Effect of Semecarpus anacardium nut extract against aflatoxin B1-induced hepatocellular carcinoma

The antitumour activity of S. anacardium nut extract against aflatoxin B1-induced experimental hepatocellular carcinoma was investigated in rats. Rats received the extract at 200 mg/kg daily for 14 days in sunflower oil by gavage.
