Anti-canceractivities of chloroform and hydro-alcohol leaf extracts of Bambusa bambos was evaluatedin vitro using Dalton’sLymphoma Ascites (DLA)andEhrlich’s Ascites Carcinoma (EAC)cell lines by Trypan blue dye exclusion method. The chloroform extract exhibited betteractivitycompared to hydro-alcoholextract.Further hemolytic activities of both the extracts were carriedout to measure theextent of damageto normal red blood cell membranes. The findingssuggested that both the extracts produced no signs of hemolysis indicatingthat the extracts are not toxic to normal erythrocytes.
