Embelin, a plant-based benzoquinone derivative, has been found to exhibit significant antitumor activity in methylcholanthrene-induced fibrosarcoma in albino rats besides enhancing their survival time. The drug also has an appreciable action on pain and inflammation. The changes in DNA, RNA and protein levels in various organs in the tumor-bearing control and the drug-treated animals were also studied.
