Abstract This investigation aims to evaluate the antitumor and antioxidant potential of Chrysaora quinquecirrha (sea nettle) nematocyst venom on Ehrlich ascites carcinoma (EAC) tumor model. Tumor was induced in mice by intraperitoneal injection of EAC cells. The antitumor effect of sea nettle nematocyst venom (SNV) peptide was evaluated by assessing in vitro cytotoxicity, survival time, hematological, and antioxidant parameters. Intraperitoneal injection of SNV peptide increased the survival time of the EAC-bearing mice. The SNV peptide brought back the altered levels of the hematological and antioxidant parameters in a dose dependent manner in EAC-bearing mice. The results were comparable to that of the result obtained from the animals treated with the standard drug 5-fluorouracil (20 mg/kg bw). Thus, present study revealed that SNV peptide possessed significant antitumor and antioxidant activity.
