Since studies involving the activities of P. americana extracts on various cancer cell lines are limited, the major objectives of this study were to: 1) evaluate the antiproliferative activity of three extracts from P. americana against human breast (MCF-7) and colon cancer (HCT-116) cells in vitro and 2) investigate the changes at the protein and gene levels after exposing the HCT-116 cells to P. americana extracts in vitro.
