Determination of Phytochemical Profile and Anti-Oxidation Activity of Annona Fruit and its Effect on Lymphoma Cell Proliferation

 A high intake of some vegetables and fruits has been linked to a lower risk of cancer. We predicted that Annona fruit, which is high in fibres and phytochemicals with anti-cancer effects, could be useful in slowing lymphoma growth. The goal of this research was to extract the anticancer activity using a suitable solvent and analyse the phenolic content and antioxidation activity of the plants. Water, methanol, and chloroform solvents were used to extract the Annona fruit fractions. The total phenolic, flavonoids, and tannin content, anti-oxidation properties, and inhibition of in vitro cell proliferation using Ramos-1 lymphoma cells were all measured in each fraction. The phenolics, flavonoids, tannins, and anti-oxidation activity were highest in the methanol fractions. Although methanol extracts of skin, pulp, and seeds had a moderate influence on Ramos-1 cell growth, chloroform extracts of pulp and seeds had a substantial effect. Annona fruits may be useful in the prevention or treatment of lymphoma, according to our findings.
