Synopsis: 
The crude hexane and methanol extracts of V divaricata exhibited anti-proliferation activity and as such, it is a potential drug for cancer chemotherapy and prevention.

ABSTRACT

Background: Vernonia divaricata is one of five endemic Vernonia species of Jamaica. The ethno-medicinal uses of other species have been established, however, scientific validation of this species has not yet been done and as such this paper is aimed at identifying the anti-cancer activity of V divaricata against leukaemia, breast and prostate cancer cell lines.

Issue: 
Pages: 
235–9
Synopsis: 
This study was conducted to observe the differences in the level of low molecular weight proteins in the sera of patients with leukaemia in comparison to healthy subjects. The sera of patients with leukaemia showed 15 peaks in the densitometric curve in comparison to the seven peaks of the controls; eight protein fractions appeared in the experimental groups and not in the control group.
