PURPOSE Previous studies have reported that the Curcuma wenyujin Y.H. Chen et C. Ling extract, which has a high furanodiene content, showed anti-cancer effects in breast cancer cells in vitro. The present study was designed to evaluate the in vitro and in vivo anti-cancer activity of furanodiene. METHODS The in vitro effects of furanodiene were examined on two human breast cancer cell lines, MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 cells. Assays of proliferation, LDH release, mitochondrial membrane potential… CONTINUE READING
