Andrographolide (Andro), a diterpenoid, isolated from Andrographis paniculata, has exerted it anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effects from sequenced combinations of andrographolide and cisplatin on ovarian cancer cell lines. In other study, Andrographolide, a chemical constituent isolated from the Leaves of Andrographis paniculata Nees, significantly reduced the expression of hVEGF-A165 compared with a mock group in the Clara cells of the lungs and its anticancer and immunomodulatory activities may be potential to provide a cure for pulmonary tumors and a cancer therapeutic agent in the future.
