursolic Acid in order to identify their likely mechanism of death. After completion of cell viability tests, we suggest that this acid used in this study have antiproliferative/ cytotoxic activity in a dose-dependent manner. The results obtained indicate that the Ursolic Acid… CONTINUE READING
