Abstract: The present study was designed to investigate cytotoxic activity of methanol and petroleum ether extracts of the Aerva lanata. Both extracts were subjected to brine shrimp lethality bioassay for possible cytotoxicity where a concentration dependent increment in percent mortality of brine shrimp nauplii was produced by the extracts indicating the presence of cytotoxic principles in these extractives. The cytotoxicity of the extracts were found promising. The results of these studies suggest significant cytotoxicity of different extracts of Aerva lanata. The result that obtained from the Crude extract of the of Aerva lanata have strong cytotoxic activity.
