Propolis samples from tropical zones, such as Java (Indonesia) with its vast biodiversity, have become a subject of increasing scientific and economic attention. The association of the chemical composition of propolis from different geographic regions with cytotoxic activities led to the identification of active principles, a fundamental tool to achieve standardization of this bee product. The purpose of this paper was evaluate the quality of propolis collected at different places in Java (Indonesia) based on cytotoxic activity.
