Objectives: The objective of this study is to assess the cytoprotective effect of ethanol fraction (EtF) of Vernonia amygdalina Del. leaves EtF against Vero cells which induced by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).Methods: Cytoprotective effects of EtF were analyzed by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazolyl-2)2,5-dipheniltetrazolium bromide to Vero cells which induced by 0.8 mM H2O2, apoptosis was determined by flow cytometry, and reactive oxygen species (ROS) expression was analyzed by immunocytochemistry.Results:

In the analysis of apoptosis by flow cytometry was showed the percentage of viable cell count of 59.56% and EtF was decreased the expression of ROS.Conclusion: EtF has cytoprotective activity toward Vero cells induced by 0.8 mM H2O2.
