  • SummaryMalignant glioblastoma is one of the most common malignant tumors in the neurological system. Asterosaponin 1, a new cytostatic agent from the starfish Culcita novaeguineae appear to exhibit various biological activities, including antitumor effect, but the function and mechanism of this new agent on glioblastoma cells has not previously been determined. In the present study, we investigated the proliferation change of human glioblastoma U87MG cells exposed to different concentrations (2… CONTINUE READING
