Biological Activity of Diospyrin towards Ehrlich Ascites Carcinoma in Swiss A Mice
26 February 2007 (online)
Diospyrin, a bis-naphthoquinone derivative, has been identified as a biologically active principle present in the bark extract of Diospyros montana Roxb. which inhibited the in vivo growth of Ehrlich Ascites Carcinoma (E.A.C.), in Swiss A mice.
