Abstract:
Millettia pachycarpa belongs to the family Fabaceae, a perennial climbing shrub belonging to the genus Millettia. The present investigation evaluates the cytotoxic activity of methanolic extract of M. pachycarpa  Benth leaf. Brine shrimp lethality bioassay method is used to assess the cytotoxic activity of M. pachycarpa  Benth. The laboratory studies show that brine shrimp bioassay method the LC50 value of methanolic extract of  M. pachycarpaleaf  is 1.7493 µg/ml  with a 95% confidence limit[1] of  1.3679-2.2370 µg/ml.
