The anticancer properties of plant extracts were analyzed using, auto toxicity studies, in vivo studies. Effect of different extracts of Cardiospermum helicacabum Linn on hematological parameters in EAC Induced mice and Effect of different extracts of Cardiospermum helicacabum Linn roots on various biochemical changes in EAC Induced liquid tumor model in mice. The plant possess activities like antimicrobial, antifungal, antiparasitic, antidiarrheal, anxiolytic, rubifacient, antipyretic and management of painful, arthritic inflammatory conditions. Further investigations are needed to assess its isolated mode of action on various activities.
