T. asthmatica , which belongs to the family Asclepiadaceae is a small twining a plant with long fleshy roots. The plant shows broad activity against EA and DLA cells. The intraperitoneal injection of PE extract obtained from the powdered entire plant material to the tumor cell transplanted animals arrests the tumor growth and prevents the formation of the tumor. A significant increase in the life span of the drug treated tumor bearing mice were found.
