The study was aimed to evaluation of the anticancer (liver cancer) activity of the leaves of Ipomoea pes-tigridis against liver HEPG2 Cell line. The leaves of Ipomoea pes-tigridis hydro alcoholic extract were tested for its inhibitory effect on HEPG2 Cell Line. The percentage viability of the cell line and the cytotoxicity activity of Ipomoea pes-tigridis against HEPG2 Cell line was carried out by using MTT assay method. Ipomoea pes-tigridis ethanolic extract has significant cytotoxicity effect on HEPG2 Cell Line in the concentration range at 500µg/mL produce 99.87% of cell inhibition. From the above performed assay, ethanolic extract of these drug shows greater activity on HEPG2 cell line that means Ipomoea pestigridis can be used as anticancer activity particularly for liver cancer
