ABSTRACT
There are 46,000 new cases of peritoneal carcinomatosis per year in the USA and 17,700 in Brazil. New media, including plant derivatives, are being tested in its treatment. Plectranthus amboinicus is a medicinal plant widely used in Brazil, especially in the northeast region, for the treatment of various diseases, including cancer. This present study evaluates the intraperitoneal use of aqueous extracts of Plectranthus amboinicus (AEPa) at a dose of 200 mg / kg for the treatment of the ascitic form of Ehrlich carcinoma. It is concluded also the AEPa produced antineoplastic effect in ascitic form of Ehrlich carcinoma.

Figure 1: Weight of the animals (Treated goup) G1 - G2 animals/ D1- D9.

Mentions: In relation to the weight of the animals, it was observed that over the 9 days there was stabilization of weight in G1 and an increase in G2, which was statistically significant (p = 0.027). This may indicate a greater increase in ascites in the untreated group (G2) (Fig. 1-2).
