CONTEXT Dihydroartemisinin (DHA) exhibits anticancer activity in a number of human cancer cells. However, it is still unknown whether DHA has anticancer effect on nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) cells. AIMS To investigate the anticancer activity of DHA on CNE-2 cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cell cycleand invasion assay were used to detect the effect of DHA on CNE-2 cells. Protein molecular differences were examined by Western blot. RESULTS DHA strongly inhibited cell proliferation by induced… CONTINUE READING
