Phytochemical screening test shows the presence of Saponin, Glycoside, Flavonoids, Tannin, Triterpenoids and Phenolic compound. Free radicals can cause some major confounded illnesses like Diabetes mellitus, coronary disease, Cancer. The current examination was intended to assess the cancer antioxidant properties of ethanol extract of Artocarpus lacucha leaves. Free radical scavenging activity was assessed utilizing 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) free radical. The IC50 of the ethanol Artocarpus lacucha leaves extract was 49.89μg/ml and that of ascorbic acid was 6.14μg/ml. Total Flavonoid content of the Artocarpus lacucha leaves extract was figure evoking the equation and discovered to be 811.9mg QE/gm dry extract. Total phenolic content of the Artocarpus lacucha leaves extract was determined utilizing the equation and discovered to be 164.4mg GAE/gm dry extract. Total tannin content of the Artocarpus lacucha leaves extracts was determined utilizing the equation and discovered to be 400.87mg GAE/gm dry extract. The examination uncovers that the Artocarpus lacucha leaves utilization would apply a few valuable impacts by prudence of their significant antioxidant activity.
