One of the way for obtaining that purpose is by exploring the source of nature vegetation owning potency as anticancer. The aim of this research was to examine cytotoxic activity of Ageratum conyzoides L. leaves on Hela cell, and it was determined by cell viability method. The number of viable and nonviable cell was accounted by direct counting method using trypan blue exclusion. The cytotoxicity test of etanolic extract of bandotan leaves to Hela cell showed that LC50 value was equal to 855 µg/ml.
