 Phytochemicals, the natural chemical constituent, protect the plants against diseases and form their outer's color. Phytochemicals may be next potential sources of new medicine for treatment of diseases with little or no side effects.
Allicin is phytochemical containing sulfur in the class of organosulfur compound, found abundantly in onion and garlic.
Colon Cancer is defined as a condition of the abnormal proliferation of cells in the colon.
Allicin, a biologically active component in freshly crushed garlic extract, in the study of its effects against colon cancer cell lines HCT-116, LS174T, HT-29, and Caco-2, showed that allicin exert it anti proliferative property to cause death of  HCT-116 cell. Other in the study of the effect of allicin on human colon cancer cell line LoVo and the combined effect of allicin and CPT-11 on this cancer cell line, showed that allicin may be a potent agent in treating colon cancer as it not only exerted the anti-proliferation effect on human colon cancer cell line LoVo by induction of apoptosis and arrestment of cell cycle but also enhanced the cytotoxicity of CPT-11 on the colon cancer LoVo cell.
