Tehranolide named as new type of a sesquiterpene lactone with an endoperoxide group which purified from Artemisia diffusa and having similar structure to Artemisinin. Tehranolide is hypothesized to possess effects akin to Artemisinin, which is active against cancer cells. In the present research we emphasized on the direct correlation between the tumor sizes, immune response; including cytokin network, T regulatory cells and Tehranolide intraperitoneally injected Tehranolide. In this study, Tehranolide was purified from Artemisia difussa. First we evaluated the effects of Tehranolide on cell growth inhibition (in vitro) by MTT assay and second investigated the immune responses, these include measuring tumor growth in the female Balb/c mice transplanted with spontaneous mouse mammary tumor and treated with Tehranolide, splenocyte proliferation detected by using the BrdU kit, measurement of cytokine profile by ELISA and analysis of T-lymphocytes subpopulation in spleen by Flow cytometry. Our results showed a significant (p
