  1. Results were expressed as Mean ± SEM (n = 3) and analysed using one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s post hoc test of significance [where different alphabets denote significant difference (p < 0.05)]. Statistical comparison between the mean % viability of each extract and its negative control was performed using one-way ANOVA followed by Dunnett’s post hoc test of significance wherein *p < 0.05 and **p < 0.01 were considered to be statistically significant and very statistically significant compared to negative control. T cordifolia extracts were tested at concentrations of 200, 100, 50, 25 μg/mL and Doxorubicin was tested at concentrations of 0.01, 0.1, 1 and 10 μg/mL
