Cell death-inducing activity of opiates in human oral tumor cell lines.


In screening cytotoxic agents in morphine alkaloids [TE1-10], codeinone [TE8] was cytotoxic against two human oral tumor cells lines (HSC-2 and HSG). The cytotoxic activity of codeinone (CC50=1.0-1.2 microg/mL) against HSC-2 or HSG cells was higher than that of doxorubicin (CC50=1.9-2.0 microg/mL). Human oral gingival fibroblasts (HGF) were relatively… (More)
