Abstract: Phytochemicals are the chemicals its present naturally in plants. Now days these phytochemicals become more popular due to their countless medicinal uses. Nature has been a powerful source of enormous medicines for thousands of years and number of modern drugs has been extracted and exploited from natural sources, for its use in traditional medicine. The present study has been performed experimentally by in vitro method to examine the anti-cancer activity of bark of tecoma stance The human breast cancer cell line (Michigan Cancer Foundation-7 (MCF 7)) was obtained from National Centre for Cell Science (NCCS), Pune and grown in Eagles Minimum Essential Medium (EMEM) containing 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS). The cells were maintained in Minimal Essential Media (MEM) supplemented with 10% Fetal bovine serum (FBS), penicillin (100 U/ml), and streptomycin (100 µg/ml) in a humidified tmosphere of 5% CO2 at 37 °C. Maintenance cultures were passaged weekly, and the culture medium was changed twice a week. Over 50% of all modern scientific drugs are natural products that play an important role in drug development in pharmaceutical industries
