Abstract

Cancer has become the most dominant disease in the human body. The word “cancer” is now considered as describing hundreds of diseases. It is the most common disease that increases mortality around the world. Regardless of the advances that have occurred for the treatment of cancer, there is still more research needed. ^ The study used secondary compounds extracted from Olive leaves and Chrysanthemum. The goal was to determine their anti- proliferative activities on the various cell lines Chrysanthemum with MCF7, PC3 and Olive leaf with MCF7, BT20, and PC3. The Chrysanthemum and Olive leaf extracts were first obtained from the plants. The following analysis combinations were carried out, Chrysanthemum leaf with MCF7, PC3 and Olive leaf with MCF7, BT20, and PC3. Growth analysis was also conducted using the cell viability indicator Alamar blue. Both extracts significantly reduce the growth of all tumor cell lines.^
