Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer in females worldwide. It was found about 37.5% in Thai To investigate the effect of Cratoxylum cochinchinense extract on anti-proliferation and apoptosis induction in breast cancer cells. Cell proliferation and cell viability assay were determined by MTT assay. Hoechst 33342 and JC-1 staining were used to determined nuclear morphological changes and mitochondrial membrane potential, respectively. C. cochinchinense extract showed anti-proliferation in MDA-MB-468 treated cells in a time- and dose-dependent manner with IC50 value of 19.19+0.8 μg/ml. In addition, C. cochinchinense extract induced nuclear condensation and apoptotic bodies in MDA-MB-468 treated cells. JC-1 staining revealed that C. cochinchinense extract induced mitochondrial membrane dysfunction. C. cochinchinense extract showed anti-proliferation and apoptosis induction properties in MDA-MB-468
