Ethnopharmacological relevance: Dittrichia viscosa (L.) Greuter (& ldquo;Sari ot, Yapis & cedil;kan andiz otu & rdquo; in Turkish) is a medicinal plant that has been traditionally used in the Mediterranean area. This plant is used by the local population for the treatment of cancer. Investigation of their biological activities is therefore very important to be supported by scientific basis for traditional use.
