Cancer is a disease that develops as a result of the uncontrolled proliferation of cells and can be fatal if left untreated. Side effects of cancer treatment reduce the cure rate of this disease. For this reason, studies in the field of health have shifted to new treatment methods in cancer. As a result of these studies, natural products have become important targets for the development of new anticancer agents. There are many plants belonging to Viburnum opulus L. species. These plant species have economic importance in many sectors due to essential and aromatic oils and secondary metabolites. These plant species are commonly used for the treatment of coughs, stomach aches, and infectious diseases. In this study, the antioxidant and antiproliferative properties of the endemic species Viburnum opulus L. extract were investigated in colon cancer cell lines. In this way, the aim is to develop an effective therapeutic agent for the treatment of cancer.
