Extraction Volatile Olis from Mint Mentha Piperita and Study the Cytotoxicity Effect in some Cancer Cell Line


This study was conducted to determine the impact of the most important active ingredients which are present in leaves of mint plant. The volatile oil was extracted from the leaves of a mint plant and investigated its toxic effects on the growth of tumor cell lines of cervical cancer( Hela) line human larynx cancer (Hep-2), line of cancer cells the pelvic area RD and compared with a Rat embryonic fibroblast line (REF) ,by using Technology transplant tissue in the glass. The results revealed that significant differences of extract on the tumor cell line , the cytotoxicity for the mentioned line was dependent on concentrations and exposure time 48hr ,while had no effect on the REF normal cells even after 72hr at exposure.
