Flavonoids are considered as potential explore to treat cancer and they are ubiquitous. The chemical structure and the nature of the polyphenolic flavonoids are responsible for their anticancer actions. Objective: The present investigation concentrates on the cytotoxic effect of flavonoids in A549 adenocarcinoma cell lines. Methodology: the plant extract was subjected to TLC for confirmation and HPLC confirm the pure form of the flavonoids and the induction of the cytotoxicity was studied using AO/EB, PI and the uptake of the PI was confirmed using the FACS in A549 cells. results: the TLC and HPLC results confirmed the presence of flavonoides. Flow cytometry denotes the percentage of the cells in the G0/G1 and the G2 stage. This indicates the accumulation of the cells in the apoptotic and proapoptotic stages. Conclusion: These findings indicate that the flavonoids from the Sphaeranthus amarathoides may be promising anticancer agents to control the cell growth in A549 cells.
