    Introduction: Natural products have been used since ancient times for the treatment of many diseases. Biodiversity and traditional medical knowledge had provided useful lead compounds for cancer chemotherapy. In the Indian medicine system, Asparagus racemosus, commonly called Shatavari has been used as a nutritive tonic, general female reproductive tonic, fertility tonic, treatment for sexual debility, and as an aphrodisiac. Aim: The aim of the present study is to study the in vitro cytotoxic effect of A. racemosus extracts on SKOV3 cells line (HTB77) using 3-(4, 5dimethythiazol2-yl)-2, 5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay. Materials and Methods: SKOV3 cells line (HTB77) commercially purchased from the American Type Culture Collection were cultured in McCoy’s 5A modified medium supplemented with fetal bovine serum (heat inactivated, 10%) and penicillin-streptomycin (1%) at 37°C in 5% CO. MTT colorimetric assay that measures the reduction of yellow MTT by mitochondrial succinate dehydrogenase is used to check the viability of the cells. Result: It was observed that the extract showed promising anticancer activity toward the selected cancer cell line on dose-dependent manner. Conclusion: A. racemosus contains a rich source of steroidal saponins which are important secondary metabolites with cytotoxic activity. Furthermore, research should be directed toward the isolation of bioactive compounds from these plants.
