Further studies are considerate to determine the mechanism of the cytotoxic or antiproliferative effect of these extracts and other inflammatory parameters. Table 3 In vitro cytotoxic assay of plant extracts from Copallifeda copallifera against five tumor cell lines using the sulforhodamine B assay.


Results indicate that the extracts reduced larval growth and suggest that detected constituents may be partially responsible for the biological activity observed. The results are expressed as IC 50 values. Inhibition of platelet phospholipase A 2 copalljfera by catuaba extract suggests antiinflammatory properties. This often sticky form of copal is commonly referred to as Copal Blanco and Mexican White Copal in the incense trade.
