Hydrophis spiralis) was evaluated against Ehrlichs Ascites Carcinoma (EAC) in Swiss albino mice and HeLa and Hep2 tumor cell cultures. Among the different dose tested 4.18 g mL-1 at 24 h was found to effectively inhibit cancer cell proliferation. The same dose on EAC-bearing mice by i.p. injection significantly reduced the tumor growth and was demonstrated by increased life span of the mice by 182.81%.]]>
