Abstract: In this work an ethanolic extract of flaxroots was shown to cause anticancerogenic effects on two different mammacarcinoma cell types in vitro. Furthermore different phytoestrogens, such as Genistein and Secoisolariciresinol, caused similar but weaker effects. The extract acts supposably as a plantal multicomponent mixture, whereas the phytoestrogens don`t play a leading role in its impact.
