The present study absorbed the anti-cancer activity of diosmin at 50, 100, 150, 200 µM/ml for 24h of treatment on dose dependent manner. Group II animals were administrated 0.01% NDEA to induce primary liver carcinoma. Cancer bearing experimental animals were treated orally with the drug diosmin at the dosage level of 200 mg per kg/bodyweight for 28 successive days. Results: Diosmin treatment on HepG2 cells constrains nearly half of the cell population and proliferation at the dose of 100 µM/ml and in vivo experimental studies showed remarkable repossession in biochemical and morphological characteristics. These results summarizes that both in vivo and in vitro anti-carcinogenic activity of diosmin could be an outstanding flavonoid in the treatment of HCC because of its therapeutic and pharmacological properties.
