However, it remains unknown how exactly CWE inhibits tumor growth. In this study, using human cervical cancer HeLa cells, the authors postulated that CWE has the ability to inhibit tumor growth. The study shows that CWE dose-dependently suppressed colony formation and inhibited the proliferation of HeLa cells through blockade of cell cycle… CONTINUE READING
