Background: To evaluate the optimum protective and curative antitumarogenic dose of the ethanolic leaves extract of Moringa oleifera Lam (ELMO). variety against Ehrlich ascetic carcinoma (EAC) cells.

Methods: The protective and curative antitumor activity of ELMO was evaluated against the EAC tumor model. The activity was assessed using survival time and increase in life span.

Results: Oral administration of all the doses of treated ELMO shown significantly increased in mean survival time and percent of life span, in that 500 mg/kg body wt. shown highest significance.

Conclusions: ELMO treated 500 mg/kg body wt. possesses showed antitumor activity.
